    Sad Adventure City Sold...

    Another of Buena Park's attractions is closing for good...

The 10 acre site just down Beach Blvd. from Knott’s Berry Farm that contained Adventure City and where Hobby City opened 50 years ago has been sold. The family owners are calling it quits and retiring. No final date was given for the last day of operation.
    Man... who's the next to go?

    That just stinks, it was such a nice little park to take your kids too. I went there many times when I was a kid, and I took my kids too. It was so nice compared to packing yourself into a bigger park.

    Never been to it, but I know the pain of *any* park closing.

    There are several parks in Ohio that have gone the same way. Probably the biggest lost was Buckeye Lake. Sure, it's still a weekend getaway, but only for fishing and boating... after the coaster derailed, sending the car into the lake, killing its passenger, the park never could stay open. Now, only a fountain remains.

    Makes me sad every time I go out there...

    Well... I'm glad that at least I go to take the kids there once over the summer. They really loved that little place. My favorite when I was little was the balloon ride, and they loved that best too!

    i've never been inside... just on the outer Hobby City area, and... it was pretty depressing.

    although i did wanna ride the roller coaster, even if the car looked too big for the track and as if it were going to topple over.
