Flashback Feature #39–The Land of Make Believe

Four years ago, in August 2009, we visited The Land of Make Believe in Hope, NJ. This place is such a great amusement park for little kids with just about all kiddie rides, plus a water park included. I remember visiting with my family when I was a kid and it was a lot of fun to take Gabbie and Zachary there too.

This is such a cute family amusement park – have you ever been there or to one like it?

You just totally brought back memories for me. We went there when we were kids (my brother and I) with my parents. I totally forgot about this place until I saw your post. But my parents took us and I do remember we had a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing this!! :)

I grew up near Storybook Land, down in our section of NJ. We used to love going there! Such cute memories!

I so remember commercials for this place and that I used to beg my parents to take me. I think it's about 2 hours from where I live so I have to check it out.

I found you through Raising Reagan and I'm hooked! I lived in New Jersey for 27 years and left for San Francisco and now New England. I grew up in Roxbury but my parents now live in Blairstown which is quite close to Hope! My daughter is four now and they keep telling me to take her to the Land of Make Believe. It's five minutes from their house! I never went as a kid but my siblings have good memories of it.
