Chi-Town - Scott Eddy has passed away.

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby CoasterDave316 on January 19th, 2017, 6:38 pm
Today I received word that Scott Eddy, Chi-Town as he was known on these forums and other coaster forums, passed away.

Scott was one of the first members, moderators and founders of this web-site. Most importantly though, he was a great person and a great friend throughout the years.

I have so many memories going through my head right now it is hard to write about at this moment, he will be missed greatly!
Go Bulls!

Sad news. Very briefly ran into Chitown once at the park a long time ago (I want to say the year Superman was new, it may or may not have been the Coasterbuzz event). Chitown is one of the very first names I can remember from when I discovered this hobby exists online (again, Coasterbuzz), so when I finally registered at SFGAmworld, I recall being surprised and glad to see he was a moderator here too. My condolences to his family and friends- RIP Scott

Oh man, I'm sorry Dave. I've read a lot of the early posts on this forum and Scott is a really funny guy, he'll surely be missed. I'll always remember him as the only mod who's locked a topic I made :lol: Condolences to his family and friends.

R.I.P.

Btw, I'm sure he would love if Joker was dedicated to him. (I think a member of the Carowinds forum got his name on a piece of Fury track as he died a few months before it opened)

I honestly don't think I ever met him or anybody else on here. Unless I knew them already that is.
Check out my Coaster vids

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P
