Could it be... the East Coast's answer to Kiddieland?
Perhaps. And I'm certainly chomping at the bit to learn more.
What I've found so far is that Hoffman's Playland in Latham, NY, opened in 1952. And many say it's much like it was over fifty years ago. The park contains 19 rides in a compact 5 acre area.
I absolutely can't wait. Sure, Hershey Park may have the chocolaterifficness, and Knoebel's apparently has an awesome dark ride, but Hoffman's has old-fashioned charm.
And a sign that's both retro-cool and scary. Who could ask for more?
