Take Me Back: Old 'Old Chicago' Radio Ad

What do you remember most about Old Chicago?

Check out this Old Chicago Amusement Park advertisement we found on YouTube.

Old Chicago was built in 1975 and for six years was one of Bolingbrook's biggest attractions during the late 1970s until it was closed in 1981. 

Eventually, in 1986 the building was shut down to make way for more business development. 

What are your memories of Old Chicago?

I've heard so much about this place since moving into Bolingbrook. So sad I've never gotten to experience it.

Just a shame it was so far ahead of its time -- and the craftsmanship in those storefronts on the mall beats anything out there today !!
