Fun rides and the Long Island Sound’s tides are right around the corner at Playland, as the historic amusement park and premier waterfront destination will host a special ribbon cutting opening ceremony on Saturday morning, May 18, 2024 at 12 p.m. to celebrate the start of the summer season. Guests can enjoy a full season of entertainment, rides, beach going and more with the 2024 All Access Season Pass. The award-winning amusement park features over 50 rides and attractions including the iconic Dragon Coaster, which will turn 95-years-old this year, and the debut of Playland’s newest ride, Jack the Puppeteer. Other opening weekend festivities include a celebratory drum roll line up by the Lighting Drumline from the Barack Obama School for Social Justice in Yonkers, a special performance by an electric violinist, strolling entertainers, face painters, airbrush tattoo artists, and more.
