I'm sure you thought about it too, "How does one fall off of a gondola?"
When the news broke this weekend about a girl falling off of a ride at Six Flags Great Escape, my follow up question was immediately, "What ride?!" But when the response was, "the gondola" I had a moment of confusion.
Luckily, I've never been to an amusement park where I've been stuck on a ride or anyone got seriously injured but that's always a risk. Thankfully, after this 14 year old girl almost fell off the Sky Ride, Six Flags Great Escape employees acted quickly to minimize damage.
I've lived in the Capital Region my whole life, so most of my best memories are from right here in the 518. I have family in Lake George so any weekend we could, that's where we'd be and more specifically, Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom.
No matter where I am in the building here, my hands are like ice. They say the heats on, but I feel cool air blowing on me at all times.
I'm just ready for Spring. Please, Mother Nature, I'm begging you.
The first sign of it
