Visitor Tips and News About Storyland and Playland
Important tip! They do not allow you in without children, I wanted to swing by on a road trip after seeing Storyland on this website and recognizing it from pictures of my mom as a child. I thought it would be cool to take a few pictures, but after paying a non-refundable $5 to get into the parking lot I got to the admissions booth and was asked "do you have kids?" I responded no, and was told I could not go in. So make sure you're having a family road trip if you stop here, and since it's not posted on their website anywhere I'm not sure how young your "kids" must be to pass muster.[Shawna, 03/17/2017]
Rotary Storyland is a garden where fairy tales are brought to life. Explore a castle and see the Three Pigs' house. Playland offers rides for kids such as a merry-go-round and Ferris wheel, and a splash park that is open free to the public during operating hours.[caltonia, 01/06/2013]
