Today, 29 members of the Fasnacht, Henschke, Curry, Ginder and Darr families are involved in the operation of Funland. They held a pair of private events earlier this month to celebrate the anniversary — one for Chamber of Commerce members and another for police and firefighters.
The celebration will continue throughout the year with commemorative T-shirts for sale and a gallery of photographs located throughout Funland. Funland is famous for rides and games that are safe; those who enjoy high-tech rollercoasters need not apply. The flying cages, in which occupants would use their body weight to do a degree spin, were a rare example of a ride that didn't last for the long haul. You can't get insurance on a ride like that, and we pride ourselves on our reputation for safety. That doesn't mean the classic rides at today's Funland aren't top-notch.
We're tickled when things like that happen. Fasnacht credited his summer help for keeping the business attractive to families. While there will still be plenty of foreign students working at Funland this summer, they will no longer have free lodging.

There are places in New Jersey charging cents to a dollar per ticket," Fasnacht said. Fasnacht, whose family lives in Hershey, Pa.

The name says it all. The prices for kids rides are great! The small rides for the young children are only tickets per ride. This is a must if you have children. The selection of rides is small, they are limited on space on the boardwalk. I have the small size. DianeF wrote a review Oct Fallston, Maryland 64 contributions 17 helpful votes. Don't miss it! Funland is where childhood memories are made. We took our kids when they were small and now we take our great nephews and great niece. It's a step back in time to simple fun including rides for toddlers to big kids, bumper cars, and carnival games.
