Adventureland Amusement Park. (Gone.) Addison Illinois USA. 1961 - 1977.

The greater Chicagoland area, once had many little Mom and Pop owned amusement parks.

From 1961 until the park had closed for good in 1977, there was a little amusement park located at the intersection of Illinois U.S Rt # 20 / Lake Street and Medinah Road in northwest suburban Addison Illinois, known as Adventureland.

Adventureland was a seasonal operation , and was advertised on local Chicago radio, television and newspaper advertisements.
It was a small amusement park, that resembled basically..."A carnival in a little picnic grove".
