Morgan's Wonderland reviews
My family goes every Halloween to this wonderful place. Admission is only $5 per person (or you can donate 4 canned goods per person before October 30 for free admission). There are rides and really great candy (which they give out in great abundance). It's a safe environment that's not scary so even little children can go. And of course the entire experience holds up the goal of Morgan's Wonderland and is inclusive to EVERYONE! People with disabilities are welcomed and shown a good time. All the rides and experiences can be had by all.
This place is perfect for a family who has a disabled member everything accessible, big enough park to run around and get tired. Park is open all year long. They allow you to bring your own food and I love that. They have a water park area I've never been to but it is seasonal which is open from May- August and I hear its a blast, one day hope to take my special needs sister and my son during the open time. Wonderful, helpful, and great employees.
