A great amusement and water park all in one especially for those 10 and under. Teens will be too old for this park. Consists mainly of young families. Plan to stay the entire day! When you tire of the rides- enjoy the pool/water park area. Definitely worth the price of admission. If you own a local coupon book- this park... More

Excellent little park for my almost 4 year old. She was able to go on almost every ride. There is plenty of shade and the bathrooms were clean. I went in May before the water park was open and on a group discount. $9.50 for kids, $5 for adults. A total bargain. She had a blast and we didn't have... More

It has a small town feel. It's not fancy, nor does it have any high tech rides. But the kids will love it. The prices are great. I bring my own food when I visit with my kids, an we get ice cream from the Hershey shop as a treat. Overall I love it there.

Place is a little out dated, and never a new ride...all rides outdated. If you have older children...not for them. The water park is much better, and the only reason I give this 3 stars because if can be used by any age, and more up to date. Bathrooms need some help, and the food there...I have had better at...

Went here with my nephews one summer day. Park has free parking - a definite plus. Rides are more like banal carnival rides. Rides are geared towards small children. This is definitely not for the thrill seeker. The waterpark was good with some cool slides but was overcrowded. There are also rocks all over the place which makes it tough... More

This was such a hidden gem to find. Perfect day trip for the family. Supporting a family run business instead of a giant chain water park was a bonus! I suggest packing lunch for added family time at the picnic area!

Land of Make Believe may not be the biggest or fanciest amusement park, but it is perfect for families with small children. All the rides are geared towards younger children. There is a nice water park- also not too big- with a lazy river and some fun slides for the older kids too. You won't find the prices for food... More

Well I must say my family and I had a great time at the Land of make believe. The regular rides are more focused on little kids. My son loved the train ride around the park. The food was GREATTTTTTT lol. But the little kid in me and my wife came out with the water park. The rapids was sweet... More
