  1. Misc GA Mumblings

    The Looney Tunes figures are primarily from the old Bugs Bunny Fun Factory.
  2. Dancin' on Air at Great Adventure 1985

    It is 32 years later and they still play Rock Lobster at the park! By the way, the little boy at 18:05 in the video is the person who submitted this recording to us. Thanks Michael!
  3. Celebrate! - An Americana Music Hall Show

    I love to hear that the video brought back such fond memories for your Darrell! One of the greatest rewards to me for doing this site is when we hear people say "oh wow, I remember that!" or "until I saw that picture I forgot all about that!". The video came from a bunch of Six Flags shows from the late '70s on an old VHS tape that the park shared with me. I am going to try to get this one professionally transferred in the hopes that they can eliminate the tracking interference. As far as GA, the tape also has a very early version of one of the stage shows from the Bandstand on the Lake. Now that we upgraded our server and forums, we have greater flexibility in sharing larger size files and longer videos. Many more will be added in the future.
  4. 29yrs....  Where did you happen to get the video of Celebrate?

     

    I worked this show and others and would love to connect with someone that might have worked in those times.

     

    Thanks

  5. Dancin' on Air at Great Adventure 1985

    Put on your parachute pants, neon "Frankie Says" t-shirts, and empty 3+ cans of hairspray and enjoy this great video from a 1985 episode of Dancin' on Air filmed at Six Flags Great Adventure! Plenty of footage of the park between all the totally rad dancing! Many thanks to Michael Schiumo for this video!

  8. Celebrate! - An Americana Music Hall Show

    Here is a nice piece of Great Adventure history.... Click below to view a complete video of the very first show performed at the Americana Music Hall (now Showcase Theatre) from 1978. The video quality does have some interference but the audio (and the majority of video) allows us to relive GA's first indoor stage show.

  14. El Toro wins Best Wooden Coaster Golden Ticket 2017

    Has anyone ridden Goliath at Six Flags Great America in IL? Not much is said about this relatively new coaster. Doesn't seem to be on many "must ride" lists.
