Storybook Land was opened in 1955. A man was a painter, and he had breathing problems. He was looking for a different line of work, and loved kids. He and his wife bought 5 acres and cleared it by hand. They built a kid themed park and diner for people to stop at on the way to the coast. Later they expanded the park to 20 acres! It is completely designed for children ages 2-10. All of it is very kid friendly. You can ride all the rides without being scared. Today they had tons of trick-or-treating too, and also a maze made out of hay. We spent 4 hours there! My favorite ride (and Einstein07’s) is the Bubbles the Dragon roller coaster (they had bubbles floating around while you rode it). I also liked the Hickory Dickory Dock ride that took you up in the air and dropped you down. It was really busy, but it didn’t seem like it since it was so big. Most of the little kids were dressed up in their costumes. You could ride things as many times as you wanted. The park also has tons of storybook themed places to stop, with things like the Three Bears, Mother Goose, etc. The couple that started the park loved children. The husband died, but the wife who is 90 still comes by every day. Her children and grandchildren run the park, and she visits and helps. We were lucky to be able to wear our costumes twice this year! We had a great time.
