We mostly stayed at the Kiddieland area which was completely under staffed. The rides were perfect for my children 6 and under. There are roughly 12 rides total and there were only 2 people working at 3 in the afternoon so the children were constantly waiting to get on a ride. I know waiting is inevitable but that hour of...

The rides are old and expensive. The grounds are dirty and the "beach" was filthy! The kids were even bored with this "attraction". The lake was pretty from afar, but up close was dirty. Yuck. Waste of time and money!

This park has been around since I was a kid(60 years ago) at least, and some of the area really looks like it is old. The grandkids loved the rides and arcade. The restrooms were dirty and in poor repair. The beach itself is beautiful. I know they are trying to update and I hope they can find the money... More

Such a shame it has not been kept up. The kiddie rides are expensive, cute for the little ones, but the best area in the park. I will not let my older grandkids even ride the adult rides for safety reasons. The blacktop through out the park is in desperate need of repair & I am surprised that no one... More

Rides weren't open yet, but we walked around checking it out, seeing what there was, the game room was open, we didn't do any of the games but we did get to use the photo booth, now that was cool. 4 poses for 5 dollars. Not bad. But the parking is now a dollar an hour, put money in a... More

The Sylvan Beach Amusement Park is a small and limited play area for kids who are probably younger than those you'd take to a "Six Flags" park. The number of rides is small (but fun), and the whole place is kind of "campy." It also backs up right against the lake (Oneida), so you could go swimming after playing in... More

We visited Sylvan Beach Amusement park on a Saturday afternoon. We read the reviews on here and were unsure of what to expect. I knew that we weren't going to a Six Flags or a Disney park but a park that brings you back to your childhood. The rides are a little old and could use a little refurbishment like... More

This park is very dated and most rides rides are dilapidated. For 8 and older, there are 12 rides that does not include the bumper boats (those actually cost extra). You can either pay $24/day or buy a seven day season pass ticket for $100.00. No other place in the United States has a season pass only good for 7... More
