We just returned home from our trip to the Happy Hauntings at Dutch Wonderland. The theme itself was cute. My kids enjoyed getting to wear their costumes and the trick or treat trail was nicely done. The rides however was a completely different story. We've gone to several amusement parks before so we were used to waiting in lines. Some... More

A great deal for a combo package for both Halloween and Christmas. Clean rides, friendly staff, and easy to get in with free parking. We spent 7 hours in the park and it was not enough!!!

We come every year for the "Happy Hauntings" My daughter and I always have a great time. The park is specifically geared towards young children, parents, grandparents, but not so much teens (which I love).

She really liked the new Dinosaur area and loved exploring there. She also enjoyed the walk as we were looking at all the different dinosaurs saying "but they aren't real".......it... More

Finally a place where my 2.5 year old triplets were able to get on rides...they were afraid of the first rides, but then they got the hang of it.
