Looking for old Raging Bull photos including original sign

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby CD5 on August 14th, 2019, 6:53 am
I’m writing a story for Coaster101.com about Raging Bull turning 20 this year. Does anyone have a photo of the coaster’s original sign? (any other old photos would be much appreciated!)

Of course, you’ll receive full credit in the story if your photos are used.

Completely forgot about this old sign. It's cool to see it again.

Why did they change the sign? I think the original was way better.

They did that in 2009, to make it "Stand out" more

The old sign certainly had more character.

Yeah I guess the new one "pops" more but it's a little garish and plain. The original sign blended in better and was much more dynamic.

Well, Roaring Rapids used to look like this, and it doesn't anymore.

Just a weird thing, but Great America's Superman Sign looks like this:

It's like Six Flags Over Georgia is Superman as a younger adult: (This is a youtube video, but you see the sign within 30 seconds)

In my opinion for Raging Bull, the sign they had before was awesome with the purple bull in the middle. In my opinion, the sign they have now is just trash.
