Amusement Parks...then and now

Sometimes it seems like only yesterday when my father would take me to the amusement park.  My favourite rides consisted mostly of ones that stayed on the ground.  LOL!  The Tilt-a-whirl is my all time favourite.
Here are some photos of amusement park rides from days gone by.

I think the rides from days gone by were tame as compared to the amusement park rides of today!  Please feel free to share your memories and thoughts of amusement parks from then and now by clicking on the "comments" link at the end of my post.
Thank you so much for visiting me today!


  1. im not into the scary rides..but love taking my kids to the carnival or amusement park. My baby cousin and my daughter and I have a girls only tradition at our amusement park we go to every year my cousin comes for the summer to visit. I love to watch them squeal and giggle all the day long..we have so much fun! :))

  2. I love amusement parks, my favorite is Cedar Point in Ohio.


  3. They don't make amusement parks like they used to!! I used to love the old rickety ferris wheels and roller coasters! These pictures sure bring back a lot of memories! Have a wonderful Easter. ~karen

  4. I used to think that the travelling funfair which came to our townwas the most thrilling thing ever. These days kids seem to go more for theme rides but they still have fun on the simple ones. Thanks so much fordropping by at my blog!
