Amusement Park

From classic favorites like The Legend Roller Coaster and Ferris Wheel, to modern attractions like the Log Flume and Water Wars, Historic Arnolds Park offers exciting rides for all ages.

Raceway

Unleash your inner speed demon at the Arnolds Park Raceway. With three exciting tracks, there’s a race for every pace, so everybody can enjoy the wind whipping through their hair.

The Queen II

The Queen II Excursion Boat is the only venue of its kind in the Iowa Great Lakes. Transform your event into a unique on-the-water experience, enhanced by the traditional ambiance of the lakes area. The Queen II can accommodate up to 200 guests and offers the excitement of a guided tour of West Lake Okoboji’s beautiful bays and beaches.

Maritime Museum

View rare artifacts and immerse yourself in the lore of the Iowa Great Lakes. See a rare collection of antique wooden boats and view a boat pulled from the depths of West Okoboji. Browse the new reproduction of the “Okoboji Store.” Or peruse retro ride parts, signs and other souvenirs left from Historic Arnolds Park’s earlier days.

Whether young or old, an Okoboji native or a first-time visitor, the Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum is an integral part of your Historic Arnolds Park experience.

Preservation Plaza and Roof Garden

Back in the day, big bands and old-time rock n’ roll ruled the stage at the fabled Roof Garden. While the sound has changed, the spirit remains the same. Each summer, Historic Arnolds Park hosts a FREE concert series at Preservation Plaza and the Roof Garden. (July 16th will require admission at the gate)

  • Went as a family. Love that park entrance is free! Purchased the ultimate day pass online for our 3-year old which includes unlimited rides plus money for snacks and games. The pass allows an adult...

  • We have visited this park a few years ago when the children in our family were younger. I didn't have great memories of the park, and was hesitant to return. However, with the kids being taller now...

  • This is absolutely the BEST place for younger kids! Parking? Free. Food? Tons of reasonably priced options within walking distance. Come in and out as you please with parking near the park to run back to the car for water, snacks, etc. Only pay for those who are riding the rides. Mom & Dad can get in for free and kids under 42'' get a free "chaperone" pass with their wristband for mom or dad to ride with them where needed. Waiting in line? We waited maybe 20 minutes TOTAL over two days. Sunny day? Rides for little kids are strategically shaded. Games? Totally winnable - kids go home happy. The staff are beyond amazing and it seems to be their goal to help everyone there have a great time. For $55 we had all we needed for a full day of fun - unlimited rides for our daughter plus games and food. I just simply can't say enough good things about this place.
  • Kids loved it, for a small town it was great. I've been to many amusement parks in the US, some bigger for sure, but this one had heart. The workers were friendly,and helpful. There were no big shows, still the views of the lake were wonderful. Lots of different food and drinks to choose from. No charge to get in,and inexpensive day passes. Will look forward to our next visit ☺️.
