Love it, wish it would relive.

Comments: The last time I went to Legend City, Ladmo stiffed me on a Ladmo bag. He called my row and seat number, then gave it to a little girl next to me. I heckled him the rest of the show. Wallace just shrugged and gave me a what can I do look, but hey I loved those guys and Legend City very much, I wish they were all still around.

Comments: I'm a Phoenix resident since 2000, but fondly remember visiting my aunt here in Mesa in the 60's and early 70's. A trip to Legend City was always a must on every visit for me. I loved the whole place, but the visit was a must for one simple reason - the antique cars. Like most young kids, I couldn't wait to drive a car, and that antique car ride was the only place I could drive legally when I was that age! I would ride those cars over and over again. It is a great memory. Thanks for this website!

Comments: Thank you so much for bring back the fond memories that I had once lived as a young girl. My parents would take us to Legend City on the weekends. As I had became a Teenager a bunch of us girls would go on a Saturday night. When I seen the cars that had brought some really fond memories there. I lived it again. It brought a Big Smile to my face when I seen that. I remember that I got to drive the car for the First time whith my Mother I was like 9 years old, LOL that was so exciting to beable to drive with my Mom sitting next to me. As I had became a Teenager I remember going on the Log ride and getting all wet. That was a Blast. Thank You so much for making my day!. To this day My Husband and I share memories about Legend City. He jokes about it saying I think I seen you there. I just wished that it was still around so our Children could have seen how we spent our weekends. Thank You again.

Comments: Wow! This looked like a real cool amusement park done in good old Arizona fashion! Sad that its no longer around.I wish It had of remained. I was too young at the time to remember it and I dont think I ever went to it as I was only 2 years old when the park closed. But the website sure is great! Maybe someday we Arizona can bring back Legend City, not in the same place of course.

Having grown up in the valle in the 50's and 60's and 70's I was very familiar with Legend City!

Thank you for keeping this website going for us. And thank you for using some of my photographs!

Comments: Wow! ... what great memories! Lived in Phoenix all my life, graduated High School in '70, spent many a night at Legend City. Many, many girlfriends were my guest at Legend City as a first date. I went into the military from '74 to '78 and was soooooo sad to hear Legend City had closed when I returned. Grew up with all the 'players' especially Bill, Lad, and Pat. Thanks for creating such a special venue and tribute to the pioneers who entertained Phoenicians for many, many years.

I was so happy to stumble upon this web site because it triggered some memories. Now I know I'm not crazy, there really was a theme park in Az!! Plus it was so much fun remembering Wallace and Ladmo, I wished and wished for a Ladmo Bag!! Thanks for the memories! Julie, Az native

Comments: Hello, I
just found your wonderful website! I
worked at Legend City from 1969-1974 (mostly in food service). Those were the
happiest times of my teenage years. Legend City was home to me. The ride
operators, food service personnel, clean up crew, nurse, etc., were my
family. When Legend City closed, I felt orphaned. When it was torn down, I felt
like my family home was gone. Sometimes I can still hear: "Welcome to Legend
City, a Wild West Adventure of Guns, Girls and Games" or the song: "If I
Knew You Were Coming, I'd have Baked a Cake." Back in the real world...I have
pictures. I have a picture of "Sgt. Dave" and "Sgt. Rick" in front of the
riverboat ride. Thank you for bringing Legend City "back to life," if only in
memory. Sincerely, Wendy "Windy Dae" (Toombs) Wasson

Comments: I remember going to Legend City to see Wallace and Ladmo. I remember how the park seemed magical when I visited it in its later days. Sad that's gone, especially since I cannot take my children there. Alas, perhaps the parks name sealed its fate from the beginning. Perhaps Legend City was destined to end as only a legend. May the legend live on. Thanks for the great website!

Comments: I took my late wife to Legend City when we first came
to Phoenix in 1973. It was open in the summer and closed for
the school year.I always thought that that was a mistake.
It should have been open every weekend all year long.
that would have given High school and collage aged
people a place to date.
The summer was to hot even at night.So the park never got the attendance that it could gotten in
a place like L.A.
I hope the next someone wants to build an amusement
park in Arizona that they enclose it like the one at
Mall Of America. So we can enjoy it year around.

There was a hottie lots of them actually college girl from ASU who drove a VW convertible. She seemed so old then but now... ASU students look like babys. Of course when you're 51 a lot of people look young.

Comments: In 1969 a friend of mine was employed at LC as a night security guard. His hours began AFTER the park was closed. I remember accompanying him on his rounds and being truly spooked - it was DARK and we were the only people inside the park. I also admired his courage, because most nights he was canvassing the entire property...alone. BOO!

Comments: I can't begin to tell you of all the memories that I have of Legend City. I've been to Disneyland and Magic Mountain, but neither of them hold the place in my heart that Legend City does. It truly was a unique place. Being a native, I always ask people if they remember Legend City and the answer is usually no...what a shame. It had atmosphere and a feeling all on it's own. There will never be anything quite like it.

I grew up in Phoenix and worked at Legend City for about 2 years while in high school. I have some great memories of the place. I worked various games -basketball toss, milk bottle toss, etc.. I enjoyed seeing all the people who would come through the park, especially the good looking girls! I had not seen a photo of Legend City since I left the area in 1976.

Comments: What a neat place to visit, but, especially to work for. I began my short venture in spring of 1974 as carpentry foreman. Horst Bruener was the 'wheel' and we worked some 100 plus hour weeks in 100 plus temps each day to get the park reopened for the summer of 1974. It was a blast. Worked through shutdown and helped in security after closing, as there was a fair share of vandalism. Joe Niemann

Comments: Thank you for the website of Legend City. What memories.
I am 50 years old and I live in Oregon now, but I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. When the amusement park opened it was one of the best things in my life. I had many, many fun times there. I had forgot some of the attractions until I saw the web site. I lived on the west side of Phoenix so it was always a real tough job to get a parent to drop us off and pick us up at midnight on a Friday or Saturday night. It was at least an hour drive away. But we probably got to go about 1 time a month.
My parents were friends with a lot of people at KPHO at the time. They were even members of the Phoenix Press Club. I remember KPHO and Wallace and Ladmo's connection with Legend City. I found Wallace on myspace.com about a year ago. He has a couple of websites. I believe he is in his 80's?, but still a real nice guy.
When I got a little older, 16 or so, my best friend and I worked there. I worked on the kiddy rides until my last day I worked at the golf course. Good times, good fun.
Thanks again for placing the website out there.

Comments: Oh my gosh! What memories this has brought back. I remember the Condello band, Wallace and Ladmo, the rides and most of all the excitement of going for the first time to LEGEND CITY. This was a HUGE treat for me as I lived out in Litchfield Park and going to an amusement park with friends and hanging out.Thanks so much for having this site and bringing my childhood back to me. What a treat. Melody Manley Neely

Comments: I have so many fond memories of Legend City I can't sort them all out. Mom use to take all us kids-neighborhood kids too, and drop us all off and we would spend the entire day their. I never wanted to go home. I was born in the right year-1957 to enjoy the heyday of the park. I even got a little moved looking at the pictures on your site-how we all looked at that time, before Phoenix got so big and urban. Thank you for the memories.

I visited big surf, then I thought I'd visit legend city. I was saddened to learn it had closed. I'm 45 so I grew up at legend city.
I have a lot of found memories, It was such a unique amusement park.
I absolutely loved bringing my pistol
and shootin' at all them dang indians!
And panning for gold, well, I thought I'd made a fortune.
Being a girl, it sure was fun being a tom-boy all summer long. It was truely a delight.

Comments: I was born and raised in Arizona and went to Legend City often. One night about 8 of us teens hopped over the fence into the park, of course not my idea. Well i was 13 and with a really cute boy that I liked. We went on several rides than it began to rain and we duck under a cowboy style building with a roof overhang. It was 1973 and there that i had my first kiss with this boy who later I married, had 3 wonderful children and have lived happily ever since that day! We miss those days. Thank you for this site to bring them back. Toni Clifford

Comments: Wonderful Website!
Thanks for the memories. It is so much fun to look over all the photos and I especially enjoyed the Wallace and Ladmo stuff.
I was fortunate to meet Pat McMahon at a dinner a few months ago. He was the MC for the evening. Afterwards, I saw him standing near his table and I couldn't resist going over to meet him. He must get this all the time--a guy in his forties or so, walking up to him with a Hey-it's-Gerald! look in his eyes, feeling like he's 10 again. I had no idea what I wanted to say to him. I just wanted to shake his hand and tell him what a fan I am. I really didn't want to bother him. If he was at all bothered by my presence, he didn't let on. He was warm and friendly and talked for several moments with me and my wife. He actually drove the conversation. Truly, this was a moment I will not forget. It was a great gift to meet this Arizona legend.

It was OUR cheesy! I have nothing but fond memories of spending a whole day there with friends. An end to an era, but the web site is great!!! Thank you!

Comments: Terrific site, thank you for the memories! I was real young and only got to go one time when I got to Arizon. With all the fun that day back in 1978 I remember that we were in the car ready to go into the park and the front of the car has rain drops and the back didn't.. strange things that stick in your head... thank again for this sight..

Comments: Oh yes I remember-- the super hot Phoenix summer nights feeling like you're standing behind a jet engine at Sky Harbor, even at 11 PM. The waves of heat shimmering off the asphalt and concrete walkways of LC. The sweat, the evaporating and steamy lagoon, praying for just a slight breeze...but, all this suffering didn't matter. LC was the coolest place in the world for a 9 year-old. Cutoffs, flip flops and air conditioned eateries and saloons with ice cream and Pepsi's were the saviors from the heat. That and the very cool rides, especially the Dutchman's Mine. I still have fond dreams about LC and if it were still there would gladly drop everything, take a step back in time, and go-- many times over. Thank you, thank you for keeping LC alive, if only in the virtual world. East High, class of '72.

Comments: As a child growing up here, I was an avid fan of Legend City and visited many times in the '60s and '70s. I even had the golden opportunities to perform in a band on stage with Wallace and Ladmo on the floating dock stage in 1977, perform at Compton Terrace in 1980, and my older sister was a waitress at the Golden Palace saloon one summer in the mid-60s, and was a good friend of Vonda Kay Van Dyke. Thanks for the memories! James Stellhorn, local musician from the Mike Condello era.

Comments: Thank you for creating such a wonderful website! I loved everything about Legend City and was really sad to see it die. It wasn't Disneyland, but it was close enough for me. I'll never forget all the awesome memories I've had at Legend City. This excellent website really takes me back.

Comments: I practically grew up at Legend City! We moved to AZ in 1973 when I was 7 years old and going to LC was a real treat. I didn't even care about the summer heat, LC was the place to be! Plus, the Wax Museum next door - that was cool, too! Anybody remember that?

Comments: Not much on my mind lately. Basically not much notable happening to speak of. Eh. I've just been letting everything happen without me. I can't be bothered with anything lately, but I don't care.,

Comments: My grandparents came to Arizona in the late 1800s and my grandchildren are now 4th generation Arizonans - My mother's family used to own the land where Tower Plaza is today - about 32nd st-40th st and Thomas to Oak. I grew up on a dairy farm in Tempe and have many good memories of those days also.
I worked at Legend City from about 71-72 - So many good memories - I wish I could get a reunion together of past employees of LC - we used to have great floats down the river on our day's off and even had a trip to Rocky Point as a group - I worked in the Mexican Village restaurant and several of the other eateries. So much fun to work where you actually liked to go.....
Any employees from around that time - email me - Maureen -Painter- Spencer mspencer79atcox.net

Comments: I just heard about this site tonight and had to rush home to see it. A truckload of memories came back...what a great site. Phoenix was a great place to grow up in the 70's and 80's. Thank you for the website.

Comments: Wow! Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory for me. I've told friends about Legend City and how much fun it was for me in the 60's and now I can show them this website.
The times I went I can remember that one of the times was for Ladmo's birthday party and a show in the Golden Palace Saloon with Wallace, Ladmo and of course Gerald. Boy, were those times fun! And hot too! For some reason the heat was never a problem as long as you didn't happen to sit on a bench that had been blazing in the sun for hours.
