Beachland Amusements, colloquially known as The South Beach Rides, was an arcade and kiddie park that operated in Staten Island, New York from 1941-2006. Originally located on the South Beach Boardwalk, it moved to its most recent location on Sand Lane in 1953 after the City of New York banned commercial businesses from operating on the boardwalk.[1]

Since August 2013 a 9,600 sq. ft. Key Food supermarket has occupied the site of this former amusement area and arcade.[2]
