  • Fun rides, amazing Ferris Wheel (you go around three times) and fun for all ages, though the rides are older and kind of squashed together. Expensive at about $5 per ride on average ($3-$6) Lots of....  more »
  • This is The Go To for rides been coming here forever. I am glad they moved away from the tickets but would rather see a all night pass to ride all night one fee! Families would love this!  more »
  • Fun spot for the kids, with a couple adult rides thrown in. We took advantage of unlimited rides for 3 hours for $25. My 5 and 3 year old daughters had a great time. I took a tally, and we certainly got our money's worth out of the deal. Most of the outdoor rides have a height limit of 42" for the child to ride alone, so my 5yr old just made the mark and loved them all. My little one enjoyed the smaller kid rides that were "indoors". Most rides are 4-5 tickets, so take advantage of any deals they have for bundles or unlimited, as they will add up quickly! Overall, it is a fun time for the kids, and a nice way to spend an afternoon.
  • Open at 1 pm. Has moved to card to hold tickets for rides. Can still redeem the old paper tickets. Daughter is 36 inches and able to do a fair amount of rides. Kids had a blast. Half of park inside a building that gives shade but no ac.
