no, I don't think so.  We need to book this year to go next year, it will sell out quickly.

We can start booking 9 months in advance. So in September 2017 we need to start trying. This is a premium park (was number 3 in the country in a USA Today poll) so it fills up fast. Gary

Corning Glass Museum is right down the road and children and students are free.

This park made the top 10 parks in the country. It was the second most visited park in NY. It books up fast.

Several months prior to this camping trip, we will be planning a group winery tour with a bus if there is enough interest.


We will also be planing a group hiking the beautiful Gorge where the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge.

We are planning a day trip to Niagara Falls (New York side) during the week, less than 3 hours away and the kids have never been there.

Check these out. For the kids and kids at heart. Kind of like Knoebels. Only 35 minutes away.       eldridgepark.org         www.harrishillamusements.com   
 

This 1890s Looff carousel was originally brought to Eldridge Park in 1924 by Bob Long. In the late 1980s, the carousel was dismantled and the animals were sold off at auction, leaving only the motor behind. Through the efforts of the Eldridge Park Carousel Preservation Society, this majestic ride was restored and reopened in 2006. It is one of the few remaining carousels in the world with a working ring feeder.

Eldridge park carousel is also one of the faster spinning ones left AND you can still catch rings like Knoebels does.
