Developed in the 60s during the age of road travel and family vacations, AstroPark is the one 'fun' oriented attraction in town aimed at the tourist industry. With a ferris wheel at the center, it built up small thrill rides that capitalized on its location, with the sun setting earlier in fall and spring, the midway and rides light up brilliantly at night.


A good destination during warm months, it remains a hot spot during off season as a place to go after night. Up until around the time of first freeze, it remains open in the evenings and on weekends. Closing for winter months, it reopens in mid spring every year.


The central attraction seems to be the ferris wheel in this small amusement park. But it also includes a scrambler, tilt-a-whirl, swinging galleon, gravity silo, flying swings, carousel, drop tower, platform pendulum as far as rides go. There are a number of midway games at the center of the park, mixed in with a food court. At one end there is also a go-kart track that loops around some of the rides, the other end has an 18-hole miniature golf course. Its traditional enough that one could by tickets for rides and miniature golf, or one could be a wrist band for the day. Some do hold season passes.
