Thanks for all that you guys do. It's got to take a great deal of time and dedication to pull this stuff together. Then to keep doing it for a decade is extraordinary.

Congratulations, I don't think there is another site out there that has this much information about a theme park as this one and this site is also one of my favorite websites to visit.

I remember back in 2010 I saw a Great Adventure Website and kept viewing it and then joined the forums 6 years later ;). Congrats!

To sound like a total jerk, Can there be historical tours of the park too?

I'd love to do them, but I live 1000 miles away now. We may try to organize something in the future though. 

 

I can't believe it's been 10 years...it's been 13 years since I launched my initial site which then branched off to become this. I think there's still a couple of our oldest spotlights with the old "gahistory.amusementpics.com" watermarks on them from before GreatAdventureHistory launched.

Oh, you never know!  :P

 

Thanks everyone for your very kind comments.  Obviously this site is something we enjoy so keeping it going won't be an issue.  We have so much more to share and to fine tune that it should keep us busy for years to come.  I know I am excited!

I believe that photo is testing the ride after it was closed from the accident. The new orange restraints with the big handles indicate that it was one of the last seasons it ran.

Even though I don't post as often as I used to, I still follow the site on a very religious basis.

 

It still feels like yesterday that GAH used to be a little page on AmusementPics.

 

Really looking forward to all the new features!

Hey everyone!

 

I think I've posted once a while back.

 

ANYWAYS!

 

I've had a great time the past 3 days reading the ride spotlights and really think it's quite amazing to read about some of the ride's locations and histories around the park. 

 

Really well done!

I agree - I wish I had found this site years ago - it blows me away with all the amazing information and photos from the past.
