Check out Knoebel's Grove in Elysburg PA. There are no parking or entrance fees, so the whole family can go, including grandma! If all she wants to ride is the carousel, she can purchase tickets (and the Grand Carousel is one of the few left to have an operating ring catch, once popular -- you can tell if the outside horses don't go up and down, it was once a ring-catch carousel). Sorry, I always effuse when if comes to carousels....
As for roller coasters, Knoebels is known for rescuing old rides, to wit, The Phoenix (no irony intended!), an old wooden RC from Texas. There are several other RCs, including a modern one that has metal track that goes straight up and straight down -- AND, here's the Coup de Grace -- Knoebels spent years reviving a type of trackless roller coaster! There were about 9 of these RCs in the US, way back before lots of safety requirements (haha, but true) but there were none that were still operating, so it took years to work out the details....it's like a tobaggan, and I have to say, it's not terrifying (I haven't ridden it yet, but I base my judgment of observing riders when the ride was still new and the lines were long, and nobody was screaming).

Anyway, it would be a relatively cheap road trip. There's tent and cabin camping adjacent to the park, and even some tiny houses to rent privately nearby. Columbia County is the world's covered bridge capital, and not-too-far-away Rickett's Glen is a hike along 20 or so waterfalls. Kids, or even adults can get handstamps on certain days (limitless rides, except the rollercoasters), there's a vintage Crystal Pool and a vintage mini golf course, vintage coal-powered trains, lots of trees, a creek running through, a coal museum, picnic areas, vintage (working) calliopes throughout the park, and I am hoping they will reinstate allowing dogs on some of the rides (dogs are allowed in the park on leash). What other park does that?

Lastly, the park is regularly rated #1 nationwide on some categories, and almost always is second overall, only to Ohio's Cedar Point....
