There’s just something so special about amusement parks. We all remember being young and being filled with pure joy from being whisked around on rides, and eating too much cotton candy. Some of our readers might recall a popular park in Chester, West Virginia, named Rock Springs Amusement Park.

You can see more old images of the park in this video by ReelNostalgia.

Here’s a video of some children enjoying the park in the late 1950s, uploaded by Jay Smith.

For another historical amusement park in West Virginia, take a look at Camden Park, which was built around an ancient Indian burial mound.
