I was just looking at your Website, which I found through Google when I was looking for information/pictures of the old Michigan Drive-in theater on Dix in Southgate. While browsing, I checked out the Amusement Park section. There is one you are missing. It was very small, but I imagine it would go in that category. It was more like a little carnival, but it was a permanent location. (I remember a ferris wheel, tilt-a-whirl, a children’s ride that went on a track with little individual hand cars, and some games. There were probably a few more rides, but I don’t recall them.)
It was on the corner of Pennsylvania, Fort Street, and Trenton Road, in Southgate. There is a auto dealer there now. My parents used to take me there as a child, and my husband remembers it also. It was called Wonderland. I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures.
