The history of the hottest, most ill-advised theme park ever made: The Wooz

quote [ Throughout 1988, hype had been building for the new theme park. The giant maze, right off I-80 in Vacaville, promised an experience never-before-seen in America ]

And indeed they got the Woz to test the Wooz.

"...they staged a race between pro basketball player Ann Meyers, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (in a pair of delightfully short shorts) and a kid named Jeremy. Meyers finished the task in under two minutes. Woz took eight after he missed the final exit and got turned around."

Presumably, Jeremy is still wandering around in there somewhere.

I remember that. Wasn't in the area, but I definitely read about it somewhere. The observation towers are the key thing to my memory. Maybe a scout magazine? They talked about stuff like that.
