About the Pennsylvania Dutch People



Smoke rises out of the ground, the smell of sulfur is in the air, the ground collapses as homes are destroyed. Science fiction? Think again.

This is Centralia Pennsylvania, where a town was destroyed by a 44 year old mine fire.

Located in a northern suburb of Altoona, Tipton Pennsylvania, amount the Allegheny Mountains, is a charming family amusement park called DelGrosso's Amusement Park.  Family-oriented and full of family-friendly rides, games, free admission and free parking, DelGrosso's Amusement Park has been providing great fun and entertainment to the region for nearly 70 years.

 DelGrosso's was originally named Bland's Park, named after the Blands' family farm on which the park was first conceived by the Rinard brothers in 1907 when they first brought their carnival to Fred Bland's Tipton farm.  12 years later, Fred Bland opened the small park, which at the time was only a picnic grove a small dance floor.  During the prosperous 1920's, the park received a lot of visitors, many of which were in Tipton to watch the races at the Altoona-Tipton Speedway just up the road.  In 1928, the Bland Family sold the park to George Rinard, who expanded the park and installed more rides and built a roller skating rink and a bowling alley.  But then during the great depression the park fell into disrepair. By 1946 the park only had a few picnic shelters still standing when Fred DelGrosso, an Altoona railroader purchased the property and immediately began rebuilding the park.  Over the next ten years the park was re-born bigger and better then it had ever been in the past.  The original name remained for the next 54 years as the DelGrosso family continued to improve and expand the park.  In 2000 Bland's Park was renamed DelGrosso's Amusement Park.

The park continues to operate today with a wide variety of rides including one of the three "Caterpillar" rides that are still in operation in the country. Other notable rides include an Eli Bridge Ferris wheel, Antique Carouselle (Italian for Carrousel), Pharaoh's Fury, the Yo-Yo, Scrambler, Tipton Creek Railroad, Free Fall, Tilt-A-Whirl, Paratrooper, Space Odyssey, Flying Bobs, Super Spiral, Dodgems, Casino, X Scream among others.  Two other notable attractions include Go-Karts at the Altoona-Tipton Speedway and a Mini-Golf course.

DeGrosso's has three Roller Coasters: Crazy Mouse, the Wacky Worm and Corkscrew.

The list of Kiddie Rides includes: Fire Trucks, Corvette Race Cars, Boats, Elephants, Whales, Turtle, Dizzy Dragons, Helicopters and a Merry-Go-Round.

Their Water Attractions include Tipton Waterworks, Tipton Rapids, Green Tower Midnight Express, Great White and Gravity Groove as well as Red Tower Twin Twisters.

The park also hosts music events in its pavilion picnic area.

And if the name DelGrosso sounds familiar, that might be because the DelGrosso family is also the owner and founder of DelGrosso Foods, Inc. which produces and distributes spaghetti sauce, spaghetti noodles, pizza sauce, and other Italian items.
