I took my 5 year old grandson to Land of Make Believe. I think he is the perfect age for this park and here is why. He is old enough to enjoy all of the large water slides and young enough to also enjoy all the kiddie rides. There are 7 water slides that even adults would really enjoy, although... More

I remember this place from a generation ago when it was a crappy little park with fake plastic characters in front of fake houses and thought they had long since gone out of business. Then I saw their commercials on TV. We went there today to discover it has evolved into a crappy big place. My alarm bells went on... More

This has been about the tenth time we have returned to The Land Of Make Believe we have always had much fun. The water slides are exciting, unfortunately the lazy river line was too long for us to wait, but we still managed to have a wonderful time. One suggestion is the where old shoes or sneaker, the park has... More

I wish we were younger and could get going quicker in the morning. This park opens at 10 AM, but we are almost two hours away. By the time we arrived around 12:30, the park was crowded with no available lounge chairs in the water park area. We still were able to show our granddaughter a good time, however. Eventually...

We visited with our almost 2 year old on a Friday in July. Despite the heat, the park was not as crowded as I expected. Here is the run down: Pros: - Free Parking - Can bring your own food/coolers. We left our cooler in the car and traveled back for a quick snack but most families took advantage of... More

Since 2012 my family and I have gone very year to this toddler heaven. My kids absolutely love everything about it. I will say if you want to maximize your time and get a lounge chair by the pool you have to get there early esp on holiday weekends. The pool is perfect because the whole thing is knee deep... More

Just wrote a whole review only for the app to lose it. Annoying. This park is for little kids. Don't bring a teenager and expect great things to happen. Also don't expect to find thrilling rides as an adult(although the water slides are great) I would say come with kids 2yrs to maybe 10yrs old. After that, it's time to... More

This place is great for small children between 1.5 - 8 yrs. The dry park has a few small rides, great train ride around the park, & hayride. The water park has a very big pool that is less than 2'..there is a pirate ship, where kids can climb up on & then slide into the water..they also have several... More
