Slyvan Beach Amusement Park was always one of those happy childhood memories that never quite felt the same as an adult. The park has relatively stayed the same over the last 25 years with the same old ,ruin down buildings needing a much overdue coat a paint.
So why did I take the boys there this past Sunday? Because my mother was dying to see them and she too has fond memories of the summer tourist town.
The kiddie rides are actually a steal at $14.95 for an unlimited bracelet. Liam rotated between the same few rides for almost two hours.
Lucas is now big enough to go on the bigger rides…but not alone.
So there I am riding the haunted house ride, and then the tilt a whirl which made me want to vomit. I’m never more aware of my age as when I go on these rides. I used to be able to go all day non stop. But now, Flip me around a few times and I’m ready to hurl.
I did get Lucas to go on the first rollercoaster I was ever went on. He might have been scared but by the end he was smiling as we shared a special bonding moment.
In the end. The place might not be exciting to adults but can still provide a great day to the kiddies.
