Work where you play at one of New York's most popular summer destinations.

I received an email notification the other day from an amusement park we all know and love, and I was like wow! Pretty cool. I'm currently not looking for a job, but if in fact I was, I could see this being a cool opportunity.

Lake George has always been a popular vacation destination for many over the years. In fact, the lake itself has previously been voted as the most beautiful lake in the U.S. according to some sources. As a child growing up in the Hudson Valley area, visits to Lake George in New York's Adirondack region were always special. Jumping in the station wagon with the family and taking the drive North on the thruway brings back fond memories.

Whether we were walking the Lake George village, stopping in the souvenir shops, or visiting Great Escape for a day of fun on the rides, it was always memorable. I remember visiting Great Escape long before the name change when it was known as Storytown U.S.A., a Mother Goose fairy tale theme park.

Now I'm not sure if Six Flags Great Escape was assuming that I'm looking for a new job, or I simply got the e-mail from being on a mailing list as a previous season pass holder (likely the latter), but I could definitely see it being super cool working at Great Escape!

New Thrill Ride Being Built At The Great Escape In Lake George

Last August, the Great Escape in Lake George announced that they'd be retiring the Alpine Bobsled Ride to make way for their newest thrill-coaster called "The Bobcat".
This week, we found incredible aerial shots taken from Adirondack Drone that show workers assembling this awesome-looking wooden coaster, and you can see the pics in a gallery of the photos below.
