A product of the expansion of amusement parks in the early 20th century, Playland Park today sits on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the only examples in America of a government-owned theme park. The park's rides range from the family-friendly to the extreme. Experience wild runs, such as the Double Shot or Starship 2000, to achieve blinding speeds, or climb aboard a classic Ferris wheel for a slower-paced ride. You can also explore the mirror maze and spooky zombie castle. Be sure to check the park's schedule to see if you can catch any of the frequently offered free concerts and music events. Keep in mind that many of the thrill rides have minimum height requirements for riders. Put Playland Park and other Rye attractions into our Rye itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It's a great place to go if you have a 3-7yo. My 3yo loves it specially the little roller coaster. They have live performances for the children. We bought food in the park, prices weren't bad at the Nathan's by the race track. We got on the train your, it was cute. We had a lot of fun.
  • Went with two adults and a 9 year old. Had a great time! The child sailing and laughing the whole day. The park was clean and the rides were fun. We went early and the lines were very short. There were a good number of will placed waste and recycling bins and benches.
  • Our family reunion gathering at this park was wonderful! The younger family members had a blast. There was a show in the park that was very entertaining! The performers were talented and full of spark and the audience enjoyed it!
  • Awesome park. Great for young and teenagers. The staff and people behaved pretty good, because some these parks are a little crazy. Next time we will try out the beaches and possibly the picnic area. Enjoy.
  • Always busy in the summer so go early and bring your sunscreen. Plenty if places to eat yet you can reserve a BBQ area and grill your own food (must be done in advance). Rides are fun and good atmosphere.
