|THE FLYING SCOOTER
ig news for Eldridge Park!!!!! We have purchased two new attractions
for the park. First, we are pleased to announce the return of the
Flying Scooter!!!!!! We found a used Scooter ride at a closed
park in Indiana called The Fun Spot. Although not quite the
same as the one we had years ago, this ride is very similar, and
is even a little bigger. See the photo above as it looked at its
original location at The Fun Spot. Also, we located a Pony
Cart Kiddie Ride at the same park. This too is very similar
to one that was located in the old Eldridge Park.
This is very huge for the Park, and is something
that we've talked about for the last few years. We hope to get the
rides up and running as quickly as possible. Ideally, we'd like
to have them both up and running by the Fireworks Night on June
30th. But we will need some help from our volunteers. As noted,
the rides are used. While they are both in good shape, they do need
some cosmetic work.
Anyone interested in helping us out in getting
these rides ready, please let me know. There will basically be cleaning,
scraping, sanding and paint work that needs doing. The more help
we get, the quicker we'll get them up and running. So any help you
can give us is appreciated!!!!! The rides are currently being stored
at ID Booth, Inc. on William St. We will transport them to the Park
once the work is completed.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
