Treated my son, daughter in law and 4 grandkids last Friday. Suggest to find online discounts to help with the cost. Very friendly staff, helpful, clean. Rides appropriate for my 2 1/2 y.o. granddaughter up to my 10 y.o. grandson. I went on several rides too. Nice as a grandparent I can enjoy myself since rides are not too big.... More

This Amusement Park is not that big of a place, the rides are truly geared towards the really small children (under 12 years old). The price to get into this place is over priced for what you get in the amount of rides and the type of rides, adults should be discounted because there is not much you can ride... More

I have kids 10,8,3, and newborn. Almost 200 to get in waited to get in over 45mins, very narrow paths, bathrooms for boys very small, smelled lime urine and where very dirty. They couldn't even get the paper towels in the dispenser correctly. Food was very very expensive for what you got. Spent 70 for lunch, I almost fell to... More

We had a great time at Dutch Wonderland with our twins (age 5). I loved that they were able to ride/participate in everything there. Parking was free which was rare for a theme park. It was a smaller park so it was not too hard to get from one area to another. Rides were more like carnival rides, but in... More

This is a delightful park filled with fascination for tots and young children...and a chance to re-live your childhood for all adults. Lose yourself in the sound of the carousel, or in the splash of the dolphin show. A delight for one and all.

It was a fun day! Great for small kids! My son is 9 years old and had a lot of fun. It was just the right size for him and not overwhelming. The shows were cute.

My boys are 9 and 11. We make at least 1 annual trip to Cedar Point or Kings island. They ride practically everything that their height will allow. DW was fun for about 4 hours for them, but then they were ready for something more thrilling. I think 6-9 year olds would be the perfect age.

I love Dutch Wonderland. Many memories have been made here. I have to say my star rating went down for two reasons. First, Dino Island, the new attraction, seemed rushed to me in terms of it's creation. It destroyed the peaceful flower gardens which we loved. It has the Turnpike over here now and that ride is a madhouse now.... More
