We loved the rides and the water park was fun. It was packed but you still didn't have to wait in line to long.

Always loved this place as a kid and still love it. I haven't been there for about year and I hear they have a Dinosaur area now. Sounds interesting. Dutch Wonderland is pretty at night with all the color lights.

My children have grown but my grand children now enjoy going to Dutch Wonderland. The make over by Hershey Park Management has helped bring some of the rides up to a better standard, however in my opinion it is still a very limited venue and way over priced.

It's a great family atmosphere. We often buy the tickets that for one price you can go in the evening for a few hrs.... More

Dutch Wonderland is a fun park for the under 12 set. The park is not too large and the lines move quickly and most rides can be enjoyed by all but the very littlest riders. It has a nice water park, free parking and a very safe atmosphere. We love it.

We go to Dutch Wonderland every year and the kids love it. The park is very clean especially the bathrooms. The rides are so kid friendly that I do not have to get on them with them. They have shows which were fun and gets the audience involved. You get two parks in one with the water park. Overall, we... More

Always loved having Dutch Wonderland in our backyard here in Lancaster County PA. A Big treasure and a great time. Great access, great [parking and a lot of rides but mostly for ages 3-4 years up to pre-teens. Good food access and a pavilion outside.

We visited Dutch Wonderland the Friday after Thanksgiving. It was cold but so beautiful and just perfect for my 2 - 2 year olds. The loved the train. The food was pretty expensive for what it is but that's to be expected. We will def return.

Recommend getting there before it opens during the summer. The park fills up quick and some of the lines are long. If you live in the area and are going to use the water park I would recommend the season pass.
