This is how the area around Racer looked over 35 years ago.  On the left is Zodiac, an Intamin double-arm Ferris Wheel.  It was here from 1975 until 1989.  In the 1990s, the wheel reappeared in Australia's Wonderland Sydney park.  Sadly, that park closed in April 2004, so the big wheel's long life finally seems to be over.

Kings Island replaced Zodiac with Flight Commander, which also was removed in 1995.
