    Adventure Village

    According to Weird N.J., in 1959, Fred Warner built Adventure Village in Egg Harbor Township and operated it with his family.

    On the Black Horse Pike, close to Storybook Land, this amusement park was themed after a Wild West town. It had stagecoach and train rides, pig races, and even featured actors who walked around the park to immerse guests in the full experience. In the middle of the park, there was a saloon and a movie theatre.

    Sounds like somewhere I would have spent summers!
