Last years trip was amazing
If you missed it, here’s your second chance.
If you attended, you probably want to do it again
only bigger and better.

Here’s how it goes:

We will depart from San Diego early on Friday morning Nov. 6th. Transportation will be provided by Goldfield Stage Co. We will make food and rest stops along the way and there will be plenty of snacks & drinks on the bus. There will also be a special movie presentation to kick off the holiday season. We will arrive in Williams AZ in time to get checked into “The Days Inn” and have a wonderful dinner at “Kicks on Route 66″.

There may be a zipline option
This is Williams Arizona’s newest attraction.

It’s high flying and it’s fun for all ages.

Saturday morning we will Have breakfast and spend the day at the incredible Grand Canyon. Most of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon but there will be an option to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. ride is a little longer but It’s a treat and well worth it. The train features observation cars to give you the best view possible and they also have food and drink aboard. It’s like taking a step into the past. Train riders will be met at the Grand Canyon and return on the bus to party with the rest of us.

Sunday morning we will be on the road back to San Diego. There will be an onboard champagne party to finalize a fantastic weekend.

There are many more fun surprises in store for you on the trip and here’s the best part. You will pay only $110 per person for this trip plus the cost of hotel at $70.00 per night for two nights. It’s a total easy payment plan. All you need to reserve your seat is $110 per person. Your hotel payment not due until November. What could be easier? This gives you plenty of time to plan and adjust your schedules. You can start booking now.

Check your schedules and get your reservations in soon. You know what will happen if you don’t. You’ll be sitting at home in November looking at photos of everyone else having fun. That would just be sad.

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.

Another fantastic adventure

It was just as good as last year

The three day two night trip to Fountain Hills AZ. was fun for all. The Inn @ Eagle Mountain. has hosted us for the last 6 years and “it don’t get no better”. After a day of tubing what could be better than your own Jacuzzi tub? Well, every room comes with Jacuzzi and fireplace. Not only that but in true Fred’s Playland style, these luxury accommodations were not $300, or $200, but only $69 per night.


In 2014 we rocked the house!

Special offer because a lot of you have asked


Firearm Safety Class for Beginners.

We had an absolute blast at our last firearms safety class. Class was very informative and the questions were amazing. We got to touch and handle several different types of guns including revolvers, semi automatics, rifles, and even machine guns and an Uzi. Everyone did great on the firing range. some were a little timid but I can understand that. Some of the guns were very powerful. Hopefully the information gained will help you be more safe in the future and maybe some of you will even purchase your own guns. When you do, think about the fun you had in Fred’s Playland Firearms Safety Class 101.

By Special Invitation only for
Fred’s Playland


Dr Phil Welcomes Dr. TD Jakes

The Date was Monday April 14th

Dr Phil with guest Rev. TD Jakes.
This was just a little different spin on the Dr Phil Show. In the past we’ve made stops at Gruman’s Chinese Theater, The Farmer’s Market, Universal Studios, and Even the Hollywood Bowl. But none equaled today’s trip. Afrer being showered with gifts from the Dr Phil Show, we took a short drive to Lincoln Heights and were treated to lunch, a tour of a winery, and wine tasting of some of California’s best wine. All thanks to the beautiful San Antonio Winery of Los Angeles.

It was a party at sea

45 people took this 4 day journey from Los Angeles to Catalina Island & Ensenada Mexico. Prices ranged from $131 to $301. Those are fantastic prices in anyone’s book. We had our own tour guide on Catalina as well as a golf tournament with great prizes. In Ensenada we had our own bus to La bufadora, The Corona Beer Brewery, Downtown, and a short wine tasting stop. My favorite part was the amount of kids and first time cruisers onboard. I love it when my people try new things. That’s what Fred’s Playland is all about. Making it possible. Thanks to Carnival Cruises for making this possible and special thanks to Chuck Lidell for your help. And thanks to all of you who made this trip wonderful for me.

 November 23rd was the day

Fred’s Playland was invited to take a ride on one of the fastest commercial boats on the ocean. We were one of the first groups to experience the power of the Patriot. I was invited to go out on media day and it was awesome. Just so you know, this is not a casual tour. It’s an all out thrill ride. We sped across the bay at around 50 mph performing turns and spins the way only a jet boat can. Here is one of my videos from media day. 

Our special price for this event was only $22.00

I’ll be riding with you to make sure you have lots of photos & video of this experience. This is San Diego’s most unique thrill ride.
