History of Funland Amuseument Park
Two brothers, Allen and Don Fasnacht, were vacationing along the Delaware shore in 1961 with their parents and their wives, when they discovered what would become Funland. Allen and Don owned a family friendly park of their own back home in Maryland, and they were intrigued when they stumbled upon the then-named Rehoboth Beach Sports Center. Lucky for them, the owner was willing to sell and they were able to strike up a deal. Despite the Great Atlantic Storm of 1962, their plan to buy the park went through, and has grown tremendously since then through added rides and park expansion. Today, Allen and Don, along with their 5 children, 4 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren, are still involved in the day to day business of Funland Amuseument Park.
