Luna Parc may be closer for you. I goofed when I said an hour away from me. It is in Montague, NJ 07827. It is not open to the public except twice a year for his sale: June 20 - 22, 2008 Semi annual Jewelry and Pottery Sale at Luna Parc, Montague NJ. I definitely plan on going. I am in the 08525 area in NJ, so I will most likely leave/stay from my mother's home in the Pocono area which makes it a 45 minute ride to Luna Parc. Hope you can go to! Cannot wait to see the new addition he added. Happy Creating~
