Ocean County Moms Summer Fun Guide is Presented to you by:

Storybook Land 


At Storybook Land, our emphasis is on fun for the entire family with special attention given to its youngest members. The rides at Storybook Land – like our entire park – are clean and impeccably maintained, with ride operators who are trained to take the time to insure your child’s comfort and well being. If this is your child’s first visit to an amusement park, you can be certain that it will be a very positive experience. Equally important, if you have visited any of the country’s theme parks for small children, we think that you will agree that a visit to Storybook Land is unsurpassed either in terms of quality or good old-fashioned family fun!
