Swing into Summer Weekend
Playland-Not-at-the-Beach brings the romance of the travelling carnival and the summer fair into an air-conditioned wonderland. Escape the heat with pinball and magic, exhibitions and games in a Museum of Fun loaded with amusements from bygone times.
The special events of Swing into Summer 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.
