Save Playland Amusement Park

    1. Petition by

      Save Playland

This petition asks that the Westchester County, NY Executive and Board of Legislators select a future operator of Playland Amusement Park in Rye, New York which will maintain Playland as a traditional and historic amusement park without reducing the footprint of the amusement area.

Signatories of this petition want Playland to be operated by an experienced amusement park operator which will maintain and improve the existing amusement park including all historic buildings and structures, without shrinking the footprint of the amusement area or decreasing the number of rides.

Signatories support plans of Standard Amusements and/or Central Amusements International (CAI) as said proposals stood as of February 20, 2013.  Both companies would improve the amusement park and invest in additional capital improvements, while respecting the property’s history and atmosphere.  We believe that these proposals offer the strongest choices for the financial success of Playland.

Signatories are opposed to the proposal of Sustainable Playland Incorporated (SPI) as said proposal stood as of February 20, 2013.  SPI plans to remove 30% of the rides and reduce the footprint size of amusement park by over 50%.  We believe that decreasing the size of the amusement park and removing rides will drastically reduce the number of paying users of Playland.
