Welcome

A bit about us

Bushkill Park is located in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is a small amusement park, generally geared toward younger audiences. However, the skating rink and arcade are both geared to people of all ages. The facility operated continuously from 1902 to 2004 and during the summer of 2006 and was then closed until January 2017, when the roller skating rink reopened.

In 1933, Thomas “Pop” Long (1885–1965) leased Bushkill Park, furnishing it with a hand-carved carousel that he and his father had purchased. Pop Long bought the park in 1939 and operated it for the rest of his life with his wife, Mabel "Mom" Long. After his death, Mom operated it with Melvin Heavener until he died in 1986 and then alone until her own death in 1989. The first owner after 1989 was William Hogan and his business partner, Neal Fehnel. Fehnel sold his share to Sammy Baurkot, who was already a co-owner; the date of the sale is May 2019. As of mid-2019, Sammy Baurkot completed his acquisition and is now the sole owner.

 

Bushkill Park was famous for its antique rides such as bumper cars, "The Whip", "The Haunted Pretzel", and "The Bar'l of Fun." The park has operated two vintage carousels over the years, however, the carousel building collapsed in 2014. Bushkill Park is home to the United States of America's oldest funhouse, (currently under construction).

 

In January 2017, the park had reopened its skating rink, the indoor arcade, and children's party area. The park currently runs open roller-skating on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and on Sunday afternoons. Rentals for birthday parties and picnics are also available.
