Just the right size place for younger kids (12 and under)

For those with young children and perhaps a few coupons/discount deals, this is a fun way to spend a summer day! However, it is definitely more for the kids, so paying full price... read more

For those with young children and perhaps a few coupons/discount deals, this is a fun way to spend a summer day! However, it is definitely more for the kids, so paying full price as an adult feels a bit inappropriate. We go when we have free tickets/discounts only, otherwise it would be too expensive in my opinion. There is plenty... More

Title says it all. Prices are a bit high, but in line with normal amusement park range. This place is truly a "Kingdom for Kids," with a heavy emphasis on the kids. Not a lot for the big kids, but tons for the small fry. I can also say as a former employee, that the focus truly is on family... More

Come often with my littles under 10. Great trip to entertain them for a few hours. My older two have outgrown the park.

My wife and I have bringing kids to Dutch Wonderland for years. First our children, back in the 80's and now our grandkids (and we have a dozen of them). The park is best suited for the younger children. When kids approach 8 or so, the are ready for bigger, more thrilling rides. The park is clean. The water park... More

I thought Dutch Wonderland was a great experience with the family. My son was 2 at the time and he had a great time. I thought the park was surprisingly very clean! They have a good mix of rides for toddlers to young children. There is a water splash area to cool off. If your looking for thrilling roller coasters... More

My kids range in ages 3-7. My 7 year old is kind of over the rides here and would prefer Hershey Park. However, it is local, and I always get the season pass. It is a fun place to go in the evenings in the summer. The waterpark is fun, but, compared to Hershey, very small. We are looking forward... More

This is a fun place for families with young kids. There are many things to do together as well as some kids only rides. I recommend buying tickets either online ahead of time to save money, or look for coupons. Other discounted tickets can be found at area grocery stores, etc. There is a little water park if you go...

We used to visit every few years while my daughter was young. This time we came as a family with her two boys, 4 & 6. Still great for up to about 10 year olds.
