Enjoy boozy, adults-only parties at Playland on these summer nights


Playland Amusement Park isn’t just for kids, and this summer adults can get in some late night fun with special offerings during Playland Nights.

Beginning July 5, Playland will offer the specialized, nighttime event every Friday from 7 p.m. to midnight that month. The evening will include dedicated, adults-only (19+) attractions and entertainment.

Not only will guest DJs spin a variety of epic party tunes under the twinkling lights, but guests will also be able to enjoy an assortment of “Playland-inspired” adult beverages. For example, there will be a brand new Dry Ice cocktail and Tito’s Handmade Vodkadrink, which is a combination of Tito’s Very Berry Lemonade, Jalapeno Lemonade and Canadian Mule. Playland will also offer a selection of craft beer and wine.

There will also be an Underground Circus crew – a roaming crew of acrobats who bring with them a roaming Circus a la Carte full of circus menu items. Guests will be encouraged to join in their acts where appropriate.

There will also be an evening with Drum N dirty starting each Friday in July at 8 p.m. Drum N Dirty is a live percussion DJ who drums to reimagined and remixed party music. Following this, Samba Fusion, a group of Brazilian samba showgirls, dazzle crowds with carnival costumes and high-impact energy at 9 p.m.

America’s Got Talent and MTV’s stunt magician, comedian extraordinaire and Instagram influencer, Wes Barker, will be on stage at 10 p.m. on each evening. Finally, the Dancing Teasing Fabulousness team will tantalize crowds with a burlesque show to top the night off.

Admission also includes unlimited access to over 20 rides and attractions, and the first 100 people to buy their tickets will get a specially discounted ticket priced at only $25.
