I grew up with Paul Bunyan Land on the corner greeting everyone who drove to the lakes, resorts and their cabins. It has been moved and it's just not the same. Paul Bunyan was an icon and to hide it out in the "country" is disappointing at best. If you are driving through Brainerd on your way to the cabin... More

I love this place for the nostalgia. My grandma and grandpa used to take us here when we were kids. They definitely need to update the rides. They are the same rides from when we were kids...... My boys always have a good time. The price for how many rides is ok but the adults having to pay as well... More

We took our grandchildren this Labor Day weekend for their first visit to see Paul. My husband and I had both been fans of Paul from our childhood years and had brought our kids when they were young for a visit. As always, the kids were amazed that Paul greeted them by name when they entered. From there we spent... More

Fun, but expensive. Rides are very old. Food is terrible and expensive. Tilt a whirl car came off the track while wife was on. Seems for $20 a head, some updates could be made.

We would visit the old Paul Bunyan Land when our children were young. This place brought back so many good memories. It is better than ever. I would recommend this to anyone staying in the area.

Paul Bunyan Land is on the short list of things our grandkids want to do every summer. They are geared totally to kids and our kids have a blast. Lines are short and rides are fun - for young kids. You will not find better bumper cars anywhere.

Brought my grandson here last summer and he loved it. Small enough that you're not shoulder to shoulder with other people, but plenty of attractions and rides to keep us busy for a few hours.

This is a fun little place to visit in the Brainard area on a nice day. The antiques are neatly organized in cute themed buildings. The park area is nice and clean and well organized. The rides are carnival rides and geared toward children under the age of 15. I would suggest avoiding the roller coaster and bumper cars though... More

From their web page: "Pioneer Village is the largest one man collection of antiques from the late 1800's to early 1900's in Minnesota." This is mostly rusted not cared for junk mostly piled up in buildings. A few displays in so called stores are full of cobwebs and dust. The rides are the ones from the original Paul Bunyan 60's...
