In 1906, Abbot Kinney reconstructed the Midway Plaisance on the banks of The Lagoon, now Windward Circle. He brought it here from the Louis & Clark Worlds Fair in St. Louis, which inherited it from the Chicago Worlds Fair. There were a dozen amusements including, The Temple of Mirth, The Chicken House, Streets of Cairo and Darkness & Dawn, a visit to hell based upon Dante's Inferno. It operated until 1908, when it was replaced by the Race Through The Clouds Roller Coaster.
