What criteria does one have to meet to be a real Maine kid? We could debate that all day long based on foods to eat and landmarks to visit, but one thing I think we can all agree on? Spending the day at Funtown USA.

It's hard to believe Funtown has been a Maine staple in Saco since 1967. Generations have enjoyed rides like the Merry-Go-Round, Bumper Cars, Flying Trapeze, Barney Oldfield Roadsters, Dragon's Descent, and the infamous Astrosphere.

(It's okay, you can press play. I know you want to. Go to 1:18 for the memories to REALLY hit you.)

Rides have come and gone over the generations but the memories have lasted a lifetime.

There's nothing like being there as a new generation steps into the park and to see them experience the same magic you did. Seeing the giant dragon in front of the Dragon's Descent is a sure sign of a great day.

Wishing you were there yet? Spinning the teacups? Spraying people in the log flume?
