it would be amazing to have custom costumes again for each ride! Having masks for Green Lantern would be so cool, but be dangerous at the same time.

These will be the first of many photos posted to this topic about Employee Uniforms.

Below are the His and Hers version of Great Adventure ride operator's uniforms from 1976. They almost look like pajama tops!

I am happy to say we obtained a bunch of photos of employees in uniforms that we will be sharing in the future. Check out this closeup of the material pattern in the uniforms above. Too cool! I wish I had one of those shirts!

The Rolling Thunder crew and all the employees of the Hernando's Hideway section had area specific uniforms starting in 1979. (See the photo below was taken in 1980.)

The following year the Roaring Rapids crew had ride specific uniforms for that new attraction for 1981. Too bad the trend didn't continue with themed uniforms throughout the park.

^^ On the guy on the right, I wonder if the Batman emblem by his belt is part of the uniform or maybe a keychain with the keys to the Batmobile!

Here's the security uniform. The shirts were tan and the pants and trim were brown.

gallery_2_579_262623.jpg

 

First Season -'74  We wore black pants could hsve been charcoal grey- a short-sleeve white uniform "cop" shirt with shoulder ephaletd , scaloped chest pockets and chest tabs for pinning on a badge and nametag. The hats were like the ones in the photo  above my post, but were very light-weight with NO decoration at all. We wore Orange Operations Jackets at night and in bad weather

No Patches or I D  on the uniform other than the nametag.

 

2nd Season they went to a two tone tan with brown trim light weight Poplin shirt with a generic round G A patch , dark brown polyester pants and a straw hat like the one in the photo. Permanent  Employees  were issued heavier duty Stetson Hats. and long sleeved perma-press uniform shirts with the first real G A Security Patch on the shoulder. Jackets got better also...see my photos

 

BTW- a personal note.  In the photo of the group on the stairs just above  this post of mine, on the bottom row, on the far left is Officer Mike Chueng, You had me identify him in your photo of the radion operator elsewhere on this forum

The first year they had hats and possibly were part of the uniform but they found out shortly after they were uncomfortable, not liked, and would constantly blow off. They still have a few if people want to wear them otherwise the only other hat you can get is the normal six flags hat.

That explains why I haven't really seen people wearing them.
