greg.jpg Now this will make my kid happy! He still likes the Wiggles, not as much as he used to, but this would still be a fun trip. Granted Great Adventure is pretty expensive to go to for the day, but it is cheaper than the mortgage price that is charged to go to the stage show in NY.

Wiggles section opening at Great Adventure
They went from being an Australian children’s music group to a universal kiddy-rock sensation with songs such as “Fruit Salad” and “Hot Potato.” Now the Wiggles — Anthony, Sam, Jeff and Murray — will have their own section of a New Jersey theme park.

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson is scheduled to open a new Wiggles-themed area on April 2, with rides, merchandise and a restaurant named for a Wiggles album — the Yummy Yummy Café.

Six Flags New England and Chicago are also opening Wiggles World sections this year, said group member Murray Cook, known to fans as the red Wiggle for the color of his hair and his shirt.

“This is just amazing for us, and we are looking forward to seeing it open,” Cook said in a recent phone interview from the set of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where the group was about to perform.

Cook said he and the rest of the group plan to make an appearance at the park and perform there during the 2007 season, although they will not be part of the regular events.

Rides to be featured in Wiggles World at Great Adventure include the Big Red Car Ride, Big Red Plane Ride, Dorothy the Dinosaur’s Racing to the Rainbow Balloon Ride, Bouncin’ With Wags Ride and the S.S. Feathersword Pirate Ship jam, packed with lots of things to explore. Wiggles merchandise will be available for sale.

At the Yummy Yummy Café, the child-friendly menu will have some appropriate dishes: fruit salad and hot potatoes.
