Rye Playland makes a splash into summer this Memorial Day Weekend with the opening of Playland Beach and Pool on Saturday, May 25, and a special ceremony on Monday, May 27, to honor military heroes. Monday evening ends with celebratory fireworks.

Festivities include special performances and the debut of The Playland Hometown Heroes Banner Program, featuring personalized banners that will be displayed along the waterfront through Veterans Day as a living tribute to those who serve and have served our country as guests simultaneously enjoy the panoramic views of Playland’s expansive 1.5-mile-long boardwalk. 

In addition, Playland is partnering with NY Waterway this year to launch a seasonal summer roundtrip ferry service from East 34th Street in Manhattan with a stop at 90th Street and Ferry Point Park in the Bronx with service to Playland on select dates, including Saturday, May 25; Saturday, June 22; Saturday, July 20; Saturday, August 17; and Saturday, August 31, 2024. Bundled ferry and park tickets are available for purchase at Playland.com.

Taking Center Stage are Stage Variety Shows (Sundays at 7pm, Starting on May 25) – Playland will host a series of live performances by a diverse range of nationally acclaimed, as well as local entertainers every Sunday at Playland’s Main Stage including a mentalist, yo-yo artist, a “Cowboy from the Bronx” for a high-energy Western variety act, hip hop juggler, and circus entertainers who juggle and eat fire and swallow swords, as well as kid-friendly shows for young audiences with magicians, musical and clown performances who have appeared in New York’s Big Apple Circus, and so much more.

The award-winning amusement park features over 50 rides and attractions including the iconic Dragon Coaster, which will turn 95 years old this year.
