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

The only complaint we had was that there was no mobility scooter rental available for Grandpa who had a lot of walking to do. Other then that , it's a great place to take the kids. They will love it!

I went with my 3 & 14 yrs old. It was a great time with lots to do. The place is well maintained. Both my kids enjoyed themselves. Plenty of room to sit and watch the children play. The play structures are well monitored. I was a little disappointed you had to pay extra for the rides! Would go agin!

We took my 5 year old Grandaughter and 2 year old Grandson. The rides were a hit with the 5 year old. There was less for the 2 year old to do but he enjoyed what he could do. The grounds were nice--flowers, bridges and streams. Great place to stimulate verbal interaction. I was surprised at some of the nursery... More

Good place for grandparents to take younger grandkids. Lots to do from rides (these cost a ticket), to a splash pad and climbing structures. Reasonable prices on some food. Try going during the week, not as busy.
