“Abandoned amusement park”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Story Land was a privately-run fairy tale park that closed in the 1980s. The 18-ft. tall Pied Piper statue stood on the edge of US 30, a colorful attention-getter that drew people off of the Lincoln Highway and into the woods, where more Mother Goose statues beckoned.Today, a few of those old statues can be seen behind Piper's Place Country Originals, a crafts and plant store run by the daughter of the original owner. The large white castle entranceway has been torn down. The Pied Piper is kept in good repair, still serving as an effective eyeball-grabber after all of these years. But don't go wandering into the woods to look at Humpty Dumpty, the Old Woman's Shoe, and the Big Whale. Directions: On US 30 just west of town.

We were spotted snapping a few photos and the old man of the house sped down on his golf cart and proceeded to lose his everloving mind. He didn't stop screaming at us, demanding our camera, or threatening to call the police until we deleted all of our photos. However, the statues are pretty neat, so if you decide to go anyway, be sure to park on the little turnoff on the side of the road (NOT the parking lot), bring an extra pocket sized camera, and be prepared to be cussed at and called a hippie.

This defunct amusement park is no longer accessible. It's on private property, and the owner is very serious about no one trespassing.

I haven't been here.....yet! After reading these reviews it begs the question of why one would keep this place so under lock and key. People chasing off on lookers of a amusement park that they chose to live in....Creepy if you ask me. Makes me want to go there even more now haha

They're closed from Monday-Wednesday, so unless you skip like hansel and gretel through the little trail, no one will even see you. The structures are basically in their front yard, but it's large so if you're quiet and smart you can stay pretty incognito. Go up behind the sign by the road and crawl up that hill, or if you just want to see Humpty Dumpty, go past the shop and past the little lodge and he's right there next to the block! Pretty cool, glad I went.

it was lame.. we went and bought a candle and the other half of us snuck up behind the mountain and it was lame. the husband caught us and well they built their house up there on the hill... we talked to the candle lady about properly taking pictures and she talked about their lawyers and no insurance and well you should just go sneak up the side of the mountain before you get caught.. park on the road before you see the tall piping peter statue..

My parents use to take my brothers and I to Storyland when we were small. We must have visited just before it was closed. It was one of our most favorite places to go! If you can still go there and check it out, I'd highly suggest you do so :D

Unless you want to be threatened by the crazy af owner, dont go. The owner sped down on his fourwheeler while someone else blocked us in the parking lot. They threatened to call the police, which might have been a better idea since the owner should've gone to jail for assault. He threatened to take our personal belongings. If you want this thrilling experience, be sure to park where they cant block in and be prepared to run.

Pretty much nothing left to visit. This was a gift shop for a while but with limited hours. I pass by every few months and it always seems closed.
