We have just returned from the annual trip to Darien Lake with four families and total of 12+ kids. Ranging in age from 18 to 12 years old.
Darien Lake is about 40 minutes from Buffalo. It is an amusement park that has all the great rides and attractions of the larger ones without the lineups. We think the short lines are due to the Americans are back to school in the area and for the most part the park is filled with thrifty Canadians. The kids think it is awesome as they can go in, as a large pack without adult supervision.
Kids Favourite Rides Motocoaster, Ride of Steel and Viper.
And my DS likes the ‘toilet bowl’ at Splashtown and I was chief videographer for his blog. LOL!
Fireworks and Laser show every night.
Darien offers lots of choices for those who love to camp. Basic tent, trailer rentals and cabins. Darien Lake Amusement Park | Lodging Overview.
The park is awesome location for us to pull our trailer and glamp!
And I’m not a ‘amusement park person’ so I enjoy sitting outside reading, drinking a few Caesars and enjoying the weather. At night we have a big campfire circle and tell hilarious stories of the day.
The kids have no cell service so they have a huge euchre tournament. Very old school.
Super excited with my purchases from the trip two NEW cookbooks. I can’t wait to use and review them for the 5 o’clock rush followers.
NEW Cookbooks to test out
Hope everyone is ready for back to school.
Have a great long weekend
Here are some pictures of the fun and of course the dinners.
