Then, there’s the food… funnel cake, churros, hot dogs, deep fried oreos, kettle corn, should I go on? I didn’t get to eat anything or I would have gone for the funnel cake!

    1. I grew up going there every summer, it was perfect for beach and amusement park fun. We’ve gotten season passes for the kids for a few years, so many great memories, so much fun!
