Hello, I am new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone on here might have pictures from 1986 when Cypress Gardens hosted a monster truck water race. The trucks featured were all owned by David Spiker and consisted of Lil All American, Eagle and All American. The race was filmed and featured on the TV speical "Return of the Monster Trucks" which aired that summer. Thanks.

Sean might know where there's some photos of that race... Either way, that's pretty awesome!

Thanks Greg, how would I get ahold of Sean to find out if he does? Here are a few screen caps from the TV the race was featured on.

He pops in once in awhile. Sent some good links in some other threads with CG photos.

Good link with a lot of classic CG photos, but I wasn't able to find any of the truck race.

Thanks again Greg! Is the big white mansion still on the grounds there do you know? Was just kinda wondering if that area of Cypress Gardens looks much the same as it did before Legoland came in.

Yes, the Mansion is still there as are the grounds, the ski show (and theaters), the town, and the Botanical Gardens. It's pretty much the same as before. Legoland built all the rides on the other 1/2 of the park. (About the only thing that's not still there are the animal exhibits.)

Here's a recent shot of the Mansion:


And some shots of the grounds from the Island in the Sky.

You might want to try asking your question at the Monster Mayhem website. After you click on the link, try registering and then asking for more pictures on the site's forum. Below is a picture someone had posted there. Hope this helps.

That looked like it would have been an awesome race. Its a Pity Monster Truck races aren't what they used to be. Now its mostly one set of cars in a stadium. The outside races where they would change things up a bit ( Races courses that included part of a superspeedway, Water Races, Mud pits, etc) seemed to have vanished.

Let's hope that new MSAP can pull off one of the greatest homecomings Panama City Beach ever had! The Starliner shall rise again!

Just thought I would bump this up and see if anything else surfaces.
