  • This amusement park is a no brained for families to visit throughout the summer and autumn. While not the biggest amusement park in the, Playland provides a large variety of rides to keep most easily entertained throughout the day. My personal recommendation would be to attend Fright Nights in the fall season. With the addition of close to a dozen haunted houses, you're never having to wait a long time to get on any ride. The food options are decent; there's even a mini Triple O's diner at the entrance of the park, which provides a nice little spot to take a bit of a break.
  • Playland and the PNE were honestly a lot of fun this year. Cleaner than ever before, and just as much fun as we remember back when we were kids. My daughter and I went with one of her friends and spent all day long (over 11 hours!) without getting bored, tired or overwhelmed by crowds. Water refills are available everywhere and there is good food mixed in with all the carnival stuff. A great day that we'll definitely repeat.
  • Fright night here is a joke! Only way to get in any rides is if you pay for the $100 ride advance ticket and that slows down the rest of the lines for the rest of the people who already have to pay $40... was there for 4hrs only got to ride on three rides and couldn't get into any haunted houses. Lines were 2hr plus wait time. Super disappointing.disgusting really how they have this worked out. And you'd think wth all the money they were making they could afford to pay someone to clean up all the trash in the garbages . Absolutely never going back again complete waste of time and money. šŸ‘ŽšŸ˜”šŸ˜”
  • Fright Nights at PNE is lots of fun even if you dont do lots of rides. But watch out for their games that they have. Dont spend too much and be frustrated when you dont win. Because the chances are that you are probably not going to win.
  • A theme: Hooray! Iā€™m going to the park today. To enjoy the fun, phylactery in hand, nothing in my way except the sun. Donuts to be destroyed, balloons to be popped, my wallet to be dropped. Some heights, some twirls, some spills, pink and blue cotton candy to settle little tummy ills. Speed on the coaster in matching the waiting time leaves life in beautiful contrast. Day is done, I can have no more fun, weary through, the theme has changed to boohoo.
