The Towers was an integral element of the great Narragansett Pier Casino, designed by McKim, Mead & White, landscaped by Fredrick Olmstead, and constructed between 1883-1886 at the core of the thriving resort, where it instantly became the centerpiece of social activity.

Adventureland Family Fun Park began as a true family fun business from its inception in 1985. The idea of a wet/dry fun park began in the coastal community of Narragansett. Adventureland initially included a driving range, but Hurricane Bob, in 1991, ravaged the range, but out of those ruins came the birth of the Go-Kart track. In 2011, Poppy’s Victorian Carousel and Burdick’s Ice Cream anchored the park as a family destination. More thrills and skills fun were added with the all-inclusive Bankshot Basketball play and Extreme Big Air Jumper. (This excerpt taken from the Adventureland website)
