Right now they are running a poll about the reunion and what people would be interested in. If you are an 80's employee, Click Here to take the survey.

There does not seem to be any activity about this reunion? If there is any more info, such as people coming , is the present Management onboard with it? Special deals or events for the old employees? Sure would like to come but if I don't have any more info , I am not sure I want to make the trip and be disappointed?

During the day at the Park is there going to be some meeting place where people can gather? Or is that going to be the next day?

Well we are now at two weeks away and there isn't much activity on this subject? My wife and I plan on visiting and most of my time will be spent at the Safari I hope. We will visit the theme park arena to see the changes and such, I am not a big rider nowdays. I had hoped to see other old employees getting on board but it hasn't happened yet? I really am only makeing the trip to see my old animals and hope there is an old friend or two there too? I do want to meet y'all also, but don't know how or where that will take place? If there was a special place in the park to meet and a certain time, that would help?

OK, I fly up a week from today. Haven't heard from anyone going. The event off site at the campgrounds looks like only the employees from the themepark area are going to be there, so I will most likely past on that. Tom and Harry I really would like to meet y"all at the park that day or on Sat? I am going to be with the Director of the Safari for a tour with him, I hope it lasts most of the day? We will do a walk through of the rest of the park to see the changes, I am not much of a rider anymore but if it is hot will take a dip at HH? Anyway thats about what I have planned, I do intent to go to Seaside Heights to see how much that place has changed too?

Sorry for the delay Gary, I was just trying to figure some things out timing wise. As for me, I have to work during the day on Friday but I can meet up with you at the park Friday evening. Hopefully if your Safari tour is earlier in the day, that would work for you. It would be interesting to do an historic park walk through and hear your recollection of the park's early days and stories about the Safari!

The pleasure was mine Harry. Like I told you, I am proud of what all of you are doing to promote Great Adventure. I spoke to Dr Rives the next day and told him about what you are doing, and him and alot of the Wardens are interested in seeing more History of the park. Quite a few questions were answered that I wanted to know and I was asked tons of questions by both sides, Safari and theme park. I would hope that Management would look harder at what has worked in the past, and as they add to the future things would impact both sides of the park. It is an extremely unusual type amusement park and I hope it stays open forever. I have worked at four such parks and GA is the only survivor. Best to all!
