Good for little kids

Great place to take your under 7 year old kids. There is plenty to do and keep them occupied. Great rides for the little ones.

While my niece seemed to enjoy this place - its charm is that it is built for small kids, our adult eyes longed for better care taking... word was that since we attended a few years back, renovations have occurred... if so, it may be worth the trip.

My niece had her fifth birthday at Fairyland. The cupcakes,,ice cream, gift bags, and cookies were all very nice and the separate party area with a slide very convenient. There is tons to do, lots of play centers plus puppet shows, story time, and magicians . There is a train and a food center. Area well secured. Great play day... More

I have been wanting to go to Fairyland for a long time, but never had my children with me on my visits. I finally got in! The retro fairy tail theme park is very cute! My 7 year old was probably not as impressed as I was, but we certainly had fun riding the train.The height limit for the kiddie... More

We went here for the day (children are 5yrs and 4yrs) I had to drag them out of there!! They had a great day with everything really aimed at their age. My only negative feedback would be re the animals. I didn't feel they needed to be there, no one was really interested in them and they would be so... More

This place is located in the lake/park area of Oakland. We went late in the day on a Thursday, actually just an hour before closing. It is a tiny place so very easy to see it all in a short time. Only $8 to get in so if you have a kid melt down, it won't be much of a... More

Great little park for toddlers. Everything is mini so it fits her perfectly. The mini train ride, carousel, storybook structures, storybook statues, and walking paths. Puppet show is entertaining, she'll sit through most of it. She is in a playing with keys phase, so she gets excited about putting her special Fairland key into the music boxes. We usually find...

Spent the whole day with a 3 and 4 year old at Fairyland. The entire park is geared towards young kids (maybe 10 and under?). Nice to be able to take the little ones somewhere that has rides and attractions suitable to their age. $8 per person entrance seemed reasonable. For an additional $3 you receive a magic key that...

I've been to many a day trip with family and friends as they introduce their little one's to this magical, fairytale come to life park. Children literally get a "key" to unlock the stories to their surprise and delight. Great Summer Theatre programs for little actors in the making and theatre fans alike. This is a must stop if you...
