Venue Description: For more than 75 years, Playland Amusement Park has been providing recreation, entertainment, and delight to Westchester County. The 280-acre theme park in Rye ---declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987--features 27 major thrill rides, 21 kiddie rides, a 19-hole miniature golf course, a public pool and beach, three indoor ice skating rinks, and a boardwalk. Playland also hosts special events including concerts, dance performances, fireworks, comedy shows, acrobatics, magic shows, and more--all of which make the park a fun place to have a birthday party.

Playland's oldest attraction is the Dragon Coaster, one of the nation's few wooden roller coasters still in operation. Another historic attraction is the Grand Carousel, built in 1915 in New Haven, CT., but moved to Playland in 1927. On the park's newest ride, Super Flight, riders lie on their stomachs to experience plunging turns and two zero-gravity rolls.
