Unknown ride discovered during our research

Recommended Posts

One of the biggest surprise discoveries we had while compiling information for the book was a little detail in the Kiddie Kingdom aerial photo at the top of page 88.

 

Although it is very hard to see in that image, in the middle of the photo along the top edge is a children's ride that I never knew existed at the park. It is a rocket ship to the moon ride similar to the Astro-Liner at Dutch Wonderland pictured below.

 

The Kiddie Kingdom photo was taken in 1979 and I know the ride was not there in the 1980 season. Anyone know when it was added to the park or remember the ride at GA?

Dutch Wonderlands got their Astro-liner in 1978. Theres is not considered a kids ride. Did Great Adventure have a smaller verson, or did they just put it in the kids section not being a kids ride? Is it not on any map?

I think it's just a sand lot your eyes are playing tricks on unless thered deffinite proof it existed-though I do faintly remember ssomebody aying something about a space ship at GADV-I though they were talking about Alcatraz or The Space Shuttle, but they were deffintely old enough to go to the park at the time the photo was taken? Maybe it was never opened? All I know is were on the watchout for a spaceship :Alien4::Alien4::Alien4:

Wow! That is one hell of a sentence.... It is extra long and there are words in there that I can only guess what they are suppose to be. Please remember to use your spell checker.

 

As far as the Moon Rocket ride, we have a higher dpi color scan of the original and can assure you it was in the park.

Hey Harry, can you post the color version of the pic so we can get a better look at it, black and white one is difficult to see.
