Rye Playland is officially open for its 91st season.

It was a bumpy ride to this point. Westchester County Executive George Latimer tore up a 30-year $30 million contract with Standard Amusement, the management company that was supposed to take over running the park, insisting it was a bad deal for taxpayers.
