Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014


A few nights ago Jay Leno made a special appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show and presented him with an envelope. In that envelope was a letter from the network renewing the show for a second season.

Guess who was immediately invited to return???
That’s right! Fred’s Playland is going to
The NEW Arsenio Hall Show
filmed at Bronson/Sunset Studios on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.

This show has been un-available for large groups for some time but we just got a special invitation from the studio for a return visit. The last trip sold out very quickly and it was one of the most fun trip we’ve ever done. So don’t miss out.
18 years old and up please

It will be a full day trip. We’ll be departing from the First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley at 11:00 am. We’ll make a lunch stop before arriving at our destination of Sunset Bronson/KTLA Studios in Hollywood. We will be involved in the taping of 2 shows before returning to San Diego the same evening. We will return approximately midnight.

The cost will be $30 per person and will include all the snacks, beverages, and fun that you are accustomed to. And since this in not a morning event I can bring the good cocktails:) Please get your reservation in as soon as you can so you don’t get left out. I know it’s rough for some of you to get away from work on weekdays but this trip will surely be Worth it. You can submit your payment and RSVP now!

$30.00 per person via PayPal
Price increases to $35.00 after Tuesday Apr. 1st.

I am very excited about this trip. I don’t know who the guests will be right now. That information is not usually shared but I’ll hope to get the inside scoop. But just so you know, It will be a good time. The last trip was unbelievable!

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.

-Past Event-
Paragliding Torrey Pines
November 17th

Yes! That's Me.

The event was absolutely flawless. The sun, the wind, and the rest of Mother Nature totally showed us favor. It’s been almost 4 years since we’ve taken to the skyways of Torrey Pines. Last time we had 15 people join in on the fun. This time we had 22, including 2 last minute add-ons. It was a day of fun, sun and excitement and all for only $100 per person thanks to the generosity of the owners and management of The Torrey Pines Glider Port.

The price of paragliding is $159. Even the group rate is $139. After weeks of strong negotiations I finally got us a price of $100 per person. You have never seen this price and you never will again. How many times you’ve heard me say, “Some opportunities only come along once”. This might be one of those opportunities.

I would say the day was somewhere in the neighborhood of…PERFECT!

Fred’s Playland Science Tour

This tour was for the whole family and was fun and educational. ?We took a look at a different side of…
The City of Angels.

We departed from San Diego at 7:30 am and our first stop was The LA Science Center. We viewed numerous exhibits highlighted by an up close and personal look at…

Space Shuttle Endeavor

We learned about her history and her incredible journey to Los Angeles. All fees and admission are included with the trip. After our visit with the space shuttle we took a short ride through the Hollywood Hills and into Griffith Park which is the home of the famous

Griffith Observatory

Backdrop to numerous movies and historic landmark for decades, this monument houses the Zeiss Telescope and has one of the best views in all of Los Angeles. It also has one of the closest unobstructed views of the iconic Hollywood Sign. This is Hollywood at its finest.

After these two stops we will had an extended stop-over at Universal City Walk. With over 30 restaurants and some of the trendiest shops in LA, this is also the new home of the Hollywood Entertainment Show “Extra” with San Diego native Mario Lopez, who we actually got to meet.

From the hills of Hollywood to the to the Valley of Tar. Our next stop was The La Brea Tar Pits. This 23 acres in the center of the LA basin is a gateway to pre-historic times. These pits have spit up wooly mammoths, Sabre Tooth Cats, and dinosaur bones. We were able to stroll through pre-historic times.
To conclude the tour, we took a ride down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Wow! What a day.

This trip included transportation, parking fees, Entry fees, snacks, soft drinks, and a very special beverage of the day;)
What? All that for only $40
Only at Fred’s Playland
