Today, November 27th, 2020, is the 32nd anniversary of the closing of the Palace Amusements. I locked the doors for the final time on Sunday, November 27th, 1988 at 6:00 PM. I remember it was raining out that evening. Still have lots of great memories from that place.

The Funhouse memories are many, Every Year my family would visit the cemetery on 66 in Neptune, M grandfather lived on Munroe and Lake in 1940\'s up until 1954 when he died, we would visit his grave and then for a treat head to the beach, we pick-nicked in the park and then hit the boardwalk and the rides and the Funhouse was my spot, I never wanted to leave it. I now live in Asbury Park (kingsley Arms) and love the fact that it is again on the rise like a phoenix. Visting this museum and reading the write up on the fun house had me tripping hard down memory lane. THANK YOU !

I worked at the Palace for a summer in 1985. I was a ride operator. My sister got me the job because she was helping to restore the carousel horses.
I would also go there all the time as a child. It was one of my favorite things to do. Thanks for keeping this page up!

My favorite memory of Asbury Park was my three brothers, my parents and myself piling into the station wagon on many Sundays in the 1960\'s and heading down from Rumson. It took about forty five minutes to get to
Asbury. We would get SO SO excited when we got our first glimpse of Tillie the Clown in the horizon. It was the first sign that we were almost there. Tillie\'s head would rise above all the buildings. We would scream. But the site of Tillie was \"IT\" for me...

My father owned a small shop on Cookman Ave where my brothers and I worked. One Saturday, the operator of The Ferris Wheel let me stay on as long as I wanted: it seemed like forever. I rode the Carousel all the time and amassed a large collection of metal rings. A few remain and I even gave one to my young son as a lucky charm when he was starting elementary school. Al those good times. Forever a part of me.
Thank you for this website!

I have fond memories of the Palace, going there with my Mom and Dad, My dad and I have a real soft spot for Carosels, I was sad to see it go, ...it is a memory of when life was simpler and more relaxed.
I have a piece of Palace history now, I own 1 of the 2 Wurlitzer 153 Band Organs from the Original Palace Carousel, I love to play it to bring back memories, I have read that the other organ is in the Museum in GA so it is safe as well

ahhh the good olde days...thanks for the excellent online museuum of memories

Since about 1958 I went there every Aug 20 for my birthday. Hadn't visited Asbury Park since there late-70's, and my heart sank two days ago when I found only a grassy plot where the Palace used to be. I recall that the last time I went through the fun house, the tilted room badly stank of urine, so it's future at that time was uncertain.

Your online Museum is impressive; your preservationists clearly value our history; sadly politicians and developers did not and Palace Amusements is long gone. I too remember fun summer nights at Palace Amusements. I especially remember the Carousel & its brass rings; boat rides on Wesley Lake; Fun House and its mirrors; cotton candy; bumper cars . . . as other have observed those memories are forever.

Just thought I would post the link to the PalaceAmusements I designed on Google 3d warehouse Sketchup. I used the floor plan and pictures to get an estimation of the size and went from there. Enjoy. http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=f04743b08c0e49a04a774de3ffbb72f6

when I was a young girl in the 1980s I saw the approaching end of an era. my grandmother and mom used to take me and my brother to the Palace and I have great memories of the fun house, the carousel, the ferris wheel and my favorite ride the orient express.... I am glad that I had a chance to experience these things before they were gone forever.....
