Story Land

It was a good weekend for going to Story Land in New Hampshire – blue skies, comfortable weather, and best of all, hardly any lines at all ! We were the second family to enter the park (we are nothing if not hard core) and rode the best rides (like the Bamboo Chutes and the Polar Coaster) multiple times. We even bought one of those souvenir pictures that are taken just as you take the plunge down the chutes.

Oh, and the kids ? They had fun, too. After the more thrilling morning, we brought the pace down a bit after lunch in the older part of the park – the Mad Hatter's Teacups is a small, but fun ride, and the kids are not too old for the storybook attractions.

On the business side, Heritage New Hampshire closed its doors last year, and the Morrell family sold out to the company that runs Kennywood in Pennsylvania. The Heritage NH site is still up and links to an interesting train restoration project – the Flying Yankee.

Also, we liked staying at the Colonial Motel. At night, they light a cast iron stove on the front lawn, so you can make s'mores ! Yummy !

Story Land looks like great fun! It's refreshing to see a theme park that isn't all about ULTRA-MEGA-MAXIMUM THRILLS, but puts a lot of care into an immersive environment. I wish there was one like it in the Bay Area.

We like it a lot.

There's a lot of attention to detail in the landscaping and even the woodwork (especially on the older buildings). Even on the farm tractor ride, which is thoroughly new, the patch that you ride through has actual vegetable plants !
