This is a children's paradise - rides, ice rink, beach, etc. There is a park nearby that is perfect for relaxing and watching the waterfront.

We live close to playland and had heard about the park so decided to give it a try, with kids 11 and 7 years old. We were incredibly disappointed. Most of the attractions creak disturbingly, are old and not well maintained. The food around the park is the worst junk you can get at any park. There is no spark... More

Playland is the reason that municipalities should not own amusement parks. In fact, this is the only amusement park in the country owned by a government. The park will never make a profit due to its small size and because of that it will always be below par. The workers are disinterested and for the last bunch of years at... More

Updated rides and entertainment at a great location on Long Island Sound in Rye, NY make Playland a great destination for the family. It's been around for decades and retains its old charm while it's modernizing in many subtle ways. Fireworks on Wednesday ad Friday evenings are a real treat.

Playland is over 100 years old. Has a kiddy land with safe rides that don't freak little ones out. Actually a manageable day at a fun park on the Sound. The oldest roller coaster in the US, the Dragon coaster, games prizes and cotton candy. Pay for admission and parking, can purchase spectator entry too if you don't care for... More

I used to go here as a kid once a year with my family. Brought my nephews here last summer on a Saturday. Park still has its old-fashioned charm. Park also is calm and laid back. There were no big crowds and the only line we waited for was for the Go-Karts. Park also has some really great indoor rides... More

I thought my 12 & 10 yr old were getting too old for the park but they insisted they wanted to go so we went last minute on Labor day Monday. What a mistake. Yes, we saved some cash, it was $15 admission as opposed to the usual $30 but there was so much aggravation, crowds and lines, I'd rather... More

I love Rye Playland. I love the fact that it is a small park. You can do the whole park in a couple of hours. It is local and it doesn't take hours to get there. I love all the Art Deco style buildings. It is nicely located to the beach. They have everything you could possibly need....rides, food, beach,... More
