Wordless Wednesday: Fairytale Town

While in Sacramento last weekend, we met up with Eileen and family for some kiddie fun. Fairytale Town is basically just a big playground where you pay (fairly inexpensive) admission and everything is fairy tale themed. Works for me. An added bonus is that the equipment is delightfully and dangerously vintage. It opened in 1958 and has tons of original equipment. Bronwyn the Brave took a tumble on one of the steep slides and got a head bonk that she took like a champ. The slide maybe, just maybe, could have used a better warning sign than solo riders only.

Shoe slide!

Super steep - they don't make them like this anymore.

Hey kids! Who wants to slide down some bumpy fiberglass?

Headed down the crooked mile.

Giant turtle!

4 faces were about 3 too many to wrangle.

HUGS!

  3. Ah, I love it! It reminds me of a park in Independence Kansas where the slide is straight up and down and there is still a metal merry go round! Ah the danger, makes it twice as fun!

    That looks like so much fun! I’ve had several people suggest it as something to do when visiting my dad, and now I might actually believe that it’s worth it!

    It is relatively cheap too ($4.50). I wouldn’t go in the summer, though. Tons of metal stuff. Plus, there is a donkey!

    Super awesome park. There used to be one like that around here somewhere, but now it’s abandoned and empty and super, super creepy. I stalked pictures of it on the internet once and had weird crazy dreams for weeks.

    We have a park like that not too far from where we live…It’s called “Enchanted Forest”. From what I remember when I was little, it’s almost the exact same thing! We haven’t taken Ry there yet…maybe next summer.

    I love that little hat Spencer is wearing!
