Generations of Family Fun at Story Land
I love taking my children to theme parks and here is amazing as it allows them to experience a Land Where Fairy Tales Come to Life. If you grew up in New England I bet at some point during your childhood you visited the Story Land. I visited when I was a child and love that now I visit every year with my children. You can definitely experience Generations of Family Fun at Story Land.
Story Land opened for business is 1954 and continues to thrill children of all ages each season. They are open for the season in late May and close in early October. Make sure you check the calendar for open hours and dates. Check for pricing on day passes and season passes here.

Our kids have come to expect our visits and it is so fun to see them get excited. They talk about all of their old favorite rides and what they are going to do. After our first visit we realized we should come with the kids bathing suits so they could fully enjoy Oceans of Fun Sprayground. They love getting sprayed and having a chance to cool off on hot summer days.
Our Families Top 5 Rides at Story Land

- Polar Coaster
This year I even convinced my daughter to be brave and ride Roar-O-Saurus with me! Roar-O-Saurus is the newest coaster at Story Land, designed and built for Story Land’s unique natural setting and is the only wooden roller coaster of its kind in northern New England. The coaster has a lift height of 40 feet and sends riders soaring down a first drop of 38.5 feet, features 1,242 feet of track length, and provides riders 12 unique airtime moments.
I’ve got to say Roar-O-Saurus was more extreme then I expected and my daughter said she would not ride again at the end with tears in her eyes. I definitely enjoyed the ride and would go on again by myself. The minimum height requirement for the ride is 42″ with an adult and I’ve got to say I would use caution on that end of the spectrum. My son chose not to ride and he is almost 48″ at 5 and he would not have been happy on the ride.
One other area that we had never explored before this year was the Loopy Lab. The kids loved feeding the machines balls and sending them flying!
If you are in New England and looking for a fun family day make sure you check out Story Land and plan a visit. Before you know it you will have started a new family tradition!
