Rideslover's Rotary Playland & Storybook Photos


Recommended Posts

Hi, I went down and stop at Fresno to visit my father and my good friends on March 7th.

 

I went to the Rotary Playland and Storybook in the Roeling Park and Zoo at Belmont Ave Fresno, CA and I been on the way to Granite Park to see the lightning bolt roller coaster from Las Vegas was along with log flume. I seen they have flat rides that I seen the Larson Flying Scooter, Zamperla Kang-A-Bounce, Kiddie Train and Disk'O are on site was next to building.

 

I'm sorry about that I don't have no time to visit the Blackbeards Fun Center but I already got late to catch amtrak train and I saw train stopped and I run to hop in the train and I'm catch my breath. Train head to Bakersfield and bus to Santa Clarita for the Six Flags Magic Mountain.

 

The new rides are add in 2008. Tilt-A-Whirl and Splash Junction at the Rotary Playland.

 

Look at my photos and enjoy. Larry J. Plants

This looks like a nice little park. The missing wheel on the locomotive reminds me of the missing wheels on the Big Thunder Mountain ones. I have no clue how that helps, but...whatever.

 

Thanks for the Photo TR.

Great trip report and photos. I love little parks like that. The Tilt-A-Whirls is one of my favorite rides. Keep up the good work!

 

Yeah, Me too.

 

They bought from www.usedrides.com the new Tilt-A-Whirl is now opening at Rotary Playland in 2008.

 

Well as they have the Tilt-A-Whirl at the Fun Town in Micke Grove, Tilt-A-Whirl at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as Riptide, Tilt-A-Whirl at Tahoe Amusement Park, Tilt-A-Whirl at Scandia Amusement Park, Tilt-A-Whirl at Belmont Park and Tilt-A-Whirl at the Redondo's Fun Factory.

 

Does the lose the Tilt-A-Whirl from the park? Funderland, Pixieland, Playland in the beach, Frontier Village as Sidewinder, Knott's Berry Farm as Mexican Whip, Six Flags Magic Mountain as Circus Wheel, Pharaoh's Lost Kingdom, Long Beach Pike and J's Amusement Park as like the piece of the garbage and abandoned!

 

Well look forward what's new ride for the Splash Junction in 2008.
