Saturday - April 6th, 2019
The 2019 season is here and Great Adventure opened up its gates for its 46th time! Beautiful weather and people looking to shake off the winter doldrums brought a pretty impressive crowd to the park. The first think to notice driving in was the addition of the new solar panels both covering both Hurricane Harbors parking lot and the overflow lots between the main lot and the entrance roadway. Inside the park, fresh paint and numerous refurbishment projects greeted park patrons, the largest of which was the on-going installation of the Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth ride. Things are looking great for another fun season at the park!
