Offering a variety of rides and water attractions, Land of Make Believe & Pirate's Cove offers activities that are ideal for children younger than age 12. First opened in 1954, the amusement park has a long history and is reminiscent of decades past. Try out some of the rides, including the junior-sized roller coaster, Tilt-A-Whirl, merry-go-round, and the Civil War train that loops around the park. If rides aren't your cup of tea, visit the Petting Zoo or take in the interactive Middle Earth Theater, mazes, and hayrides. Water attractions like the Lazy River, wading pool, and waterslides keep you cool. Recently the park installed some more thrilling water rides, such as Pirate's Plunge and the Black Hole, which may be more attractive to parents or teens. Outside food is allowed inside, so bring a cooler if you like. To visit Land of Make Believe & Pirate's Cove on your trip to Hope, use our Hope trip builder website.
Land of Make Believe & Pirate's Cove reviews
During this pandemic, it was great to be out and about. We were there yesterday, September 1, 2010. Not crowded, pleasant experience as always there. Everyone is trying as hard as they can to do..... more »
This is a great "starter" amusement park for younger children. The restrooms and facilities were very clean and well maintained. We also spent time in the water park which is also geared perfectly towards younger children with water slides/rides perfect for teens. Overall, a very good experience. Worth noting, our kids were 7 (nearly 8) and 11. There were some rides neither could go on due to height restrictions but most were accessible to both. There is a decent variety of rides.
Excellent amusement and water park. It’s a charming setting and very neat. Good size. Not at all overwhelming but not so small the kids are done one time through. Nice ride options. Staff friendly. Prices reasonable.
