After our visit to Funtown Splashtown it was just a short drive down the road to the sunny beachside town known as Old Orchard Beach, home to Palace Playland.
|These folks are getting their tan on.|
|Sure, not the biggest, but still fun!|
|The Grand Orient Fun House|
|Crash 'em, smash 'em!|
|Those are brave riders on the Power Surge.|
|The boat on the right is about to make quite a splash.|
The park has added several new rides this year, two of which are kiddie rides. The Dizzy Dragons allows kids to spin their dragon at the rate they choose, and the Frog Hopper is a perennial favorite at parks across the globe. The Moby Dick ride has also been replaced with a newer model, called Riptide.
|Take a spin on (into?) the Galaxi.|
|Yes, that's Galaxi, not Galaxy. Proofreaders need not apply.|
|Heading into one of the ride's larger drops.|
|Palace Playland in all her glory.|
Up next on our trip is New Hampshire's place that's 'just for fun!'
