Six Flags Great Adventure?

Shouldn't it be against the rules for all rides, for health reasons? You know, girls have cooties.

ANSWER:  When Time Warner acquired Six Flags Great Adventure they went through the entire property and looked for ways they could improve the theming in the park.  Each and every building and structur

I was thinking the top of an old pay phone, but later for that.

I was thinking maybe the old Skyride backup motors.

 

I thought of that too, but they wouldn't fit in with the purpose no longer needed clue.

 

 

How many cars are on the Giant Wheel? I was also thinking some kind of fixture on the cars, but again, that wouldn't fit into the no longer needed clue.

Things to provide power for the lights that used to be on all of the cars?

 

That's right !!! Congratulations! You guys are good !!!

 

It is a picture of the electronic brush contacts that provided electric to the lights built into the cars of the Giant Wheel. The in-car lights were non-functional by the early 80s but the brush assemblies weren't removed until the wheel was completely dismantled for a major rehab during the winter of 1992-1993.

Question #5

 

Which of the following two statements is true? The main fireworks dock on the Great Lake is .....

1. ... in a fixed position. It was constructed on pilings and does not move.

2. ... a floating dock securely moored in place. It can be moved next to a small stationary dock on the far side of the lake for repairs.

 

Everyone has a 50/50 chance with this one - Fixed or Floating?

I think this is a hard one. My hat's off to you if you can get it!

- It was removed within the last five years.

- It seems like a "back stage" type shot, but anyone could have taken it from this angle.

 

Good Luck !

Hmm...I have two thoughts. If the first one is wrong, I'm going with the second.

 

I think it's the balloon from one of the Main Street shops (I forgot the name)

 

My second guess is the little Apollo like Space Craft outside of Shuttle and Centrifuge
