not much has changed here, in at least 50 years. The rides are getting old, and the prices are getting higher, but all in all a good experience for children.

This little "seaside" park is perfect on the shores of Lake Oneida in New York. The rides are mainly classic ones that have been here for years, including the classic dark ride that remains virtually untouched since it was installed years ago. Concessions, games, and...More
