Saturday - May 7th, 2016
A rather dull and overcast sky gave way to bright sunshine by days-end at Great Adventure. Throughout the park work continued on many of the new for 2016 projects, and some like the SkyBar and new Coca-Cola Refills stand have already opened.
I hope you enjoy these photos of the theme park including the Safari Off Road Adventure!
|New barrier poles are being installed behind the Bugs Bunny planter mound at the entrance to the park.|
|The rainbow logo is back! Woohoo!|
The JOKER was testing throughout the day today. One observation is
that the ride is very quiet (at least without screaming guests).
