How time flies. Can you believe that it is almost August? In just a few short weeks we will be “Back to School” and missing all of the kids at the park. It also means the end of our summer hours and our summer specials.

Starting September 5 we will only be open Wednesday through Sunday, and in these last few days before you must (get) to let go of your children take that last trip out to Funderland to take advantage of those summer specials.  You can still get unlimited wristbands on Tuesdays for only $10 a person, or 3 wristbands for the price of 2 during our weekdays.  If you aren’t planning on using wristbands, and plan on using tickets, grab a coupon here. Plus don’t forget about our Summer Sizzler… whenever it hits above 95 degrees in the park we give out FREE sno cones.

Once school is back in session you can ease your children’s pain by bringing them to our Back to School Extravaganza on September 1 from 10 am – 6pm.  We will have goodie bags for those that bring in school supplies for River Oak Center for Children, visits from educational sing along sensation Mister Cooper, a number of organizations handing out information, and of course fun prizes and games! And, of course we will be holding our Spooktacular Halloween this year on October 27 and 28.  This staple event at Funderland promises fun and safe trick or treating, a fun haunted house, and a fully decorated park. You can learn more about both on our events page.

The good thing about the end of summer is that we have more time in the park to do improvements. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check them out, we have two new features in the park.  The first is our new information sign that will keep everyone informed on upcoming events and specials.  We are still putting the finishing touches on it, and it should be ready in the next few weeks. What do you think of our progress so far?

New Information Sign

The second is our new seating around our concession stand.  We purchased 10 new outdoor tables made from recycled plastic and steel.  This is a vast improvement from our old wooden tables and we are hoping that in the next year we will be able to replace all the wooden tables and benches within the park with these new types.  If you have ideas on how we can make additional improvements please let us know.  We love to hear your feedback, and have been trying our best to make the park better for you.

Lets kiss summer 2012 goodbye the right way… with some great deals, future events, and promises of a great fall!
