Old Orchard Beach is that special place for kids that is full of excitement and fun! The neon lights at night shine to invite them into the amusement park and the kids race to the roller coaster ready for the thrill of a lifetime!
Warning: One point in the evening parents will get bamboozled out of cash on the fair ground games as the kids attempt to win that one enormous stuffed animal. You can warn them the games are rigged but they will never believe you!
It is at the end of the night we leave the land of amusement with bribes of one last ride on the ferris wheel, a slice of boardwalk pizza, and a deep-fried Oreo. We savor the devilish treats knowing we will have to wait until next summer to delight in all of it again.
I nibble on the cotton candy as we make it back to our suite, stamping the moments of my children’s laughter on the tilt-whirl in my memory, and knowing the evening was full of magic.
Do you have a favorite amusement park memory?
