Not very exciting unless the kids are very young. Lines are long and many attractions were closed when I was there. So a bit disappointing.

Standard amusement park. Nothing special. If your kids like daredevil rides they will find this worth a few hours.

If you have never been to an amusement park before in your life, then YES you can call this as one, other than that, stay away from this place please. It is BORING as hell, long lines for very boring rides. Even my daughter whom she is 10 years old now does not want to go there again... But it... More

It's a great place to bring your kids. Mine are now ages 1, 7 and 9 and we've been coming here for the past 3 years. They still like it but there are some rides that they can't be bothered anymore. To be honest, they prefer to play the games than riding the ride. TIP: Before you let your child... More

It's not Disneyland, but it has enough rides to make for a fun day for families with kids in the 5 - 12 age groups. The park also has young entertainers that add to the experience.

I've been going to Calaway Park since I was a little kid. It used to be the best thing in the world, and precisely because I was a little kid. It definitely doesn't boast any excitement for anyone over the age of 14. The roller coaster is sad, and the rest of the rides are just not that exciting. Also... More

Cal Park is a treasure for families with little kids. My children ages 3 and 1 had lots of fun here last summer. It is really geared more so for children than adults and the best part about is the admission fee at the entrance gives one unlimited access to all the rides and shows. The only thing to pay... More

We brought our four kids ages 10, 9, 3 and 2 here while on vacation. The park was busy, but we didn't have to wait too long for any of the rides. There were quite a few rides for all ages in our group. We also ate here since we bought a package that included food. It was nice to... More

I have been here on numerous occasions and it just seems over hyped and overly expensive. Its a wanna be amusement park that can be beaten by Disneyland and others. I feel that everything whether its the food or drinks are a complete rip off and might as bring your own drinks and food. It might be good to go... More
