Playland Lives on Forever! Sept. 4-6

Playland Lives on Forever!

September 4, 5 and 6

September 4, 1972 was the final day of operation for Whitney's Playland at the Beach out at Ocean Beach. But Playland will live on forever in our hearts and in our Playland-Not-at-the-Beach Museum of Fun, as you will discover this 3-day weekend. We will be conducting behind the scenes tours showing how we built this museum, we will also be recruiting volunteers to carry on the tradition, and there will be special treats and contests for everyone. Bring the kids and the grandkids too. We're all indoors so the heat won't matter. Come have a grand time!

The special events of The Pixar Tribute are in addition to all of Playland's regular attractions. Guests pay one low price to enter and 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.
