We have just come back from a trip to Playland. We took the kids there a couple of years ago and it was perfect for us, as we could pop over, have a few rides and come home again.
Now the rides are a minimum of $5 each...including the littlest kids rides. So, having 3 of our children go on the little rollercoaster cost us $15 for about a 30 second ride! They offer the $25-$30 all you can ride ticket but we didn't want to spend $150 on going to what is basically a fairground.
My second child was upset as two of the medium sized rides that he wanted to go on were closed so he was left with the log flume and the little kid rides....not so great for an 8 year old!!
All in all, we were so disappointed as Playland's policy to hike the prices to silly levels made it as expensive as going to a "proper" theme park. Whereas, before today, we were planning to go quite a few times over the season, we just won't return. We'll drive further and give Six Flags our cash instead.
