Fabulous Frank This weekend Playland-Not-at-the-Beach is proud to present Fabulous Frank. Frank will perform his brilliantly funny magic. Frank originally assisted magicians and when one of our in-house magicians became ill, Frank took over. Now we can't stop him. This guy is really funny.
"Laff in the Dark" was the earliest ghost ride at Whitney's Playland, and people have fond memories of the gorilla, the wall full of breaking dishes and the other denizens of the dark. In tribute to this bygone attraction, we have created a special dark room full of modern denizens that leap out at you when you wear the special safety goggles.
