The end of an era happened on 4-26-84.. fire ripped through Youngstown's legendary amusement park. A sad day indeed in local history. HOT Day and Spring Thing were my favorite memories of Idora. Teenie boppers like Bobby Sheman and David Cassidy in the ball park and bands like Coconut, Left End and even the Raspberries and The James Gang on the mid-way.. And of course there was Amaco Day and all the big company picnics. What great days. Check out some of the memories below.
A lot of scenes from this goofy movie All The Marbles about female wrestlers with Peter Falk were shot at the park.
