We were so disappointed by our experience at LOMB. Upon our arrival, we discovered that credit cards other than Discover are not accepted. Quite inconvenient. Purchased tickets except for our 20 month old, for whom a ticket was not required, as is standard for theme parks. We entered the park and found old, past-their-prime rides. Rather than paved grounds, LOMB... More

Was in search of a place to take our son for summer's last hurrah so to speak.....Heard about land of make-believe from a friend and knew it would be age-appropriate for my 2 1/2 year-old son. Parking is free. When we pulled up there was a big sign stating that they do not except Visa or MasterCard due to their... More

It was a very disturbing experience. Children under age 2 do not have to pay, however, they neglect to tell you that they can't go on any rides without paying. My 23 month old grandson went to go on a cars ride and they stopped him and said he could not go on. The rude attendant told us go pay... More

Our 2 girls 3 and 8 loved the place. Our other kid, me, had fun as well. 3.5 stars is what we would like to give. Lines were short early, but by the middle of the day they were a bit long. The place started out really clean, but as the day went on and crowds came, the staff could... More

We took our 5 & 6 year old children to spend a fun filled day. It exceeded our expectations. We got a late start in the morning and still had a 2 hour drive. Made it there around noon & still had plenty of time to partake in the water park and the rides. The locker rentals were a wonderful... More

In a sad world of high-priced slick amusement parks with furries trying to use your kids to sell you photos of yourself, this is a good alternative. It's seriously old school and they're not really trying to sell you anything except tickets and fudge. The rides are fine, the water park is fine, the kids' show is fine... it's fine.... More

This place is a thro back to the past. If your kids are young they will love this place all little rides with no waiting on lines. Everything there is reasonably prices so you won't spend a fortune. The water park is a little crazier there's a lot of people and the changing area isn't organized the best but overall... More

This place is a real throwback - in very rural Hope, NJ and I'm not sure it's changed much in the last 50 years. It reminds me of something you would find in the Berkshires perhaps. I will say, however, that my 3 year old son LOVED the day we spent here. Note that we did not do the water... More

For $26 it's ok. They have lazy river, 2 pirate ships by the water park, no real pool where you can swim but just a foot of water where little kids can play. Next to the water park are amusement rides which are just the same when you go to county fairs nothing more. It's sorrounded by dirt & sand... More
