If you’re the parent of pre-teen children (or know someone who is), there’s a one-day-only discount today on tickets for the 2013 season at Story Land in Glen, New Hampshire. If you’re unfamiliar with Story Land, it’s a wonderful theme park near the White Mountains which has as its focus the many children’s stories with which most of us grew up. There are gentle rides for toddlers and more exciting attractions for the older kids (and those of us who haven’t been kids for years). There’s something for everyone, and all of the rides are included in the price of admission. You can easily spend an entire day at Story Land and not get to see/experience everything. If you went there as a child and haven’t been there since, you should also know that it’s many times larger now, and gets a new attraction or two every year!
They have a Black Friday special today to celebrate their 60th season if you order tickets online — only $19.99 per person, which is the price they used to charge in 2002. Full price would cost you $29.99 per person.
The offer is valid 12:01am – 11:59pm, November 23. 2012 (today). Tickets available on-line ONLY at www.storylandnh.com . . . click on pricing & promotions. Use promo code: SL60th (case sensitive). 10 ticket limit per transaction — LIMITED SUPPLY, so when they’re gone, they’re gone! The tickets can be used any day during the 2013 season that they’re open — no need to specify dates when buying, which will give you some flexibility with vacation planning.
You can make a day trip of Story Land from central Massachusetts if you leave early and plan to return late. You can also avail of the many motels/hotels/campgrounds/cabins that are available in the immediate area. If you plan to be in the area more than one day, you’ll find lots of other kid-friendly destinations at http://www.visitwhitemountains.com/
The Story Land web site offers a choice of two ways to get there from here. I recommend the scenic route through the White Mountains via the Kancamagus Highway. There are many beautiful scenic spots along the way, and if you have the time, many places to stop for photos or a picnic.
On the way to Story Land you’ll pass through the town of Bartlett, NH on Route 302. Take note of Trail’s End Ice Cream Shoppe, as it’ll provide your family a tasty final stop when you leave the area on your way home.
With today’s ticket discount, you have one fewer excuse not to check out Story Land with your kids. Hurry, before the cheap tickets run out!
