This Pennsylvania amusement park began its life as a picnic area way back in the 1850s. Over time, the space morphed into a fairground before becoming a full-fledged amusement park with rides in 1928. Williams Grove featured the roller coasters Cyclone and Wildcat, as well as small coasters Little Dipper and Kiddie Coaster. During its run the park also added fun house rides and a water slide.

Williams Grove Amusement Park was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Agnes in 1972, but park owner Morgan Hughes rebuilt, keeping the park open for another three decades. In 2005, the Hughes family decided to close Williams Grove for good, in order to focus on the nearby Williams Grove Speedway.
