Took our just turned 5 year old and almost 2 year old to DW. Parking is free and there is VIP parking for $10 but it's really not needed since everywhere you park is just a quick walk to the entrance. Feel free to bring in snacks, sippys and bottles, but no meals/sandwiches. A couple next to me was arguing... More

We were there for about 4 to 5 hours total. My kids are 6 & 9 and they were bored with the rides. The water area held their interest for about 2 hours & then they were ready to go. We did not eat there so I can not comment on the food. There is a graet steak house down... More

A great park for young children with a variety of rides. The water park is a wonderful addition to the original park. There were lots of benches to rest on and several eating areas. Unfortunately you are not permitted to take your own food into the park.

Nice park geared for kids, water area is not isolated yet nicely separated - not having to walk with people wearing bathing suits all day... Pretty friendly staff - although "some" are older and one worker closed up her ride earlier than others, so to be able to close up and leave ahead of time... Other were more courteous. It... More

I don't know when the people went that said the lines were 5 minutes long. We went on a weekday and waited an average of 25 minutes (some 40). Three of the shows were cancelled that day. The Senior price is high considering we only went on 4 rides. That said, the kids enjoyed it. There was plenty of shade.... More

It was great, clean & kids loved it! Close to hotel, although I'd never go to the Lancaster Host again. The other hotels nearby were better. In my earlier review, we checked out of the Lancaster Host & checked into the Marriott down the road.

2.5 yr old had a great time; 10 yr old okay time. Expensive when comparing to other amusement parks for what you get.

it was wonderful for my 7 year old grandson. A little pricey, however, they do give a discount for seniors!

I traveled here with my three year old son in August. Parking was very easy and free and they offer VIP parking for $10.00 additional which I did. This is great for little kids as they have a lot of rides for 3 year olds. I would not take anyone here over the age of maybe 6 or 7. Some... More

The rides are great and age-appropriate, DW staff take all of the safety precautions, as well. Even the water park has safety staff. We could have easily spent two days here - one day was barely enough. After reading much ahead of time, we wish we had known you could take water/juice and snacks into the park. The staff checks...
