Friday - April 3rd, 2015
If I had a dollar for each time it has rained on opening day at Great Adventure over the years, I would be a rich man. Even so, a little water (or at times a lot of water) didn't ruin the fun of being back in the park after a long cold winter. Almost every ride was open and the park looked nice and ready for what will be an EXTRA long season this year! Wishing everyone a fantastic 2015 season, here are some opening day photos.
|Years of prayers have finally been answered.
|Hooray! Guest without bags lanes!
|Aqua Stadium looked sort of ... closed.
|They are facing forward for now.
|How about a Holiday in the Park train ride?
|The Movie Town letters are back.
|A new walkway through the Old Country will be open during peak times primarily during major outings in the picnic grove and Fright Fest.
|I love that the park isn't afraid to use the the words "Great Adventure" or "G.A." instead of just the Six Flags corporate name.
|Inside the aqua stadium looks ok from the air.
|Sitting on the end seat, the Safari Off Road Adventure got me more wet today than Congo Rapids did last season.
|Love this guys growl!
|Construction of El Diablo made some great progress today. Compare these photos to the ones from later in the day below.
|Attitudes had a major off-season remodeling including a new flooring, a redesigned layout, and the removal of some doors and the addition of display windows. It also seems like some neon may be soon installed on the ceiling of the store.
|The Flags tent also received a new floor, the Boardwalk Arcade was expanded, and the red and white tent has all its windows blackened.
|While Fort Independence is shuttered, the sea lions have joined the otters in the Golden Kingdom.
|Tons of neon in the Boardwalk Food Court.
|As mentioned, construction progress was made today on El Diablo.
|Once it stopped raining the Big Wheel opened and a better view of the Old Country walkway could be seen.
|The Musik Express has been removed.
|Some utility work going on here.
