Storybook Land.

Storybook Land

Loved it. Great for families with young kids. As child-free adults, we enjoyed just walking around and looking at everything.

Tiny church.

Tiny Church at Storybook Land

This tiny church, The Chapel of Peace, is inside Storybook Land. According to a sign inside the chapel, it was built by 18-year-old Andrew Cresci as a gift to his parents in 1885. Benediction was held in the chapel on the feast days of each saint until the family property was sold, at which time the chapel was moved to a cemetery. It fell into disuse until bought by and moved to Storybook Land. [Brandee Shafer, 08/02/2014]

Storybook Land

Awesome amusement park for little kids, especially little girls 3-8. Lots of old fashion fairy tale houses, and beautifully maintained.

Moby Dick.

Storybook Land

Kind of spendy, but a nice shady park with lots of rides for the younger set. There is a Santa event with pictures at Christmas too. If I remember correctly they usually have live reindeer!

Storybook Land

Some very old rides, some new, many Mother Goose characters, train ride through the grounds, entrance through a castle, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus cottage every year. Storybook Land ... a wonderful world of fantasy!
