  6. Spotlight Requests

    Less this past season we just updated the Fright Fest pages. http://www.greatadventurehistory.com/GAHalloween.htm
  7. Spotlight Requests

    The parking lot trams will be a spotlight because we have a lot of photos of those through the years. Putting something together for the rest of the vehicles is a great idea but I think it will probably be a dedicated album in our galleries versus a spotlight because what we have is an unrelated collection of photos and not so much a chronological story to share about them. Besides, putting them in the galleries would allow members to add comments about the photos which would probably provide for more details on the vehicles than we could write-up. For example, you have listed as one of your interests old farm tractors. Below is a photo of a tractor that was mixed in with a set of GA constriction slides. I am pretty certain it was taken at the park as it was in a sequence of photos at GA with the photos before and after it taken at the park. Are you familiar with this model - age, type of use, etc?
