This is an archived section. It is no longer linked to the Home Page of my website. Too many sections, too many topics pulling me in different directions. So, I will leave this section be and not remove the pages because I hope folks that land here and are interested in kiddie rides will find it useful. But I won't be actively updating or adding things to this section.

Kiddie Park
San Antonio, TX

Kiddie Park opened in 1925 and is believed to be the oldest private amusement park in the U.S. There is also a full-sized carousel and Herschell kiddie carousel. I believe these other rides were manufactured by Herschell as well. For more, see this website.

Hoffman's Playland [gone]
Latham, NY

Hoffman's Playland opened in 1952 and featured 13 kiddie rides, five major rides, and arcade games. These kiddie rides appeared to be manufactured by Herschell. In 2014, the place closed and the rides were put in storage. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

Quassy Amusement Park
Middlebury, CT

Quassy Amusement Park opened here on the shore of Lake Quassapaug in 1908 as a summer resort. Rides were installed in the late 1930s with the majority of them added after WWII. Today, the park features a train from 1948, Herschell 1950s-era kiddie rides and carousel, a full-sized resin carousel and other big-kid rides. For more, see their website.
