We went in wrong season, it should be best in Summer and Spring. Even then, my 6 year old has got immense fun out there. They made a skate ring inside the park and there are loads to activities for the kids during season.

After visiting Storybook Gardens as a kid I was hesitant to return. The new addition of the jumping pillow, pirate ship and spray pad makes this a great family destination for younger and school age kids. Rides aren't worth the money since they are just your average carnival rides but the shows are great!

This story book kingdom is in the heart of spring park. For the price and convenience it is a delight for children and adults.

Best part of the day for the kids by far was the giant jumping thingie. I don't remember what they call it lol. They loved the outdoor wooden playground too. My girls were 5 & 3 at the time and had a blast. The rides were mediocre but a good way to kill a few hours. They loved the splash... More

I hadn't been to Storybook since I was a kids and didn't expect it to be better. It was perfect. The trees have grown and there is lots of shaded areas. The playgrounds are good for all kids ages. And the cost was pretty decent!

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
