retrofitted the existing building to allow for Sally’s installation of the components and custom finishes. Ridership capacity exceeds 500 people per hour for the two-minute, 40-second ride experience. Creative and technical work began in the summer of 2019, and phased fabrication, construction, renovation, and installation ran from October 2019 into June 2020, with some calendar adjustments incorporated to adhere to pandemic-related restrictions. “Construction went very smoothly,” Gainer recalls.


“Our carpenters, electricians, IT guys, and contractors are used to working on compressed schedules and in harsh winter conditions to get things done right during our off-season from January into May. Sally Dark Rides provided us with some detailed plans and timelines to help keep us on track. There was some juggling and staggering of schedules that had to be done, and some challenges with suppliers and service providers, due to COVID-19 restrictions on people working together, but we co-ordinated closely with state government officials to work within the appropriate guidelines for everyone’s safety. We were fortunate that our ride track and vehicles were complete and packaged for shipping from Italy just before that country became a real hotspot for the virus back in March.”


Great collaboration The result? Despite a pandemic-ravaged summer, guest attendance has been noteworthy. “The new Great Humbug Adventure and the new Polar Paradise section of our water park are two major capital projects for a park our size, and both opened in 2020,” Gainer offers. “This is a tough year to try

to assess any quantitative impacts on the business – we’ve been selling out our park pretty much daily throughout the summer, but we’re limited by state guidelines to only 25% of capacity so it’s hard to know just how much of a draw these might be when we can welcome larger numbers of guests. There’s no question a ride of this quality just adds to our reputation as one of the country’s premier small parks, and our guests have been thrilled with it.” “We asked Sally if they’d be able to help us take our


storyline, and our Humbug creatures, and our existing building, and use their own expertise, and industry contacts, and creative team to make an old favorite here into an amazing new ride,” Gainer details. “They let us know what they could do, and gave us a very clear technical plan of what we needed to do, so they could deliver what we wanted. They were on time all the time, and really responsive to any questions or adjustments that needed to be addressed. It was a great collaboration with them.” “With over 40 animatronic figures,” says Lauren


Weaver of Sally Corp., “state-of-the-art UV lighting, and animated scene lighting, interactive targets, and much more, The Great Humbug Adventure is sure to put anyone in the Christmas spirit, even old Scrooge himself!” Santa’s Village, family owned and operated since its


opening in 1953, also opened a major new addition to its water park area within the park in 2020. The new Polar Paradise section was supplied and installed throughout 2019 by White Water West, and includes over 9,000 square feet of water area, with small slides and numerous spray features.
