Children get no perks. They don't get to go to work, they are required to make others drive them around, and their hands are too small for wedding rings and serious commitments. Reward your patient child, inner or outer, with today's Groupon. For $5, you get a one-day Fantasy Day Pass to Rotary Storyland and Playland ($13 value). Since 1955, this Roeding Park location has entertained children with classic adventure park rides.
What was once thought of as the clash of two titans, Storyland and Playland are actually partners in the fantasy business. Today's Groupon gets you access to unlimited rides in both parks for one fantastical day building future memoirs. Storyland is the little walk-thru brother of the parks that includes a nostalgic train ride and traditional storytelling stations such as Mother Goose stories and nursery rhymes. Where Storyland lacks in action, Playland goes on a coaster spree. This portion of the park is packed with 13 stomach-twisting and memory-making rides. Hop on the historic Carousel as a warm up for creature features like the Octopus, Lady Bugs, and Big Rocko or Little Rocko, depending on the height of your Rockoness. For seven minutes, riders 16+ years old can experience the Shipwreck Cove, a wickedly wet boat ride with views of the Tilt-A-Whirl and Willis B. Kyle Express Train, just a taunting preview of the fun to come. With today's Groupon, you'll save more than $10 if you only planned on riding each attraction once. The amount of money you'll save after your complete your plan for 37 Bungee Trampoline jumps and 23 Helicopters can buy about 20 pre-park hot dogs for dinner, though you might want to forego those before your body forces you to.
Fulfill the fantasies and fascinations of your children or spice up Tuesday sewing club by surprising them with up to five Groupons for family/friends. The Rotary Storyland and Playland have a little bit of local history and lot of problem solving magic for rambunctious children.
Five Judy's Book users give Rotary Storyland and Playland 3.8 stars and three Yelpers give 4.5. While they report that the park is starting to show its age, there is a significant factor of nostalgia for adults:
Rotary Storyland & Playland
Since 1955, the Rotary Storyland & Playland have sparked young imaginations and earned a place in the hearts of generations in and around the Central Valley. Playland's classic amusement-park rides, such as a ferris wheel and a historic carousel, bring families together with merriment. During the hotter months, families keep cool at Splash Junction, located in the center of Playland. Guests enjoy classic carnival foods, including corn dogs, cotton candy, and shaved ice. Across the lake, Storyland takes a different approach to fun, with its interactive themed garden and playground inspired by classic tales, such as the legend of King Arthur and Alice in Wonderland.
