Comments: I remember rinding in the family car listening to either KRUX or KRIZ. Dad would drop us kids off and we would spend the whole afternoon and evening running from ride to ride.
A former co-worker and I used to talk about the "good old days" at Legend City.

Thanks for the memories,

Comments: Wow! Thanks for doing this! It has been so long~! I was there from '79-to close. Omg! I was cashier and they moved the enterance to the side by the wax museum then some patron complained when we with cash went infront on the sky ride to get to the otherside of the park. So then we had to walk with money to the other side with money.
Growing up with Legend City and I still have the Yellow shirt I wore~.Loved it.

Comments: In the 1970s I lived in Scottsdale Arizona as a family you would go you would drive down McDowell Road turn on buttes Road up over the hill you would see the lights in the park and the sky ride your heart would start racing your parents would tell you to calm down and you knew you were going to have the best tim

Comments: My dad was one of the many investors of LC. We used to go often to support the investment. I remeber the Roller Coaster ride that scared me to death. I thought the nose of it would fall over the edge and we would crash to the ground. I learned to love it. I enjoyed the Sky Ride and the shack that was an optical illusion inside. It made you feel like a giant. I liked the peddle boats and just sitting by the pond and talking with my friends. Those were great fun innocent days. Going down memory lane has been fun and wonderful and I thank you for the opportunity to do so. T. Jarvis

Comments: I arrived to Phoenix in 1964 at the age of three. I can remember going to Legend City during the early 70's, Big Surf, Phoenix Giants games, the go kart tracks on Washington, the stinky stockyards, ASU football under Frank Kush, Compton Terrace, Beeline Dragway, tubing the Salt River in the late 70's, the Flumes, desert keg parties in north Phoenix, Deer Valley cycle park...

Comments: Thank you so much for this site and all of the memories that go along with it. I spent many days and nights at Legend City with family and friends. We would save our babysitting money to buy the 'all rides' pass! Good times! I was telling my son about it last night and we googled it just to see what might come up. What a great surprise! Thank you again!

Comments: Legend City was just that "A Legend"...Had so much fun there in the 70's...I left Arizona in 1980 to attend the ARMY, came home to Phoenix in 2005 and was shocked of how much the City had went to hell...Legend City was gone, the old Christown Mall was called Spectrum Mall, the old neighborhood I grew up in as a kid (15th Avenue/Grand Avenue) looked really nasty and full of druggy's, drunks, bums, etc...Thank you for this great website...I really miss the great City and State I once lived in..

Comments: I almost forgot to mention, The AZ Historical Society Museum at 68th St (College) and Curry, (I have not been there for a few years) had a good Wallace and Ladmo Exhibit, and good history of the close by area... Troy.
Date: 3/28/2011   Time: 11:13:28 PM
Comments: I was born in Phoenix in '62 raised in Scottsdale / Tempe and remember going to Legend City with Mom and Dad as a kid, riding the sky ride. Wallace and Ladmo also at the AZ State fair and Los Arcos Mall every year. KRIZ, KRUX, KUPD, KDKB, Alice Cooper, Hub cap and the wheels. Compton Terrace concerts, the go-cart tracks across the street on Washington, Phoenix Zoo (still there now). I worked at Legend City, in food and beverage, in the late 70's early 80's for the Capell brothers carnivals (Bruce & Barbra Inman), before it closed. If you purchased a drink or food during this time period, I probably put it in the concession stand for you. I had a great time and miss it dearly now that it is torn down and an SRP office complex. The park was a few years before it's time in Phoenix, and would now do well because of the huge population, even with the summer heat, modern water park features (Like Big Surf) would still attract crowds to it, I believe. Lots of Great memories...Troy Hasse.

Comments: i too was born in phoenix az 1956 grew up in apache junction az 1960 till 1980 i remenber my father taking my sister and us boys to ledgend city , and seeing wallace and ladmo and hub cap and his band and gerald, i did not alays go i spent most of my life in and out of hospitals with epilipsy never got a ladmo bag but aways wished for one it was a shame they closed it down cause those of us that lived in apache junction had no where to go after it closed other than the lakes or stay home and learn to be a couch potatoe, or hike the superstitions , they even closed apacheland but now would be a good time for someone to build a new legend city or apacheland to create more jobs for us arizonas but i dobt our government would go for a ideal of creating a job site where the employee could have fun doing his or her job while making money to pay thier bills instead they want us on unemployment so they can keep thier jobs and not have to be on welfare , i say shame on our law makers our government for causing the legal citizens to be unemployed

Comments: As a kid, my favorite ride was the log ride. If it were here today, it would still be my favorite ride. It is a shame that such a loving place has to now be only in our memories.... Times are a changing, and I'm not sure if losing a landmark such as Legend City is change in the right direction. I speak for all of us who knew and loved the place, we sure do miss it!

Comments: Appreciate the great effort put into this trip down memory lane. Was also a teenager in the late 70's early 80's and started coming to Pheonix to stay with relatives for summer vacation. "Where do you guys want to go first this year?" Well it became a pretty stupid question , honestly. Thank you again.

Comments: I worked at LC for a couple of years after I graduated high school and going to community colege, like everyone it was the best of times! the park was fairly new, about 65or66 I started working the river ride infact I still have the buckskin style uniform they gave me, not that I can fill in it. Then moved to the mine/dutchman shack ride, the same crew did both attractions so we could have coverage on the mine ride if we thought there was some one was going to try to get out of the car and vandalize the ride, it was a great crew, I have lost track of bruce w??? so if your out there drop me a line, this is dude. In those two years I also worked the LC queen, sky ride, and when the park started opening later I would work stocking food, servicing soda machines and maintenance before starting my ride shift. Thanks for the trip down memory lane again GOOD TIMES dudekuck@yahoo.com1/15/2011

Comments: What a great job on this website. I was born and raised in AZ. I wouldn't want to have been raised anywhere else. Legend City was so much fun. Sometimes I wish we had the technology we have now then. I would have so many pictures. Thank you for the memories! Fredda

Comments: i got to go to legend city when i was a kid once or twice we lived in buckeye so dad didnt want to make the drive very often. always enjoyed it because wallace and ladmo were there
does anyone remember the wallace and ladmo drive ins. i was always buggin my dad to take us there but he never would. i think he drove by them on purpose just to irritate me
anyway wall boy and ladmo and gerald were a big part of my life . i never missed them on tive
i was talkin to this guy on yahoo messenger who convinced me to pay his 87 cable bill in return for copies of all the wallace and ladmo show. he ran a wallace and ladmo group
needless to say i never saw the movies,. kinda *issed me off since he was the leader of the group on yahoo. hidenchief was his yahoo nick i think he managed apts and did photography and security work a this apt complex he live at
anyway legend city was great

Comments: I took my first girlfriend on our first date to LC, it was great fun, our first kiss was on the sky ride, I will never forget it (1969). Thanks for putting the site together it was a lot of work but it is part of our history here in Phoenix, I was born here in 1953, saw Wall boy and Ladmo a couple of times there, it was a very happy time in our city and our country. I think sometimes the people who had the idea to build LC just were to early. Remember the population back in the 60s was what, 600,000 people or so. Just not enough people and when kids and parents are on vaction (the summer time), who wants to come to Phoenix! Anyway, bring backs the summer nights of Phoenix in the 60s!

Comments: For at least 6 summers in the early 1970s we traveled from Sierra Vista to Phoenix for a week long vacation. We stayed at hotels on Van Buren, yes Van Buren, and went to the Wax Museum, rode go-carts, played mini-golf, did Big Surf and always went to Legend City before going home.

Comments: Hi I grew up watching the Wallace and Ladmo show too, it was the only thing that I wanted to do after school when I was a little kid and I loved it. I really miss it, I miss them both. Crazy as it sounds when my son was 2 years old he was in a commercial with Ladmo for water safety. It was in the backyard of a house. I lost the video that was made. Can anyone tell me where I might to be able to find it. My son is now 21 and I would like to show it to him. Thank you in advance..VERY MUCH. I can be reached at kellylg222@msn.com
please put Ladmo in the subject line. Thank you,

Comments: I was the manager of the 2nd issue of Legend City stock. The first issue sold out, and they needed more money. They started a 2nd issue at $1 a share, and I was the sales manager of that issue. We sold enough stock to complete the construction and make a succesful opening. They had a little cabin where they could make water flow upstream. I was talking to the guy that built and ran it, and he told me the construction to prove water could run upstream was so complicated when designing it he fell out of bed three times!

Comments: I worked there as a teenager during 73-74. It was a great place to work and all of the employees were like a family. It was a great place to hang out as a kid and it's truly missed. Too bad the kids that live here today don't have someplace like this to hang out...... Karen Tellez (Grainger)

Comments: Great website! Remember the "Rage Cage"? Ferris wheel with the spinning cages- everything would drop out of your pockets and you would get rained on by change. Invariably, someone would lose their lunch and that would also rain down.

Comments: The last time I was at Legend City was for a concert. Jackson Brown & Jimmy Buffet, I think. We walked through the vacant park, we had to sneak past some barriers, but it was so sad that it was no longer functioning as an amusement park. Hubby is a native & had been there often, Ive only been there a couple of times.
P.S. I miss Wallace & Ladmo, too!

Comments: I loved Legend City. Don't know why they let it go. I know it's hot here in summer, but seems like they could open it in the fall, winter and spring and still be it operating.They needed lots of trees for shade. I wish I was super rich. I would open up another park for all to enjoy here in are beautiful city. We need some entertainment. Not much to do here in the valley. Miss Legend City :((.

I would go again if they brought it back, i dont care for the fair. I enjoyed reading the comments here, thank you all for the memories!

The older brother of one of my childhood friends who lived behind us worked there. I thought he was so handsome and was really cool because he worked there, was around 1970. What a great place, so many good memories.

Comments: Here's a thought. HOW MANY LEGEND CITY LOVERS WOULD IT TAKE TO RECREATE A SIMILAR PARK IN THE VALLEY SOMEWHERE? FROM THE GROUND UP, WORKING THERE, EVERYTHING! FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF ARIZONANS... ONE GENERATION HAS ALREADY MISSED OUT!!!

Comments: I was born in '61 in Phoenix, and while looking at the photos of the rides was very confused at my own memories?! Maybe my mom didn't take me to LC when I was young-I don't know, but I have NO memory of alot of the boat rides, the sky ride, the cars?! I remember broken down rides (lost Dutchman) and rides that were closed and more of the carnival/fair rides. I remember that huge roller coaster...something Mouse?! I LOVED that ride and it was probably to blame for my love of the thrill of coasters to this day! lol I lost my dad at age 8 and things may have been too tight for me to go when I was younger and LC was in it's glory....I saw enough of the "end" to feel bad each time I went and witnessed the deterioration as there wasn't money for upkeep. Strange how we just kept going though, lol! Thanks for this site! D. Angle

Comments: I worked at Legend City from about 70-72 - Such great memories - looking for more old employees - saw a message from Wendy Dae - well this is Mon Dae - a sister of hers from those days..... I am now a great grandmother and wish it was still around so I could share it with the next generations...

Comments: I worked at LC from 76-78. This was the best job any highschool kid could ever wish for. Many of my girlfriends work there too. We would go out afterwork for pizza at Aurelios in Scottsdale or to Red Devil in Phx. Those were great times. I grew up less than a mile from LC and spent many of my birthday celebrations there. We didn't care if it was July, we had a great time no matter how hot and muggy it was. Sharing these memories with my son about LC made it much easier using this site. Thank you for keeping LC memory alive for us big kids.

Comments: I was born in Phoenix in 1971 and barely remember going to the park, but I loved it. The memories aren't real strong, but remember being very sad when it closed. I vaguely recall tv ad's for park. Too bad Phoenix doesn't have another park because I think it would do great with the year-round weather.

Comments: I remember going to legend city with my family in 1977 when we lived in Casa Grande, Arizona. Seeing this site brings back memories of that time as well as watching Wallace and Ladmo on TV on kpho channel 5 until my family's move to Los Angeles, California in Oct of 1985.

Comments: Love the site! It's an awesome tribute to a bygone era of the internet. The embedded .wav files take me back to a simpler time many people refer to as 1997!

Comments: My favorite
attraction was the Dutchman's Shack where everything was slanted. I wish Legend
City was still there, and that my kids could have experienced it in the 80s and
90s. Thanks for the memories.
