Hey Jay,
I recently was trained on the Big Eli
Ferris wheel at my amusement park. I
was
reading your post about the Big Eli
Wheel
at Mountain park because I was looking
for
some pointers. I was shocked to hear
that
it the wheel that you were talking
about is
the same wheel that I was trained on
this
morning at the Sandspit Amusement Park!
I
just wanted to let you know that we
love
our wheel and now I appreciate it so
much
more that I know some of the history
about
it and where it came from.
Sincerely, Patrick O'Hanley

Great to hear from you, Patrick! I'm glad you all love that wheel,
and it's nice to see that you're trying your best to do the job well.
I've been wanting to get to Sandspit for decades. (In fact, in my
dreams I move to PEI and spend my time working at Sandspit.) I
was hoping this would be the year we visit, but alas, it will have to
wait. We're planning a trip for next year, so if you're still there
maybe we'll see you. Have fun running the wheel. It surely will
keep you busy!

That's awesome to here that you plan
on coming to Sandspit next year.
Sorry I didnt respond to you sooner;
I was too busy running the wheel. I
do plan on working at Sandspit again
next year and hopefully I will see
you. There are only 3 rides at
Sandspit that I'm not trained on,
and one of them is the Scrambler
from Mountain Park. Hopefully I will
learn that next!

Glad to hear you're going back to Sandspit next year, Patrick.
Hopefully I'll see you there.

Hi Nick. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. The change
happened when the new Route 5 access road was built. I'd have
to research the exact date that happened, but I don't believe it
was when I-91 was built in 1962. I think it was several years later,
in the early 1970s.
