    • New Yuck! come on what about Trenton Entertainment
    • This is John Smales.  He would carry a guitar and play it and sing songs and make up songs as a clown.  He doesn't have his guitar in this picture.
    • The clowns weren't allowed to ride the rides, but we got away with a lot on the last day of the season.  It was usually a bit cold and almost always a very low number of guests.  The last day of the season was always a fun day.  I enjoyed five seasons as Juggles the Clown at Great Adventure (from 1981 to 1985) and I loved every day performing at the park.
    • This guest was born the same year I began working as a clown (1981) at Great Adventure.  He lived very close to the park and his parents brought him to the park often.  After a while we got to know him very well.  He was a hyperactive kid and he would play with the clown and run around with us a lot.  It was funny to see full-size adult clowns playing with this very little kid.  We were always glad to see Michael at the park.
    • Cool shot of the four of us each juggling four clubs.  A funny story about Lucky the clown was that he seemed to be very accident-prone.  One time he was riding a 6-foot unicycle and he backed into a 5-foot tall iron gate.  He fell over the gate onto grass and wasn't injured.  He was willing to try anything.
