Huck Finn's Playland set to open this week

Huck Finn's Playland posted this clip of the relocated rides in action on its FB page last week.

The new Huck Finn's Playland -- which, as you know, includes the rides moved over from the now-closed Hoffman's Playland -- is set to open this Thursday, June 18 from 5-9 pm, according to its website. (And it sounds like that's weather dependent, too.)

Regular hours -- Monday-Sunday noon-9 pm -- will start Friday, June 19.

Ride tickets are $1.75 / 8 for $12.25 / 25 for $29.95, and they're available online.

The new playland is at 25 Erie Boulevard in Albany, just north the Huck Finn's Warehouse furniture store. (You can see some of the rides from 787.)

I could see this as a ( GOOD THING) if the owner of Huck Finn's paid for it out of his own darn pocket!
But, first he gave Dan McKoy a (POLITICAL CONTRIBUTION) of over $2,000 then the big taxpayer gift of almost a million!
Come on public , THE KING DOES NOT HAVE ANY CLOTHING ON!
Are the same customers from Latham going to schlep here?
I don't think so!
Some clown will either damage the property, or someone will get hurt on the rides ,and sue the county.

I have occasionally driven by on my way to/from work, following the construction with excitement at my ability to bring my young son to a Hoffman's-like experience again. I can only say that the new place is sad, surrounded by dilapidated industrial buildings and arid lands, and the numerous rides are packed like sardines into an area not much larger than a Stewart's gas station!! It doesn't look like there is even room to make a line for each ride. It seems poorly planned. Judging from the way it looked this past weekend, I was anticipating that they would need at least 3 more months to make it presentable and perhaps plant a couple of bushes to make it slightly cozy. The news that they are opening today, therefore, took me completely by surprise. TO ALL POTENTIAL VISITORS: you should avoid open-toe shoes and bring hard hats because this place still looks to be "under construction" even though construction is apparently over.

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
