Sustaintable Playland will keep most rides instead of removing them

Sustainable Playland, the nonprofit picked by the administration of County Executive Rob Astorino to take over the management of Playland Park, has backed off plans to remove nearly a third of the rides. The proposal to remove a large part of the amusement park had sparked opposition from the public and many county legislators.

Amusement parks are generally a waste of electricity that Americans and other developed countries are able to afford. Therefore, the name "Sustainable Playland" is oxymoronic.

But this is "Sustaintable Playland".

I figure it has something to do with taint maintenance, or something...

"Sustainable Playland had the best vision for what a family park of the 21st century should look like"

WTF is wrong with you people? Seriously, This park is the Gem of the NE and the early 20th Century look and feel is EXACTLY THE REASON WHY!

I know there are those who say it don't have anything big or extreme or may not be worth a stop.

Stop! Non PC great fun houses, Only other Cedar Downs, Lusse Scooters. Best Whip in the country, Old Mill, Good old woodie and Awesome setting between the lake and ocean.

Adding sports venues etc to the parking area and other areas I don't have a problem with but the park itself shouldn't be changed too much.
