Unknown Amusement Park 1960s

From the same family that visited Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg, a visit to an unknown amusement park. The park was most likely in Virginia but I am not sure. It looks like a small but fun park. First up is an image of the carrousel with some nice carved horses. The boys sure look like they are having a good time.

Next up is a rocket from one of the swing rides all nice and shiny.

A view of the small Ferris wheel in action. I always like the open Ferris wheels more than the large enclosed rides.

Last image is my favorite of the roller coaster with the entrance shining in neon in the background. The eagles look very nice. The coaster looks like it was a small ride, but still every one is having fun.

I don't know why, but I love photos of "mystery parks". I have a few that I am going to be posting in a few weeks.

These are great, I hope somebody recognizes this place and chimes in!

I don't know for sure, but it would be likely that this is Ocean View Park in Norfolk, VA.
