Not sure if you caught this last season but when the Wild Safari was incorporated into the theme park, the logo was changed from Great Adventure & Wild Safari to Great Adventure & Safari.

Six Flags Corp page changed their logo on facebook today. So what do you think? It is not much of a change from the previous version. I have to wonder how long it will be before our highway sign at the main entrance is changed, especially since that sign is almost 20 years old.

The decade labels are a bit 'inaccurate' as far as pin-point coverage goes --at least the early ones.

 

The Tiger/Balloon image went with the Englishmen when Hardwicke left the area. in 1977. The employee 'Orange and white jacket' had either the script screened on 'Great Adventure ' name or the sewn on Logo Patch. See my borrowed Operations Jacket in photo..The early ones were flannel lined, the later issue were Fleece-lined--much warmer!!

 

In 1977 When the Texans invaded some of us snagged some of the first issued jackets with the "new" Rainbow Logo.during the '77 winter... It didn't get circulated til the 1978 season opening..but midnight raids on wardrobe outfited those who were present. White and Black were Management colors .

 

Here is a 1975 script jacket- followed by a 1977 rainbow logo-
