Bowcraft Playland Scotch Plains
Where are we going today?
What do a super awesome pirate ship, a really fast roller coaster, and a ride that flies you through the air really fast all have in common? Well, they can all be found at Bowcraft Playland of course!
Bowcraft Playland is a family friendly theme park in New Jersey, and is FILLED with lots of fun rides - from the thrilling to the more gentle for the kiddies.
The Galleon Pirate Ship is where the family can rock to new heights as you swing back and forth, and the Crossbow Roller Coaster send you spinning and turning around some pretty hairy bends!
If speed and screams aren't quite your thing, there are a number of great family rides that will fill your day with fun. You can churn your tummies on the Drop Zone free fall ride, or spin around and around on your very own Swinger chair. Why not take a ride on the Train Express, or challenge each other on those classic bumper cars?
For those really little adventurers, they can enjoy some really age appropriate attractions. The classic merry-go-round is always a favorite, and the Frog Hopper is a fun way to bounce the day away!
They can also get behind the wheel on the kiddie boats, or soar up in their very own helicopter! What an adventure!
Bowcraft Playland also has other attractions great for entertaining the family. There is an arcade where you can enjoy some classic and modern arcade games (and try and get that high score!), as well as a redemption center so you can take away cool prizes if you do really well.
Don't forget about the Midway, which is just outside the park and are filled with games like Basketball Throw, and the Water Race Game.
Great family fun all around at this classic theme park - perfect for family of all ages!

I went there all the time as a child and just took my son there for the first time and he loved it! The price is great! Go there after 3pm on the weekend and it is just $26 per person for unlimited rides. NO lines...no waiting. We will definitely revisit again.

I think it was the best place I've been to when I was younger. The rides are not bad either.
