Storyland - Child-Free Adults Unwelcome

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.

Rotary Storyland and Playland

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.
