ADVENTURE ALLEY - New for 2012!

Recommended Posts

Funtime's SkyFlyer page mentions "Then the customers are treated to a series of ups and downs as they spin backwards and forwards."

 

Backwards? I wonder if the ride can be programmed to spin backwards or if that simply means the rider twist their swing backwards? Their video clip does have a few riders turning around. I am sure this would be much harder with two-person swings, as well as a no-no at the park.

Even with the much shorter Wave Swingers you aren't allowed to twist the swings. GADV used to kick people off their old Wave Swinger for it.

gallery_2_579_663280.jpg this picture lies the workers ive seen are never happy

And there are plenty of good reasons not to be happy while working there,not that it's Six Flags fault,it's just the nature of the theme park business.

It's not like there aren't ANY happy workers. i see plenty of them every time I visit. The Skyway workers, who probably have one of the hardest jobs (if not THE hardest job) in the park, almost always say Hello to me and ask me How I'm doing, and How my visit is going.

Great Adventures employees are ,most of the time, very friendly. Most of Hershey's employees are proably some of the meanest and rudest people I have ever seen anywhere, ever. All of the other parks that I've been to are good, but in my opinion Great Adventure has the best. I know it can be hard to keep up the friendlyness when there is a big crowd, but they still do ok.

Personally, I think there is a distinct difference in the quality and commitment of theme park employees today as opposed to 20 years ago. Even Disney employees do not appear to be as stellar as they once were. I've worked at Great Adventure, Magic Mountain, and Disneyland and, without a doubt, I enjoyed Great Adventure the most. Incidentally, the very first time I worked at GA, it was on the Dream Street Cables. It was hard, but more fun than any other position I worked in the park.

With the area being "revived" I'd love to see a Zamperla Balloon Race themed to the original GAdv balloons replace the remote control cars behind big wheel and a Pirate themed tilt-a whirl for the lakefront where the remote control boats are now

anytime Great adventure adds rides, im all for it. the only problem i have with some of the type of flat rides that they add is, they are never as good as the ones at the boardwalk. GA bumber cars were always slow. when the had the musik express it was slow and didnt go backwards, the scrambler was slow. also, when they added a ton of flat rides yrs ago, they had no one to operate them, and were alwasy closed. i guess we will find out soon.

So I went to the park today for my Rediscovery training and I came across two Deja Vu cars with these logos on it ;)

 

Great Adventure's renewed interest in its history!
