Inspired by this week’s story in GIL, The Attleboro Sun Chronicle wrote a blurb about the real “Jolly Cholly’s Funland” today. Growing up in nearby Rhode Island, Jolly Cholly’s was a summer tradition. The park closed in 1979.
The alternate reality version featured in GIL this week, is a conglomerate of all the amusement parks I remember from my New England youth. Does “Edaville Railroad,” “Story Land,” “Santa’s Village,” or “Rocky Point” summon nostalgia for anyone else in my neck of the woods?
