Story Land is a moderately sized, family-oriented theme and amusement park located in the city of Glen, New Hampshire. The park has been open and operating for over 50 years. The overall theme of the park revolves around storybooks and fairy tales and was made to appeal especially to children between the ages of 2 and 12, but many families and groups also enjoy the park as a magical way to spend the day.
Story Land prides itself on not only offering a whimsical and fun-filled experience for families to enjoy together, but one of great value as well. Included with park admission is access to not only rides and attractions, but free entertainment as well. They also provide guests who come to the park and pay admission within the last three hours of the day with a pass for free admission on another day. Free stroller use, kennel use and parking are also provided for the convenience of visitors.
The rides and attractions at Story Land are all appropriate for families and children. As is the case with the look and feel of the park itself, quite a few of the rides adhere to a fairy tale and storybook theme. Many of the rides are Story Land's own versions of tried-and-true amusement park classics such as the antique German carousel, the antique cars, and Alice's Tea Cups. Other popular rides include Dr. Geyser's Remarkable Raft Ride, the Polar Coaster, the Great Balloon Chase, the Turtle Twirl, and the Buccaneer Pirate Ship.
A number of unique interactive play areas are also part of the mix at Story Land. Dr. Geyser's Mini-Geyser's are a series of fountains in which children can splash and play. The Loopy Lab is full of fun interactive games for all ages. The Little Dreamers Nursery Play Area is a magical playground based on a number of Mother Goose's world-famous nursery rhymes. What's more, every child's favorite storybook characters make personal appearances all over the park and include Cinderella, Mother Goose, and the Woman in the Shoe. There's even a petting zoo where guests of all ages can interact with sheep, goats, pigs, and more.
As is the case with many theme parks, Story Land offers free entertainment to its guests as well. Although which shows are available can vary from season to season, past attractions have included performances by the Royal Hanneford Circus, as well as many shows geared toward children that involve puppets, storybook characters, music, and interactive experiences. Those interested in any of Story Land's shows should visit the park's website for a current schedule of events.
Food options at Story Land are plentiful and varied. Guests have the choice of enjoying a sit-down experience at any one of the park's fairytale-themed restaurants or grabbing a quick snack or eat-and-go meal and enjoying it as they explore the rest of the park. Available options include pizza, ice cream, tacos, soft drinks, and much more. Those interested in taking home a souvenir of their day at Story Land can pick one up at one of four gift shops located conveniently within the park, as well as at both the exit and entrance.
