Rocky Point Scrapbook
Thank you to all of you that are working so hard to open this land for all of us.
Some of my fondest childhood,teenage and family memories are of Rocky Point, as a child the merry go round and watching the cotton candy spin into a delicacy just for me. Playing pitching pennies for goldfish and the greyhound races of which I (at 62) still display a prize I won when I was 6). Skee ball with my father and standing next to 'Are you this tall' to see if I could go on certain rides. As a teenager riding the Catapillar and when the top when up giving my boyfriend a kiss. The House of horrors. Prom at the Palladium. Swimming in the salt water pool. Watching the boys at the batting cages. As and adult... Chowder and clamcakes at the Shore Dinner Hall, watching my children enjoy the rides ( I think their favorite was 'the flume') outings with family and friends, Fireworks on the 4th of July. These are only some of my fondest memories. Just hearing the words Rocky Point makes me smile.
My mom used to take me there every summer when I was younger and then when I was 15 I started going with my friends until 1986 when i got pregnant with my daughter. I always loved it!!! I especially loved the musik express, it was my all time favorite ride and still is when I can find one!!! The only one that I know of nowadays is in NH @ Canobe Lake park. Who knows maybe it's the one that was at Rocky Point.
Please save this wonderful place.
A former Rhode Islander, I remember visiting Rocky Point Park as a teen. One vivid memory was when my grandfather took myself and my cousins to the amusement park and he and I were the only ones brave enough to ride ride the white loopdy-loop roller coaster! I will never forget that day!
LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES AS A CHILD AND AS AN ADULT. THE JOY OF WATCHING MY CHILDREN THERE. IT IS A SHAME MY GRANDKIDS WILL NEVER KNOW THE FUN AND ADVENTURES OF ROCKY POINT!!
Rocky Point is the source of many great childhood memories with my mom and dad - sitting on the shore eating clamcakes on Sunday afternoon was always something I looked forward to. Many great times were had in the park itself!! Come on RI - let's get together and save this place, the children of today need a fun place to make their own memories locally.
I Worked at Rocky Point in the mid 80's as a ride operator for 4 years.My last year there was 1986.i ran two of the rides..the Rock & Roll plus the House of Horrors. im hoping that if you get to reopen the park once more,it would be nice to see those rides put back in. as i don't have an e-mail address..could you send info on what..if any rides you plan on putting back into the park? i would come all the way from wisconsin to see the grand re-opening. i was also promoted to breakman in my last year there.i would go around the park and give all the other ride operators thire breaks while i ran the rides. best wishes from a former Rocky Point Ride Operator!!!!!!!
I think everyone that lives in Warwick worked at Rocky Point at one time or another and I was no exception. It was a fun job and the people I worked with were great.
The good old days at Rocky Point - etched in your head forever. Let's not forget that salt-water pool!
