On Sunday, January 3rd: Winter Delights and New Year's Celebration

All attractions will be in full swing. Celebrate the New Year with the Muppets! Play the New Year's Resolution Game. Match up the resolution with the famous celebrity - win prizes.

The special events of Winter Delights and New Year’s Celebration 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.
