Storyland in New Orleans City Park has been a favorite place for kids and adults. This beloved New Orleans attraction has been a part of our hearts for 60 years. In 2019 it got a major upgrade!
STEM-related activities, increasing ADA accessibility and becoming more inclusive were among the primary goals for the $800,000 upgrade.
What Upgrades Were Done TO Storyland in New Orleans City Park?
Updates to old favorites, like the Puff the Magic Dragon slide, and four new additions breathed new life into this historic attraction, which was recently named one of the top family activities in New Orleans.
Classic exhibits, such as Snow White, Hey Diddle, Diddle, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio and the Whale, Little Red Riding Hood, and others, received enhancements.
One of my favorites was the upgrade to the Gingerbread Man, who received an interactive Candyland game!
Don’t forget to slide down the beautifully restored Puff the Magic Dragon slide and then make your way to stop by and visit The Little Mermaid. You can steer your own pirate ship in the grotto and strike a pose as a mermaid or merman!
