Great Adventure Refurbishing Wheel
Submitted By: ThmPrkCrtc on 2/6/2009 9:15:00 AM
I guess it's not as a cool news as the updates to Superman and the new Diamondback coaster, but hey it's something.

Now, in honor of the ride's 35th anniversary, management has spent the off season refurbishing the "Big Wheel," complete with thousands of new, energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode bulbs. Maintenance crews and electricians are midway through the six-month process of getting the new, improved brighter Ferris wheel ready for the park's April opening.

"It's very common for theme parks to want to preserve their iconic attractions especially if they've become a part of a park's character," said Great Adventure spokeswoman Angel Aristone. "And the Big Wheel is definitely part of our property's character."
I don't know I have a soft spot for big ferris wheels... I don't know they always remind me of that move "The Sandlot." Man.. I love that movie.
