Park Updates: Changes to Our Changes

Jan12

Hi folks!

We are really excited for the changes that will be coming to Funderland this year and next! We have actually been working on our park updates since 2013, and were finally able to start them this past October. Initially we had planned to have a new swing ride installed, a new car ride track and queue, new birthday area, and a stage completed by opening day of our 2015 Season. Unfortunately, life threw us a curve ball.

Because we want to keep everyone “in the loop” we wanted to let you know that we have run into a bit of a hold up. Back in spring of 2014, we met with our architect and contractor to discuss the building of the stage, birthday area, and car ride queue. Plans were created, and submitted to the City Planning Department in the early fall. Currently, we are still waiting for the Planning Department to give the “OK” to complete our projects. These projects were supposed to be completely finished by mid-January, but since we are still waiting on the Planning Department, construction has not yet begun. Maybe next time we plan on submitting our plans to the Planning Department we will do it a good year in advance!!!

Additionally, quite a bit of our winter maintenance season was cut short by the rain (HOORAY!!! We needed it). That has also pushed back our project schedule and timeline for installation of our new Swing Ride. The new ride is in the park, and luckily these dry days will let us complete the necessary steps for the ride installation when the rain would not.

The good news is that though we are a little behind on our updates, we will still be opening for the 2015 season as planned even if our updates open a little bit later than we anticipated (if the Planning Department will let us). I will continue to keep you updated as plans change.

Sincerely,
Sam Johnston

Happy Holidays from Funderland!

Dec16

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is almost over! If you feel like the years are just flying by (we do!) now is a great time to take a few minutes and reflect on all the amazing things that this year brought to all of us!

Why the Holidays Make Us Happy

There is so much to be thankful for and so many wonderful memories made each year. Whether it’s meeting new friends, celebrating family milestones and achievements, or heading out on a new adventure like a big move, new job, or family vacation; you’ve done a lot this year!

Here’s just a few things that we’ll remember from 2014:

  • We celebrated 30 years of dishing up pint-sized rides and fun for the Sacramento Area. It’s so exciting to see 2nd and even 3rd generation families visiting our park with their kids and grandkids.
  • We added a new baby to our herd. The Funderland Family welcomed a sweet baby girl this Spring and we’re so happy to have a new little to call our own!
  • We’ve made so many new local friends and connected with new families in the greater Sacramento Area. We love being a part of your family’s lives and feel honored to be a part of the memory making.
  • We’ve already started on renovations and in-park improvements that we can’t wait to unveil during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. We know you’ll love them too!

So what memories will you cherish from 2014? We hope you find a moment or two to reflect and be thankful for this beautiful life and all it has in store! Are you ready to make some more memories in 2015? Purchase your 2015 Season Passes here by Dec. 31st and save $15 off each!

Wishing you and yours – Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from your friends at Funderland Amusement Park

See you in 2015!

Spice up Your Thanksgiving Celebrations

Nov14

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to spend with family and friends and celebrate the season. However, if you’re looking for ways to spice up your Thanksgiving celebrations, we have a couple of festive ideas for you and your family to try this year!

1. Give back this Thanksgiving

There are lots of ways to give back to your community or to local or national non-profits. This is just another great way to help teach kids the art of gratitude and build their character.

2. Get your kids to be grateful

Spend about 10 -15 minutes as a family sharing what you’re thankful for. Encourage your kids to think beyond being thankful for their toys (although these are things to be grateful for too!). Jot down what everyone shares and save them someplace safe. Then next year you can re-read them together and remember all that you were thankful for!

3. Make festive crafts with the kids

Get crafty by making miniature Mayflowers, Turkey Pinecones, & Fun Leaf Fans – perfect for decorating your home and bringing the holidays inside.

4. Pumpki-fy your snack time

Instead of pumpkin pie – try a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. Pumpkins are packed full of good for you nutrients like Vit. A and is low in calories. Your kids will love the smooth texture and sweet comforting flavors.
