The Summer of 1985 seemed like the longest ever, as day by day more and more of Paragon disappeared. This is one of the smaller “camel humps” of the Giant Coaster being disassembled so that it could be reborn as The Wild One in Maryland. In its 96 years, 1985 was the only season of operation the roller coaster has missed.
