Sylvie Le Taking Hold In The U.S. in the late 1800's amusement parks started taking hold of the U.S. Most amusement parks were built at the end of a trolley line. They usually had picnic areas, dance halls, restaurants, games and a few rides. They were immediately successful! In 1893, amusement parks started to become extremely popular. The World's Colombian Exposition in Chicago introduced the Ferris wheel and the midway. The midway had a wide variety of rides and concessions and largely influenced amusement park design. In 1894, Paul Boynton opened the world's first modern amusement park, Paul Boynton's Water Chutes. It charged admission and used rides to draw people to it. In 1895, he also opened a park at Coney Island. Coney Island was central to the amusement park industry. Once it had three big amusement parks, plus smaller attractions. Over the years, trolley parks expanded, new amusement parks opened and new rides were created. Over 1,500 amusement parks were opened by 1919 in the United States. the beginning of the future Disneyland and more theme parks In the 1950s people started to lose interest as the parks grew older. It was during this time that Disneyland was created. It opened in 1955. Many people doubted it would last long. However, Disneyland was an immediate success. Instead of having a midway, it had themed places. Many people tried, unsuccessfully, to copy Disneyland. In 1961, one company finally succeeded: Six Flags Over Texas. However, as more people grew interested in theme parks, traditional amusement parks started to shut down. The process of making

details to the bubble diagram, making
each ride different and unique, adding
specific details to each ride, and you can start color coding.After that you are done with your bubble model. How to make the rides After you have finished your bubbly
sketch this is the time when you
