Ride On, John.« Go Back Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
The season ended with one of the most beautiful fall days I can remember.
Guests having fun; rides performing beautifully; everyone in good spirits.
It also ended with a very memorable ride.
We invited guests to find Golden Tickets in the park. Just a few years back, we'd use those tickets for the last ride on a big park favorite such as Millennium Force or Maverick.
But we used them for something special - General Manager John Hildebrant's very last ride on Gemini.
We gathered a big group to race. Incoming General Manager Jason McClure in the blue train; John in the red. Who won?
It doesn't really matter.
What matters is, he spent his last public ride as GM with the people that have made his career here an enjoyable one. I'm looking at you.
And here you are:
Thanks for closing your season with us. I know John sends his thanks as well.
If you're in this photo and would like a digital copy, shoot me an email and I'd be happy to send you one.
And finally, our last PointCast of the operating season (there will be more throughout the winter). It's fitting that we close it with John.
