Once the home to the Flume, the Corkscrew, the Cyclone, the Freefall and an assortment of other thrilling attractions, Warwick, Rhode Island’s Rocky Point State Park is now a serene 120 acres of spectacular coastal retreat. Seems everywhere you point a camera or a phone, you’ll capture an awesome photo. You won’t catch a splashdown on the Flume or a Cyclone car cresting the lift hill, but you’re nearly certain to snag a magical image or two.
