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.

attraction was the Dutchman's Shack where everything was slanted. I wish Legend

90s. Thanks for the memories.

Comments: Back in the summer of 1966, I was the Music Director of
KRUX and we helped to promote the Smash Back to School Blast that was held at
Legend City.  Lesley Gore, who wrote and recorded It's My Party was our
headliner.  She arrived at Sky Harbor.  In front of the terminal were a couple
of vehicles and a Limo for her.  My car was there too.  A brand new 1966 Bright
Yellow Corvette.  I parked my car behind the limo there in the front of the
terminal.  When she came out, she was told the Limo was for her.  It didn't take
long for her to say, I will go in that car!  Pointing at my corvette.  No one
argued with her.  I didn't mind a bit.  So in Lesley Gore got into the passenger
seat with KRUX Good Guy Norm Seeley driving her out to Legend City.  I don't
know how she got around after the show, but from that day forward, my car was
referred to as The Lesley Gore Vette. -- Norm Seeley (former Music Director KRUX
1966)

Comments: JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE PHOTOS AND MEMORIES BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE. I DO THINK ABOUT LEGEND CITY FROM TIME TO TIME AND I USE TO FREQUENT THERE AS A CHILD. I AM AN ARIZONA NATIVE AND THE SEVENTIES WERE THE BULK OF MY YEARS THERE. I REMEMBER SEEING ROCK CONCERTS AT THE AMPHITHEATER AND SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE OF THE WALLACE AND LADMO SHOW. IT WAS A SAD DAY TO SEE IT GO AFTER MY NEW SON WAS ONLY ONE YEAR OLD AND HE NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY IT.

THANK YOU AGAIN, JIM K.

Comments: Legend City holds a lot of great childhood memories for me -now 58 yrs old. I hated to see it torn down. I remember a promotion one time that anyone whose hair was longer than Alice Cooper's could get in free. I don't think anyone did.

Date: 4/8/2009   Time: 6:37:38 PM
Comments: I was born at Good Samaritin hospital. Lived in Scottsdale as a baby.We moved to paradise valley soon after. My folks moved us to San Diego in 1968. I had forgotten about Legend City until I googled Wallace and Ladmo. This was a link. I have some vague memories of the park because I was so young. But I remember The Lost Dutchman mine and just the feeling of de javu. Same with old Tucson. thanks, wish I could be of more help. Cool memory though, thanks!
Date: 3/27/2009   Time: 9:44:00 AM
Comments: What a great site ! I know so many people that when you mention Legend City have no idea what I am talking about. I have very fond memories of going there with my dad when I spent weekends with him. Am so glad I have these memories and this site reminded me of alot of them. Thanks to who ever put this site together, great job !
Date: 3/21/2009   Time: 10:15:21 PM
Comments: Wow,
this certainly brought me back to my childhood! I spent many weekends hanging
out at Legend City with my best friend David. This park had huge influences on
our lives as it kept us out of a lot of trouble. I can remember riding the Lost
Dutchman Mine ride over and over again. I remember those days when Wallace and
Ladmo would perform and they would have free admission in addition to the
possibility of winning a prize! That was the true Phoenix and this site should
be preserved forever. Thank you so much for taking me back to found memories!

Comments: Cool. Was peeking at the wikipedia Wallace and Ladmo pages and followed the Legend City link here. Thanks for the web site. I was lucky enough to get to Legend City once to see Wallace and Ladmo. What a great time!

Comments: What fun. Randy and Leslie, AKA Ronnie, pretty much said it all. As I was never banned from the park as Leslie was, I have very fond memories. Thanks for the site. Terry
Date: 3/3/2009   Time: 9:01:22 PM
Comments: They should have NEVER torn this down. What a shame.
Date: 3/3/2009   Time: 2:53:07 PM
Comments: WOW! Amazing web site! How unique so much is preserved and so many lives touched by Legend City. Amazing memories. Dad transported us from rural Iowa to build and work at Legend City in the early 60s. Legend City was my brothers my sister and my home away from home for several years. Incredible place to be a teen in the 60s. What a great place to grow! I would also like to apologize to anyone whos River Ride I may have ruined by memorizing the spiel and rudely saying the spiel before the River Boat Captain. You may find comfort in knowing that Dad banned me from the River Ride for 2 weeks. My partner in crime and best friend, Nancy Tompkins, where are you? Find me at lesliekosta comcast.net. But know you remember me as Ronnie Schenck.
Date: 3/2/2009   Time: 9:20:44 PM
Comments: This is a walk down memory lane for an old 59 year old kid from Iowa. My dad and family moved to Arizona in 1961 and help build and run Legend City until the fall of 1964. It was sad to see such a fine place have the financial problems it did but we had no idea it remained in operation until 1983. During the building I remember helping with the cement work for the pads the rides sat on. I was only 12 or 13 at the time but dad took me to work a few times. Later after the park opened, I went there many times and knew almost every inch of the place. My father was the maintenance foreman after the place opened and later become Rides Manager. He has lots of good memories of the place and the people who worked there including lots of kids from ASU. Many of the rides for the park came from a Kiddy Land Park in Kansas City, Missouri. At an even younger age I went to Kansas City a few times and rode those rides before they were moved to Legend City. I'm sure that many of the folks who visited the Park back in those Early days loved it and the people that worked there loved it too. They were exciting times and deserve the time and effort you have put into this web site. Thanks, Randy Schenck and father, Ron Schenck

Comments: From about spring 1971 till the end of summer 1973, I and a couple of my friends Steve and Alford were stunt men who trained under Ron Nix.
This site sure has taken me back there!
We used to have a gunfight at the town in the back of the lot and then shoot outs on the train. Sometimes we would stack tumbleweeds on the tracks and set fire to them so we could rob the payroll on the train.
Those were times I truly miss and your site took me back there, THANKS!
I will always miss Legend City!! WHAT A LOSS!

Comments: When I was in 9th grade, my friends and I washed cars one Saturday at a local gas station to get enough money to go to Legend City Amusement Park. We had a blast and this was to be 1 of the only times I was able to go before it closed up. I am now 45 years old and still remember that event in my life.
Date: 2/6/2009   Time: 7:25:40 PM
Comments: Legend City is solely responsible for my fear of heights!!! I got stuck at the top of the Ferris wheel in 1972 when I was just 6...the wind was blowing and it was almost dusk. Havent gotten on a FW since. Still, I wouldn't trade my memories of this place for anything!!!! I remember seeing so many concerts there in the early 80's...the Go Go's, AC DC, Def Lepard. LC is the source for so many happy memories from both my childhood and my teen years!!! It is only too bad that it wasn't around for my daughter to enjoy and to create memories for herself! LC...you are sorely missed!!!
Date: 2/6/2009   Time: 6:56:55 PM

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!
Date: 10/22/2008   Time: 8:03:06 PM
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.
Sincerely,

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!
If only we as a Valley could have had the forethought to support it more and leep it, the Dity would be competeing with Disney Now!

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.

Comments: My family was stationed at Luke Air Force Bace in 1971-1972. My father took us there on family trips often. I have very fond memories of Legend City. I found this website after doing many searches. I shared it with my family.

Comments: I knew I had visited a theme park in Az but I had very little memory of it. I can't remember the year but it had to have been pretty close to the parks final year. 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.

Comments: I worked at Legend City back in 1973, first inside the park picking up trash with a broom and a pan. The standing joke was How's business The reply picking up!

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.
