WoW! Is the Tidal Wave of Turn of the Century/Demon even there anymore? I haven't been since 1985. Comment posted by cskwiatkowski on Sunday, February 15th 2009 at 8:10pm.
If you didn't mind sitting in one of the middle seats you could ride the Tidal Wave all day long if you wanted to. The Demon was a lot of fun to always ended the night with a ride on it. One thing about the Demon is that I never rode it when all of the lights in the tunnel and the water spray was working. Comment posted by hpkid on Sunday, February 15th 2009 at 9:33pm.
Did they get William Dozier to do the VO? It sounds like him in his "Desmond Doomsday" mode. Comment posted by Bertonator on Friday, June 26th 2009 at 10:21pm.

Roy Leonard was a great Chicago media personality. He was the perfect person to replace Frazier Thomas on Family Classics back in the 80s. I really enjoyed his work over the years. He will be missed. RIP Roy Leonard!!
Very sorry to hear about Roy's passing. He had a daily talk show in the 1970's where he interviewed actors and musicians that were passing through. He did an interview with some of the members of the band Chicago over one Thanksgiving weekend that I remember well. He also did a show for WGN radio, I think, a few years back. My condolences to his family.
