Growing up in the Capital Region in the 1980s, it was fun to travel up the Northway and spend the day at The Great Escape Amusement Park (formerly Storytown). We couldn't wait to get there and travel through Ghost Town and become a deputy with Marshal Wild Windy Bill McKay. But one of the highlights of the day was the death-defying high dive act.
It looks as if we are going to finally have a summer like we are used to in the Capital Region. With that comes a lot of opportunities. There are two iconic places in the Capital Region that are hiring a ton of positions for the summer of 2022.
The Great Escape is such a fun place to visit but they have been having a tough time getting people to work. They even had to reduce their hours because of a lack of employees. They are now closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Now they are offering higher wages and bonus incentives in hopes of attracting more workers.
Social distancing restrictions have led to the announcement that Six Flags Great Escape will delay its opening for the season. The theme park has also been assisting the community in many ways during the pandemic.
We all live for the weekends. After a long work week winding down and relaxing may be in some favor but going out for a drink and catching up with friends and family sounds like an even better plan.
One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is do brunch somewhere locally in catch up with my friends...

My mother still calls Great Escape “Storytown” even though it hasn’t been called that since 1983. Originally called Storytown USA, The Great Escape opened in 1954 as an amusement park with a Mother Goose and fairytale theme. The park has been through many evolutions and still operates today.
