FINDING PLAYLAND.

DVD_FindingPlayland[DVD: Frenetic Productions – 2009 – 48 mins]. Playland Park was literally built on thrills. From 1930 until 1960, children ages 8 to 80 enjoyed a high old time at this great amusement park of 65 acres on Bitter Lake, just seven miles from the centre of Seattle (Washington). Be transported back to that free and easy time with archival video and photographs joined with first-hand accounts of Seattle’s Million Dollar Playground. Prepare for the breathtaking plunges of the Dipper, shudder in anticipation of the Shoot the Chutes, and give as good as you get on the Dodge-Em cars. ANDY SHINE SAYS: A good balance of interviews, park footage and stills. I love the Dipper’s display board proclaiming: “It’s A Long-High Fast-Smooth-Safe-Sane Sensational Ride.” ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
