Back away from the cell phones, gadgets, and gizmos and enjoy some unplugged family fun at Land of Make Believe.
Located minutes away in Hope, NJ, Land of Make Believe and Pirate’s Cove Water Park – two wonderful parks for one even better price – encourages family bonding by mixing classic fun with modern twists that appeal to every generation.
A range of activities for the littlest members of the family are plentiful.
As summer winds down, Land of Make Believe is the perfect Day-Cation trip. The park is open daily from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. through Labor Day Weekend, with its Grand Finale Weekend slated for Sept. 12-13.
Become a part of the show with parents acting alongside their aspiring prince or princess in the interactive Middle Earth Theatre. Watch as their faces light up as you casually chat with Colonel Corn, the talking scarecrow. And see the wonder in their eyes as you take them to see Santa’s summer home.
Of course a full array of rides for the pint-sized members of the family are also included, from the classic Grand Carousel to the new twisty Drop ‘N Twist ride. And in Pirate’s Cove, parents and tykes alike love the USA’s largest wading pool with full-size Buccaneer Pirate Ship!
Older siblings and parents seeking a bit of thrill themselves can find it in Pirate’s Cove, home to the exhilarating Sidewinder, heart-pounding Pirate’s Escape, and too-fun Pirate’s Plunge.
With ample free parking and a picnic area (no charge for picnic baskets!), this two-for-one park doesn’t require a summer’s worth of saving up. Kids’ tickets, for ages 2-18, are $28 each and adults are $26. Grandparents aged 62 and older receive a discounted $24 rate.
