Here's your chance to look some more at Gillian's Wonderland Pier.
Overhead view of Philadelphia Toboggan Company #75. Gives you a chance to see the cabling holding the top of the ride to the center pole.
Overhead view of the Trabant on Gillian's Wonderland Pier's main midway. In the far background you can also see the bumper cars.
Swinging ship ride and the drop tower, plus off in the right the Ferris Wheel and the Runaway Train roller coaster.
More of the main midway as seen from above. There's also an upper deck of a handful of rides, but those were closed the day we visited and so I didn't get any good shots from that by the way.
Slow night on the Moby Dick and the drop tower ride.
Ride operator totally not pouting at how people aren't taking the chance to ride the Moby Dick. No, he's just fine with that. Shut up. Maybe you're the one who's pouting about not enough people riding the Moby Dick, did you ever think of that?
Glass House, Kite Flyer, and Musik Express as seen from the Frontier Express monorail above Gillian's Wonderland Pier.
Bear Affair, a spinning bears ride at Gillian's Wonderland Pier. This ride is usually dragons. I don't know how much bother it was getting the different cars for it.
The Tilt-a-Whirl at Gillian's Wonderland Pier, also seen from the Frontier Express monorail.
