@Toni: I DO remember the PA playing Bad Girls! (Kinda remember Emmy Lou the emu tearing around the park to that music.) That song always makes me remember that photo booth playing a continuous loop of Benny Benson saying "...and you forgot your camera..." (always wanted to secretly unplug that thing).

I went to Benson's serveral time as a young child, we took our daughter there when she was 5 yrs old in the early 80's. So sad, great memories!!!

Okay, every time I hear Donna Summers "on the radio" I think of Bensons. Am I the only one who remembers in the early 80's, before the park would open in the morning, Bad Girls or Hot Stuff would blast over the PA system? Memories.

Can you ride bikes thru Bensons?
Chelsea May 12, 2012 18:49:18 (EDT)
Is there by chance a map of the area that shows trails?

Does anyone remember ... when visiting the Old Woman of the Shoe if a cast member portrayed the Old Woman or if there was a mannequin at the display?

Hi Lee, I've got one of the frogboats and have been working to restore it. The steering mechanism has been replaced with all stainless steel so it will never rust again. I've gotten the fiberglass and resin to do the rest of the cosmetic work but I just can't find the time. I don't know how many of these are out there but just the couple times I've moved it around in the back of my truck I've gotten many comments and questions about it.Quite a few people have even recognized it as one of the former Bensons rides. It's a real conversation piece.Send me a message and we'll talk...

I am looking for a frog boat that was used in Swan lake. if you have one I would love to purchase it. Thanks Lee

Wow! I didn't realize the park had reopened. Took my daughter there right before it closed back in the mid-80's. I remember my Dad talking about how he used to swim after watermoccasins and sold them to Benson's for movie money when he was a kid. That had to have been right around when they first opened. I will be planning on taking my granddaughters there when the sun comes back out!
