They decided to put a net over the roadway instead of a tunnel, for loose articles. I wouldn't think anymore into it.

 

Great TR.

I live three hours from this park and still have not made it. Hopefully next year i can Go then hit up Cedar point

 

It's well worth a side trip!

Storybook Land

 

Every once and a while, we do thing we aren't proud of for a coaster credit. I thought going to Storybook Land would be one of them. But I have to be honest, I loved Storybook Land!

 

It's no Six Flags Great Adventure (or even Six Flags America), but the park oozes charm. In many ways, the park reminded me of Oregon's Enchanted Forest. The entire park is underneath a dense tree canopy, there are adorable figures all throughout the park, and there are a large number of walkthrough attractions.

Sound the alarm, Disneyland's castle is no longer the smallest!

Storybook Land has a confusing name for me since one of my local parks is Story Land. And there are a lot of similarities. Both parks have a Humpty Dumpty sitting atop the park logo.

Such a pretty park!

 

All the shade was very much appreciated the day I visited. If I remember correctly, it was in the 90s with max humidity. But it felt 20 degrees cooler at Storybook Land underneath all those trees. Not only that, several of the rides are built under pavilions as well for double protection.

I can't decide if my favorite tilt-a-whirl is this one, the one at Belmont with ice cream, or the one at Holiday World with turkeys.

It was so hot, the park was giving out free ice creams.

 

The highlight for me was of course Bubbles the Coaster. This is one of the best kiddie coasters I've ever ridden. The ride has the same layout as Kozmo's Kurves, which is already one of the more aggressive kiddie coasters. But Bubbles needed to live up to its name so on the first drop, the ride blasts riders with bubbles. 5 out of 10

Least intimidating name ever for a dragon.

If there was an award for the best kiddie coaster, this would be a contender.

 

The park was also supposed to get a SBF Visa spinner called the Cinderella Coaster for 2020, but I saw no evidence of the ride anywhere. There was no visible land clearing nor track visible. I'm guessing the pandemic delayed this ride a year or two.

At first glance this may look like an actual work zone, but this is just a cute display with an animatronic crane.

 

Outside of Bubbles, the only other attraction I rode was the antique car ride, which was extremely well landscaped. I spent most of my time in the park admiring the walkthroughs and displays, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.

 

Would I recommend visiting Storybook Land? If you have kids, absolutely! It's one of the best kids parks I've visited. And even though it's on the smaller side, it's still worth visiting as an adult if you appreciate good theming or want a coaster credit.

Even the smaller rides are well-landscaped.

I'm late, I'm late! For a very important date!

Don't forget to duck your head!

Is Slide to Wonderland a euphemism for LSD?

The experience ends with a maze. This maze is a lot easier than the ones I used to make in Roller Coaster Tycoon. This one actually had an exit.

This was the best baseball I saw all year since the Red Sox were embarassing.

Goats on the roof!

And just like the beloved Pigeon Forge attraction, you can crank them up some food.

You know what they say about people with big shoes...

Snow White's lovely home.

Snow White threw a party like it was 2019.

Clearly the writers of Little Red Riding Hood have never tried to put clothing on an animal. If my beagles are any indication, it doesn't end well.

Nice report! I've probably driven past this place a hundred times, as it's on my way to AC. Please tell me you stopped into White House Subs while you were in the area?

Yeah, White House is about the only redeeming quality about Atlantic City (especially with the pandemic), but they make the best cheesesteak I've ever had (and I frequent Philly!) as was as some banging cold subs too.

 

There's also two really cool retro video game/toy stores (Level Up in Hamilton Mall and Farpoint on Route 40 east of the mall) right in the area, too, if you're into that sort of thing.

Great pictures. I used to really like visiting Storybook Land when I was a kid. It’s good to see they added some family rides like the Tilt a Whirl and mini drop tower. Except for the train and antique cars, it was all kiddie rides when I used to visit.

I was in and out of Atlantic City in a half hour for Steel Pier. I still need to try a good cheesesteak since I've since learned Pat's and Geno's aren't the best for them.

Thanks! I'm glad they've been adding more rides parents can enjoy with kids.
