We took our 3 year old grandson there for the day and met a friend with their 3 year old grandson. It was great! The boys loved it, it was safe and they could "shake their sillies out." We had been told that Fairyland was run down, but we didn't think so. The boys loved the train, ferris wheel, live... More

We took our two granddaughters there for the day while they were staying with us. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day, the activities + they could run around and be safe :)

My first visit to this place and I was expecting an older theme park in need of updating. This is true and it isn't true at the same time. Yes, some areas could use some sprucing up but this place has a soul and is something magical. I can imagine the management worrying about sacrificing these important things. Yes, it's... More

I found a great deal on living social for the entire family. I had never heard of this place and my 3 little girls were anxious to go. Upon arrival, the place was packed. There were so many other local elementary schools attending at the same time. I highly advise that you go during the weekdays. My kids had a... More

We could see where Mr. Disney got a lot of his inspiration for Disneyland in Anaheim. The entry fee was well-priced. Our son loved it there! We'll definitely be back. The only thing I would've liked to have seen is a better selection in the gift shop. There were several toys, yes, but the only distinctively Fairyland items were t-shirts... More

One of my friend recommended this place. Reviews looked good as well. Went there during the long weekend and was 100% disappointed. It's a very small place compared to other themed parks you can find around. They have set up's which looks like places from fairy tale storiey books, that's it. There have two small rides for little ones, two... More

Bringing my three year old nephew here is a joy. It is an amusement park for little ones! do not expect flashy or loud or high tech, this place literally has not changed much since it was built, but those charming instillations straight out of a story book would fill any five year old with wonder. This place is not... More

My kids 7,3&2 had a blast, the rides were just the right size. They loaned me a stroller which was nice. They just really need so one to drop some of that Silicon Valley $$ on them so they can really update it and clean it up nice. My son loved Jack & Jill Hill.

Walt Disney stopped here long before Disneyland and liked the place so much he was moved to start his magnum opus Disneyland, the Happiest, costliest place on Earth. In one of the tunnels there is a little Mickey Mouse. There are always delighted and excited kiddoes in the park attraction,this is one of the childhood delights of Oakland and the... More
