Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Trolley Ride Opens at Idlewild Park

Daniel Tiger has a new ride at Idlewild Park in Ligonior, PA, which was the amusement park Mister Rogers visited in his own childhood. The "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Trolley Ride," designed by Schell Games, is the only sing-along amusement park ride in the world. The interactive trolley ride travels through the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

"What we have is a state-of-the-art ride that continues the tradition of Fred Rogers and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," said Bill Isler, President of The Fred Rogers Company.

The trolley stops to visit Daniel's neighbors. At each stop, riders meet a Neighborhood character (Katerina Kittycat, O the Owl, Mr. McFeely and more) and sing "Come along, come along, to the Neighbor Hug 'n' Song," an invitation that leads to a wonderful gathering of all of the characters (and trolley passengers) near the end of the ride.
