Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In 1928, when Harry Batt, Sr. founded Playland Amusements, Inc. a dynasty was born. Until it was shuttered for good in 1983, "The Beach" captured the imagination of generations. But now, in the mid-1950’s, while Walt Disney was just embarking on his vision of family entertainment, Harry had it all down pat a long time ago. . .

Enjoy this stroll down memory lane to a simpler time of family entertainment. See if it reminds you of the amusement parks of YOUR childhood!
