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.

  • Great clean family fun. Perfect for small ones. The park is just the right size and has plenty for small kids to do. Our daughter is 5 and was fully entertained the whole day! No roaming packs of rowdy teens here. Just families with children, I don’t think I heard one cuss word all day, unless me or my husband said one 😂. So it’s a great atmosphere for wholesome fun.
  • We went for the winter wonderland on a Wednesday between Christmas and New Year's. The crowds weren't too bad especially when we got there right it open and the kids were able to tackle all the rides that they wanted, that were open with only some of the things having slightly longer waits. I'd recommend the park for kids under 11 but our 10-year-olds in the family still had a good time. Food is similar to other amusement parks at around $14 for burger and fries. If you go to the Mill Creek indoor dining it's nice place to warm up and you can get a free fountain water so it save you some money on drinks. I'd skip the all you can eat pizza and pasta as it's $19 for adults. Definitely the sky ride, the train and the turnpike cars are best done at night for the winter wonderland as they have lights and decorations to see. Note the skyride is extremely slow. We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and overall we had an enjoyable experience.
