Roller Coaster Weekend at Playland-Not-at-the-Beach
Our annual celebration of the greatest roller coasters in the world! Try our Roller Coaster treasure hunt and test your knowledge about coasters! On Saturday we pay tribute to ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts) with some of their members at our museum, so be sure to ask some ACE folks to learn more about the organization from actual members. Only $15 per adult and $10 per child and senior. Open 10:00am-5:00pm.
The special events of Roller Coaster Weekend are in addition to all of Playland's regular attractions. Guests pay one low price to enter and can play all day: $10 for children and seniors, and $15 for general admission. Playland-Not-at-the-Beach is a nonprofit Museum of Fun. Designed and built entirely by volunteers, the 20+ interactive exhibits celebrate the magic and history of America's bygone amusements -- circuses, carnivals, magic, side shows, penny arcades, amusement devices, pinball arcades, haunted houses, and beautiful art everywhere. Our goal is to educate newer generations about the bygone days and allow those who remember Whitney's Playland and the Sutro Baths the opportunity to recapture the glorious sights and sounds of that marvelous era.
