A quick heads-up: after two years of posting every other week, I'm going to reduce my posts to once a month. I still have tons of material from my trips this year, but I want to be sure that I have time to focus on my schoolwork. I hope to post on the second Sunday of every month, so you can look forward to my next post on September 12th!

The Great Escape in Lake George, New York is a small park with a rich history. Debuting as Storytown USA in 1954, it claims to be one of the first theme parks ever opened in the United States. The brainchild of a prominent local man named Charles Wood, the park was renamed "The Great Escape" in 1983 to reflect its expanding offerings, which by that time included a Ghost Town and Jungleland area as well as major rides. Below is the historic heart of the park.

|Classic Pretzel rides like this also make a VERY distinctive "clicking" sound as they turn corners.|
