Saturday - April 5, 2003
As is typical with many season openers at Great Adventure, the first day of the 2003 season saw dark skies and rainy weather. Following a season with very little construction, guests to the park in '03 were greeted with several sites under renovations and updates. Here are some photos from opening day 2003 presented in chronological order of our visit.
