Health Concerns at Rye Playland


A LoHud report cites some safety issues at Playland, including:

  • Two years in a row of birds and rats or squirrels getting into bags of hot dog buns. In 2016, birds apparently defecated on boxes and bags delivered by a bakery.
  • A lack of wiping down of ride vehicles and gates.
  • sponsored by:
  • Some areas with worn carpets, floors or chipped paint — aesthetic issues but not safety concerns.
  • The appearance of a lack of manpower that at times led to certain rides being closed during busy periods.
