This nostalgic Ohio amusement park is only open to the public 4 times a year

Stricker’s Grove, a family-owned and operated private amusement park in Hamilton, Ohio, is hosting its annual Fourth of July Celebration this year. The event is open to the public on July 4, with free admission to enter the park. However, rides will require tickets, which can be purchased individually or through an unlimited armband. Individual tickets cost $2.50, $10 for five tickets, and $25 for 20 tickets.

The park offers a variety of old-fashioned games and rides, including two roller coasters. Stricker’s Grove is renowned for The Tornado, a wooden coaster designed by Al Collins and built by Ralph Stricker, the only person in the United States to build his own roller coaster.

In addition to the rides, food and alcohol are available for purchase, and guests are allowed to bring their own food into the park. Rides will operate from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., with fireworks scheduled for 10 p.m. Parking is $5 per car before 6 p.m. and $10 per car after 6 p.m. Stricker’s Grove is also available for rent for family picnics, wedding receptions, and other occasions. The park can be found at 11490 Hamilton-Cleves Road in Hamilton, Ohio. More information can be found here.
