Come with your family, come with your friends, Rocky Point is open, 'cuz it's summertime again!
Rocky Point is so exciting, Rocky Point, where fun comes to life, Rocky Point, you're all invited to share the summertime.
Join the tradition, 'of clam cakes and fun, another generation of new Rocky Point summer fun.
Rocky Point is so exciting, Rocky Point, where you can come to life, Rocky Point, you're all invited to share the summertime. Rocky Point!

(Thank you Jerilyn for the RP theme song lyrics!)

This set of photos is from one of the brochures put out by Rocky Point in the 1970's.  This is the time of the park I remember most and think back fondly on.   It does have some very nice shots of the different rides.
