The imitation stone facade of Dutch Wonderland was built by a potato farmer in 1963. The park has 34 rides and Duke's Lagoon water park, as well as shows and games for children. The Kingdom Coaster and Joust roller coasters are favorites, along with the traditional carnival rides, such as bumper cars. For a glimpse of the past, visit Exploration Island, which is home to 15 early animatronic dinosaurs that growl and bow as you walk the Prehistoric Path.

  • We took our granddaughter for a fun day. It has been a few years, maybe 5 since we visited last. Price is high for a small kids theme park. Their website could be better as well, tough to use via phon...  more »

  • Great park if you have small kids. It's not so big that they get tired of walking. My girls are 8 and 5. They're the perfect ages for this park. Older kids might not enjoy it as much. The water park i...  more »

  • I was impressed. For a smaller independent park, Dutch Wonderland punched above its class. There were an abundance of family friendly attractions. While I was a little disappointed my visit happened before the opening of their newest attraction, the available offerings were plenty entertaining. The lines were short to non-existent during my visit. The staff were sensitive to this and made it easy to quickly shuffle back for a second ride when there was no one else in the queue.
  • This amusement park is great for small children. I use to take my kids there when they were little. The lines were never long when I went during summer weekends. There are 2 diving shows that are fun to watch.
  • Dutch wonderland is more than just an amusement park. It is a memorable place for the whole family to enjoy. I've been going since I was a child and I couldn't wait to take my own kids. We went on mother's day weekend and we did the breakfast with the characters and had first access to the park. It was a beautiful day and we can't wait to go back!
  • I have been taking my daughter to this park since she was 1 years old and we love it! Perfect for young kids! Cant wait for the end of April when it opens for the season!!
  • Kids love it here.. very age appropriate for kids up to about 13. Pack your lunch; it's cheaper; picnic tables outside to sit and eat.
