Has your daughter dreamed of riding in a pumpkin coach just like Cinderella? Has your son said he'd like to set sail on a ship of swashbuckling pirates? Then consider a stop at Storyland.
Geared toward families with children between the ages of 2 and 12, Storyland is where imagination comes to life and after a day of exploring this Glen, New Hampshire theme park, you'll be in agreement with its motto that this is the place "Where fantasy lives."
Whether you're twirling alongside the Mad Hatter in Alice's Tea Cups, flying high on a Ferris wheel with family-sized gondola seating, or riding the rails around the park on the Huff Puff & Whistle Railroad, you'll be writing the next chapter in your family's adventures with a summertime stop at Storyland.
Of course there are more attractions than just the rides. Find a circus performance three times a day under the big top, raise your voices at an interactive musical stage show, or see where your child's favorite storybook characters really do live happily ever after including Cinderella, the Three Little Pigs, and Mother Goose. And if your belly needs a break, there are plenty of snack spots, from sandwiches at the Flying Carpet Sandwich Oasis to sweets at Pixie Treats.
The park prides itself on its storybook service. Known for being incredibly clean, Storyland also provides free parking, free strollers and free kennels for pets participating in the family vacation. What's more- the park's website also has a complete listing of the ingredients in each of its food and drink offerings to help parents of youngsters with allergies plan their visit.
Storyland is located in the heart of the Mount Washington Valley in Glen, New Hampshire, just 23 miles north of the Top Notch Inn on Route 16. The park is open daily from mid-June through early September, as well as weekends in late May and early October. Admission is $29.99 per person, with seniors ages 60 and over $26.99 and children 3 and under getting into the park for free. Purchase a full-priced ticket after 3 p.m. and get a complimentary day pass to return to the park for another full day of your choosing that same year.
