I received tickets to Story Land in exchange for sharing this post; all opinions are still my own.
If you’re ever in the New England area, you need to bring your family to Story Land in Glen, New Hampshire.
We’re lucky to live near by Story Land so we have gone at least once each summer for many years. Story Land is a fun family tradition that we all look forward to every summer.
Check out my other posts: 2009 and here, 2010, 2011, 2012 and here, 2013.
This year, we made our Story Land visit a real family affair and brought along some of our siblings and our niece too. This was their first visit and they loved Story Land!
Story Land was founded in 1954 by Bob and Ruth Morrell and you can still see many of the original features in the park.
We always have to visit Humpty Dumpty!
And there’s many more classic fairy tales brought to life, including the Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe:
Of course, there’s also the empty picture frame. Step inside the giant frame and snap a photo you’ll always cherish!
Story Land isn’t just for little kids. While it’s certainly geared toward the younger crowd (ages 12 and under), some of the newer rides definitely up the age factor.
This year, Story Land debuted the super cool Roar O’ Saurus, a one-of-a-kind wooden roller coaster that kids LOVE! And adults – we all had a blast taking turns riding “Rory”!
Joshua and Luke weren’t fond of “Rory” (he was a little too “crazy” for them), but my older two who are 8 and 12 loved it and rode the Roar O’ Saurus many times throughout the day. I went on a few times myself and I was pretty impressed with just how fun this “kids” roller coaster was.
Once Luke realized the dinosaur wasn’t real and going to eat him, he loved this cool dino hanging out outside of the Roar O’ Saurus area.
Of course, there’s the old favorite the Polar Coaster, which is a little more mellow and perfect for children who don’t want quite the thrill of the Roar O’ Saurus.
Cinderella’s castle is another must-see area of Story Land.
While we missed seeing Cinderella herself (she has quite a busy schedule!), the kids always love checking out her home and the glass slipper.
We always love the Antique German Carousel too!
Story Land has such a wide variety of activities to do that whether you have a baby or slightly older children, there’s always something to keep you busy. If the kids still have energy but the adults are tired? Take them to “Grandfather Tree” where you can sit and relax on a bench while they have a blast climbing and sliding down this super cool play area.
Or check out the Splash Battle attraction – one of my family’s favorite spots. Everyone had a blast spraying water at the boats floating by. (The adults love this part just as much as the kids! We ALL loved every part of Story Land just as much as the kids!)
Those are just a few of the many things to do. While Story Land isn’t cheap, it’s 100% worth the money because you’ll enjoy a FULL day of family fun!
Story Land is a magical place to visit for families. We all enjoy new memories each year and look forward to many more visits to Story Land in years to come.
