Old Orchard Beach, Maine
Palace Playland is a four-acre amusement park located right on the beach. It started about 100 years ago with a roller
skating rink and a merry-go-round. The park sits just a few feet away from the
Atlantic Ocean shore and is about a half hour's drive south of Portland, ME. Two dozen rides are packed into the small park.
Two coasters have left Palace Playland:
- Cyclone (1930-1948) was a wooden Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters ride designed by Herbert Paul Schmeck.
- Jumbo Jet was a Schwarzkopf Jumbo Jet that was here for a few years. This ride has travelled to about a half dozen parks, including a
stint as Jumbo Jet at Cedar Point from 1972 to 1978.
