You don't have to head to Dallas or San Antonio to find an amusement park. Yes, those cities have awesome amusement parks and have the BIG ONES. But, did you know here in Midland Odessa we are actually a drive away from amusement parks to the North and West of us? Yes, and 2 of the 3 are just 2 to 3 hours away! Hit one up this Labor Day Weekend!

Head WEST till you come to El Paso, Texas. There you will head to Sunland Park, New Mexico right next to El Paso, and find Western Playland, a heritage fun park that's been around for years.
