Is there any chance of reopening pine ridge amusement park, or something similar to it? Small version rides and regular size in an enclosed area such as dome etc. These are things that are greatly needed. This was a great place. It would be a great addition to the campground.

my grandfather, Hilding Albin Anderson a swedish immigrant worked at pine ridge for many years. 1st ride he operated looked like giant eggs suspended from cables that you operated with a wing attached to the top. could fly far out from the base or close to it. the last ride he operated was the tilt-a-whirl. seems around 1970 or so they closed. we were gm kids, my dad working at buick and when we would go talk to grandpa, he secretively would hand us some ride tickets held together with a red rubber band. for 5 kids that was awesome! there were some big names out there too like conway twitty, loretta lynn, and buck owens etc. before they were real big. i think most of the youngsters loved them go-carts the most though! i think that was the first ride they stopped. when the money from gm left it seems these parks left also.

My Father Gene and Joe Huffman were best friends, both from Arkansas, when I was 7 until 12 we went to the Pine Ridge Park every weekend, some times went to Joes house next door, I played with Joes youngest daughter Sally, It was a real kick going there, the gocarts,railroad,the animals in the woods, and the concession stand, Joe was a nice generous man, my brother and I could eat and ride all day. Joe was a big man but very kind underneath. I sure miss those days.

I was talking to a friend, Yvonne Cornell, about her family owning and operating an amusement park, so I looked it up to see if anyone remembered the place. She has tons of memories, stories, and even pictures that we will work on posting on this page. So, thanks waterwinterwonderland for this site.

I remember going to concerts there in the mid 1960s. In particular, seeing Pee Wee King, the country and Western singer who wrote The Tennessee Waltz. He was wearing a white suit with a blue rhinestone design. I got to shake his hand. I must have been between 5 and 7 years old, but the experience always stuck with me. Also the roller coaster ride which made me sick. Hated carnivals ever since.

The park was built and owned by Joe Huffman. We used to go there in the 60s. They had a band stand thast used to feature country singers and also amature acts. They had the usual carnival midway with kids games for prizes, ferris wheel, roller coaster and carousel, and go-cart track. They also had a train ride that ran around the park and stopped at the animal zoo. The main attraction of the zoo was a cow and calf that had a fifth leg growing from its chest. I will look for pictures at parents home.

My Grandfather worked in the park. Does anyone know who the owners were. We are trying to add to our family tree and the park was a great place to go when I spent the weekend with my grandparents.

I believe there are go carts and mini golf where the Pine Ridge park was.

I used to go there with my parents in & around 1971. There was a rollercoaster and a go cart track.

I visited Pine Ridge in the early 90s when a small carnival was set up there. I remember the park itself having a miniature railroad, go-karts, a petting zoo, and perhaps a carousel. Pine Ridge was located near an area where Six Flags was considering building a large theme park during the mid 90s but was never realised.
