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.


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)

  • Inexpensive day pass for kids and grown-ups together. Near end of season, not many people in line. Kids can ride as many time as they want. Some ride controllers might be too rough to small kids though. This can be improved. Most controllers were very good to kids.
  • What's not to love about this place?! Spent the day there last week and made memories that will last a lifetime. Still the best wooden roller coaster in the US! Prices are fair and the atmosphere takes you back to your childhood. Can't wait to get back again next summer.
