Rocky Glen Park

Rocky Glen Park is perhaps the best known defunct amusement park in Northeastern Pennsylvania. This is likely for a number of reasons. Rocky Glen was open from the late 1800s until it closed at the end of the 1987 season, the longest run of any park in the region. It also held the largest number of roller coasters over the course of its history, was widely attended for a number of years, and advertised heavily throughout its lifetime.

The story of Rocky Glen is one of a number of conflicts and changes, periods of immense growth and great despair, and of more cherished memories than anyone can count.
