  • My girls (8 & 5 yrs old) absolutely loved this place! Their imaginative minds were in heaven running from one story scene to the other pretending. There were plenty of benches to sit on, but it was really fun to go through the areas with them. It really is free, but we also paid a few dollars per person to ride the train. We spent about 2 hours here. It's definitely worth checking out if your near Rapid City and have little kids.
  • This place is wonderful!!! We visited South Dakota for 3 days. We came to this amazing wonderful park two days in a row. The best part is its FREE. They do have a train ride for $1,and snacks you can purchase inside the park. But there was plenty of things for my daughter to do.
