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.
