SFFT really should convert Pandy's old photo shack into a gift shop or a sanck bar, if I were the GM SFFT I would do that!

That's not a very well traveled area, so I can understand why they woldn't convert it.

Yes it is only the way out of Pandemonium. And after a ride of Pandemonium I am not hungry... But their is a full size Johnny Rockets up the stairs so there is no need!

But if there is a new attraction by the Go Karts then they could then converted it, but not likely to happen!

^ I would much see the on-ride cameras came back to Pandy so the shack isn't SBNO for long and people could buy a video (DVD) or still photo of their ride and some other ride branded merchandise as well.

I never understood the on-ride DVDs. The on-ride photos are cool, but I'm not going to sit around watching videos of me riding a roller coaster years later. They were also fairly pricy.

The park has plenty of souvenir shops. If they thought they could make decent money off that shop, it would be open...

I could just see Pandemonium's old photo shack just being converted to a game stand like the former Tony Hawk gift Shop by it, but with no claw machines!

That Sea World/ Fiesta Texas sign was funny. I saw the picture and thought "did they move Sea World, or am I going crazy?" lol I knew it was pretty far from SFFT.

^ I was wondering if people will notice that! But their is a sign in the background that defeats the purpose of the joke! It is the I-35 sign and I-35 doesn't go to either park!

Is the second sign still I-35, or is that one on 1604?
