Storybook gardens is an annual tradition for our family. The kids (ages 10 & 12 now) love the blue bouncy pillow. They spend hours on there and the adults have fun too! It is almost like a huge trampoline. We were disappointed with the shade cover that was installed. We were not able to bounce as high as we wanted.... More

Great for kids ages 1-9 if you are looking for outdoors activities. It is a good deal to purchase seasonal pass, if living in London area. Plan on spending 2 hours each time. The only problem is short evening hours, the park is open really in "office hours" which overlaps with school/ work schedule on weekdays. My kids enjoyed rides,... More

Never disappointing! The kids are so entertained - we love coming year-round! There is a waterpark in the summer, skating in the winter and there are so many things to do and explore that the kids could go every day and still love it!

If you have very young children, 3-6 they will love this place. It's a short trip from Michigan or New York and offers a trip back in time with murals, items featured in some of our favorite stories. I'm not a child and still enjoy it.

I've been attending Storybook for over 50 years. I remember Slippery the seal and the three little pigs, the train and all the other storybook characters from my childhood child. Now after attending with my own children 20-30 years ago and my grandchildren recently the tradition continues. It might not be the same attraction (although a miniature train ride is... More

Great afternoon at Storybook Gardens, they enjoyed the rides and fun watching the animals. The water park was great for small children, and lots of parking.

This is a great place for young children. The rides are a bargain and are not overpriced. There is a good water park and lots of picnic facilities we liked it there,

the amenities are terrific for kids aged 2-7. The bouncy castle and play structures were really well designed. splash pad was also terrific and gives you a bit of variety for things to do. Rides were perfect for our youngsters. One really fatal flaw of storybook gardens is the complicated fees at the cashier. As a result, a small queue... More

Went to Storybook Gardens last week with our four grandchildren aged 7, 5, 4 and 3. The cost for admission for the 4 kids and 3 adults was around $50. The attraction was age appropriate for all of our kids and would be until maybe aged 10. Lots to see and do included in your admission. I wonder though if... More
