Soon after there was little left of the Old Chicago Fairgrounds.  All of the rides were auctioned off and all that was left, besides the fiberglass acoustic squares that were hung from the ceiling to reduce Old Chicago's noise problem, was a big empty space where so many great memories were made.

In the center of this photo is all that was left of the Old Chicago Log Race.  They took everything ,even its tunnel.  In the distance behind the Log Race is the platform that housed the Old Chicago Fun Factory.  To the right of that are the ramps that took you from the mall down into the Fairgrounds.

The Chicago Loop ended up going to the Alabama  State Fairgrounds before it finally ended up at Canobie Lake Park in New Hampshire where it is now known as the Canobie Cannonball.  The Log Flume was sold to Fair Park in Dallas, TX.  The rest of the rides ended up at various parks and traveling fairs.
