About the Ride Info Box

Convoy is a children's ride located next to the Frantic Freeway. It opened around 1989.

Convoy was originally located on Dragon Island in the building that now houses the queue. When the Dragon opened, it was moved to its current location.

In 2017, the "Sinclair" gas station sign was replaced with one that read "Convoy Truck'in" (with the apostrophe in that location). The ride previously didn't have a sign showing the name.

NOTE: This is another example of a ride that relocated. The Dragon replaced the original Convoy location, so it's really Haunted House -> Convoy -> Dragon. But, Convoy is still here. Much like the moving of Chicken Shack, I think we need two pages for Convoy -- one for the old location and one for the new. A similar thing happened with the Wrangler/Scambler, but there were a few years in between and they each had different names so it was easy to see using two pages for that. Thoughts?
