Huck Finn's Playland is an amusement park located on the grounds of Huck Finn's Warehouse furniture store in Albany, New York. It first opened in 2015 in response to Hoffman's Playland, the amusement park where all of the rides used to be, closed at that time.

History

On September 14, 2014, David Hoffman, the owner of Hoffman's Playland, originally located on Route 9 in Latham, New York, announced that he would be closing his park for good after more than 60 years of operation because he wanted to retire. [1][2]This upset many of the visitors and they were concerned about the fate and future of the many longtime rides and attractions. A year later, in 2015, the owners at Huck Finn's Warehouse, received a generous donation to bring all the rides to the grounds of the store to make it as a new amusement park entitled, "Huck Finn's Playland".
