Teen steals NYC cab to go to Great Adventure, police say
https://www.northjersey.com/story/news/bergen/rochelle-park/2019/03/20/rochelle-park-pd-teen-steals-nyc-cab-go-great-adventure-jackson-nj/3223393002/

A New York City teen who is accused of stealing a running taxi didn't exactly make it to his target destination before police found him.

At 5:45 a.m. Wednesday, Rochelle Park police received a report from the NYPD that GPS had put a possible stolen yellow taxi on Essex Street, said Sgt. James DePreta.

When police responded to the area, they found the taxi and a teenager, later identified as Jonathan Gualpa, 19, sleeping in the back seat. He was woken up and taken into custody, DePreta said. An investigation found that Gualpa had allegedly stolen the taxi out of New York City and drove to New Jersey before getting tired and pulling over to sleep, DePreta said.

His destination? Six Flags Great Adventure, an amusement park in Jackson, is what he told police. Even if he'd made it, he would have been out of luck: Great Adventure doesn't open until April 6.

Gualpa is facing charges of receiving stolen property and was released pending a court date.

Would it have killed him to, you know, research the park's hours a little bit beforehand before doing something like this?

Or maybe took a second to consider that in 2019 most taxi cabs will have GPS in them?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I think the people who would want to steal a cab to go to Six Flags probably aren't the brightest bulbs on the Christmas Tree.

It's a shame he didn't get to his destination to learn why you should always check the hours before going somewhere. :lol:

Would you prefer something like this beauty? (from GAHistory):

They're for theme parks, not Rand McNally. Sure, it could always be better, but they're far from "ugly".


While this one is absolutely uglier, I think it does a better job as a map - that is, helping you find where you are and where youre going. That should be the first priority. One thing Six Flags could do, but hasnt is partner with google so the google maps layout is perfect. You know how some stores (Best Buy, Home Depot) have the layout down to the aisle? Theres nothing stopping Six Flags from doing that.

Whats interesting is that all the theme parks have a very similar style. I am going to do some research on what that style is and why its so popular.

Now, if you guys want to see a map that manages to be butt ugly and do a terrible job at functioning as a map, there are some NJ Transit bus maps that teams of experts are still trying to decipher.

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

Too bad they aren't looking for a Cyborg character too. I think there's one user on the forum who might be interested...

lol at the news article. You have to love the news sometimes, since clearly there's more reality to it than simply someone stealing a cab and taking it to Great Adventure. He was high out of his mind on controlled substances. He was likely on his way to pick up a load of dope, but he's probably not going to tell the police that.
