Lake George, New York - Storytown - Vague Recollections

Storytown, now The Great Escape, was a major attraction for us Vermonters. Many of the old Story time figures have vanished to make room for Fast Rides. Some have been recovered but have lost their atmosphere amongst the amusement park rides. Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and a few more remain while Jack and Jill look pretty lame since my visit in the 1990s.

[Tim Foley, 03/26/2002]

Storytown opened in the early 1950s and closed in 1983. The statues were created by Jack Binder (1903-1986) who was also the cartoonist who drew Mary Marvel, little sister of Captain Marvel.
