Rocky Point Amusement Park opened in the late 1840's as an amusement park with a scenic view of the shoreline on Rhode Island. They also had a restaurant with scenic views. It grew larger and larger with many rides and attractions. Some rides called, Russian Toboggan, Looff, Tumble-Bug, The Wildcat, Cyclone, Saltwater Flume and Corkscrew. When the Boston Beaneaters and the Philadelphia Phillies couldn't play at their usual park, they would go and play games at the field at Rocky Point. The company that owned Rocky point was loosing money from make large loans to unrelated companies and had large debts. The park became bankrupt in 1994, and closed, but then reopened for a little while in 1996 and then officially closed and sold all of the rides. When the land was sold, it was sold to a developer who wants to make it into a gated community. There is a documentary about the park called, You Must Be This Tall: The Story of Rocky Point Park which was shown at a nearby theater.
The rocky point is now demolished.
