You may never have heard of Storyland before. It is an amusement park catered towards 3 -10 year-old children and parents with youthful hearts. Our little guy turned 3-years-old this year and we adventured up to Storyland - the first time going for my husband and the first time for me since I myself was a child. The park has gotten much larger since I was a tot. There are many more amusement rides than I remembered as a child. The more traditional activities that I remember from my youth, such as the old lady in the shoe and Cinderella's Castle are overshadowed by the newer flashy amusement park rides. My little guy, who likes to go FAST, really enjoyed all of the rides. There were some rides that require children to be 36 inches tall and a parent to accompany him/her. If children are 48 inches or taller, then they could go on most rides on their own. I think that my little guy's favorite ride was steering the antique car around the park. The train was also pretty cool. He got to take a trip on a pirate ship and ride his first roller coaster! Being an expectant mommy, I sat out and played the role of photographer for many of the rides. There was an abundant of trees shading benches by every ride, which made it perfect for enjoying the fun from the sidelines. I think that we will definitely go back next summer!
