It will be a long time before they update the street view.

Google Earth fun.

   
- 1989 aerial map. Monorail station can be clearly seen in the top lefthand corner.

   
- 1994 map. Drachen Fire is the biggest new ride in the park

   
- 2003 view. Alpengeist, Apollo's Chariot, and Wild Maus have been added since then. Drachen Fire is gone. Monorail is gone

   
- Wild Maus is gone, but DarKastle took its place.

   
- Oktoberfest expansion + Mach Tower. Verbolten is just a dirt pile at this point.

   
And just for fun. Hurler construction.

I'd say if you haven't gotten Google Earth yet, the historical imagery function is pretty awesome.

The county's parcel view used to have satellite imagery dating beyond the park's construction. It's almost hard to think that the entire developed space the park uses used to be relatively flat woods.

Six years isn't too late to mention this? Tongue Water Country USA has street view from 2009! It's very strange to not see Colossal Curl or Vanish Point towering over the park. Also, look at how different the high dive stage was back then.

Where is Hummel Boy?

Well the Google Earth aerial view for BGW was recently updated to include Tempesto, Cornered, and other minor changes.
