    WOW! I was 13 years old when the park opened and I distinctly remember this commercial. In fact, I searched the internet for it about year ago but couldn't find it. Talk about the power of advertising; I remembered almost all of the words. Thanks so much for posting this....it was awesome to relive the newness of "The Greatest Day in my life".

    Perfect!! I remembered the entire song - but could never find the video online... Many great memories as a kid, many fantastic times as an employee for several years! Great Adventure was a unique work experience, and a wonderfully original theme park!

    To the person who provided this commercial, a HUGE THANK YOU!!!

    Wow, you actually got the whole original commercial! There was a shorter 30-second ad which was cut from this footage which ran during '76 as well. Very cool! Many thanks to the person who was able to find this!!! It would be really great if SF would return the "uniqueness" to this wonderful park and continue along the original theme (everything oversized and larger than life etc.!)

    I'd love to see them somehow return to the original logos and modify the lyrics to this original song to fit today's park and use it in today's ads. Today's ads are not "catchy"... they are quickly forgotten. This one, stuck in your head and created excitement and anticipation of a future park visit. The park needs that same kind of magic again and needs to really focus their marketing efforts on families and value.

    I feel bad for the kid wearing the Namath jets jersey.  40 yrs later, the jets still suck.  lol
