I’m sure most of us have fond memories of amusement parks, whether it be at the Happiest Place on Earth, school field trips to Camden Park, or thrilling visits to Cedar Point or Kings Island. Recently, my brother and fellow Mid-American Culture contributor Chase introduced me to a YouTube channel that produces videos about various amusement park attractions that are no longer in operation, or cease to exist entirely. That channel is called Defunctland, ran by Kevin Perjurer, and I’ve been watching tons of those videos lately, so I thought I’d share some of them with you all today.

Question: What is the first YouTube video you remember watching?
For me, that video was “The Ultimate Showdown”. This video tells a story. Actually, it tells an epic story. It is story of conflict. It is a story of good vs. evil. But above all else, it is a story of triumph. Until recently, it had been years since I had seen this monumental video. Once I was reminded of its greatness, I immediately knew I had to share it with the Mid-American Culture readers. Given the overall lack of time I have had to craft an article for this week, I deemed it to be the perfect time. So please, enjoy the greatness that is “The Ultimate Showdown.”
I genuinely hope that one day, historians will find this video and use it as evidence of what our then ancient culture was like. Never forget those lost in the great battle.
Thanks for checking out my post this week. See you next Wednesday!
