Storyland: A Great Place to Vacation with the Kids

Taking a trip to Storyland in New Hampshire is truly an amazing way to end the summer with the kids. We needed a last minute fun trip before school started, and boy was this the right choice! My husband had to get work done, so I drove myself with the kids and a neighbor friend four hours to Glen, NH! We stayed at the North Conway Holiday Inn & Suites this time (last time was the Hampton Inn & Suites just next door, but it was sold out for the weekend). The Holiday Inn was very nice, clean, had a great breakfast, and we had an overall great experience there. The only thing we missed from the Hampton Inn & Suites were the water slides at the pool. 

We absolutely love Storyland, and I was worried at first that this might be our last year going since the kids are getting older (now 9 and 6 this summer). Well, I was wrong!!! We will be back! In fact, the neighbor we took with us is 11 years old, and it was her first time ever to visit Storyland. She loved it and said she wanted to go back next year too! There are rides there for ALL ages and fun games to play too! Our highlights (as stated by the kids) are as follows:

Top 5 Favorite Rides:

#1 Turtle Twirl (they rode this at least 10 times)

#2 Bamboo Chutes

#3 Dr. Geyser’s Remarkable Raft Ride

#4 Polar Coaster

#5 Cuckoo Clockenspiel (they obviously love spinning)


I know they also loved the Antique Cars and getting their licenses! That was a definite highlight!! They thought having their “own license” was so cool!

Top 5 Things Awesome About Storyland:

#1 You don’t have to wait too long for the rides

#2 There are a good mix of rides and other things to do for ALL ages (like the gold mining for gems, games to play, and places to shop)

#3 It’s close to North Conway, a cute town in the White Mountains of NH

#4 Everyone there is SUPER nice (all the workers from the front desk to the ride operators)

#5 They have great gift shops, snack bars, and the park is easily walkable

BONUS: If you come in the day before (three hours before close time) you get tickets to come back for a full day! We do this and spend 3 hours at the park the first day and then return the next day for the full day! How awesome is that?

There is still time to get to Storyland this year if you haven’t gone already! Open 9:30-5:00 Sat & Sun Only Thru Columbus Day!

We love Storyland



  1. What a fun day! I love the fact that you can do it in 2 days for only 1 price. Great money saver and help for families!

  2. Well you know I live in NH and we also love StoryLand, recently had out all the pic.’s from when my GD was only 3 and we took her. This month she turns 17 and was at StoryLand taking “now” pic’s at some of the same display’s, it was great to see she loves the place & the memories we made with her there so many years ago. I don’t think StoryLand is ever grown out of and I am sure your kids will continue to love it there for many years.

  3. This looks like it was a blast!

  4. What a cute place, it kind of reminds me of Storybook Land in New Jersey. Wish we had places like this closer to home where I live now, in Louisiana.

  5. Looks like a fun day out!! I wish we had something like that here in Kansas!!

  6. I have never heard of this place before, sounds like a lot of fun! Love the theme of the park!

  7. What a fun way to spend the last few days of summer. My kids would love to visit Story Land.

  8. Wow! I had never heard of Storyland. Sounds like so much fun! Wish I lived in NH so I could take my kids.

  9. Sounds like you had a lot of fun!

  10. I grew up going to Storyland. It’s a great place. Last year my friend and I met up with our kids at Storyland (she’s from Massachusetts and I’m in Maine). It was a blast! Brought back so many memories.
