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. Planning Lancaster trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Amazing theme park. It is a great theme park for younger children. I would say you would start to outgrow the park when you reach the age of about ten. Lots of the rides offer seats for parents to to ride the rides with their children. And these seats work for taller children like teenagers. There are many rides adults would like too like the new ride Merlin's Mayhem. It is the newest ride in the park and it doesn't disappoint. I've been going to this park since childhood and it is still a great time for me and my family.
This was our first time there with our 3.5 year old she was able to ride the majority of the rides. Park is just the right size and lots to do for the little one. Was recommended by friends and glad we went. We bought our tickets on line and we were able to preview the park the previous day for 3 hours before closing. Will definitely be coming back, don't forget to get your hand stamped so u can come back to the park same day also if it rains and the park closes u can get rain passes.
