THE RIDES OF PALISADES

Old Mill

Description:  The Old Mill featured boats floating through shadowy caverns, and it became a perfect meeting place for romantic couples. Palisades renamed the ride the Tunnel of Love, and amusement parks throughout the country followed suit. The large paddlewheel (center) was the sole source of power for the boats. Its turning moved the water in the canal and the water then caused the boats to gently move throughout the course within the ride.
