Kiddieland has deep roots in Chicagoland. Arthur "Grandpa" Fritz started the operation in 1929 with just 6 ponies, offering inexpensive amusements for kids. Within a few years Kiddieland was born, expanding to include a vintage German carousel, a miniature train ride, the "Little Auto Ride," and the "Roto Whip." Many of the park’s rides are near works of art that speed along in perpetual circles, including the 1960s-inspired spaceships, the streamlined aircraft, and the classic lines of the open-wheel race cars.
