Very clean park in scenic Lancaster. Lots of fun rides and a waterpark all in one. Designed for younger kids so no huge coasters, but still fun for even the adults. Not terribly crowded. A great time!

Visited with my 5 year old daughter and parents. All four of us had fun and there were rides that ALL of us went on. There is food right in the middle of the park, which is perfect for when you get hungry. The diving princess show was one of my daughter's favorite things. We also paid a little extra... More

We had season pass to Dutch Wonderland for 3 years until my son grew out of it when he experienced Hershey Park at the ripe age of 6. But for those 3 years, we definitely got our money's worth, with the summer water park, fall Halloween, and winter wonderland. It's definitely a place for kids between the ages of 2-7,... More

We were turned on to Dutch Wonderland by some friends who go there several times a year (coming from DC). We wanted to do something within driving distance for our children (ages 8, 6, 5) over the Christmas break and Winter Wonderland was perfect. We took advantage of the preview the night before (which is a fantastic idea and much... More

I hadn't been to Dutch Wonderland in years, until I found out that they had a Christmas event. Everything is decorated with Christmas lights, and there are ride specials, and pictures with Santa. We had a great time with our kid and friends kids. The rides haven't changed much in all those years, but it was still a good time.

Dutch Wonderland is definitely a great place to visit for kids. At the time we visited we had 3 kids, 7 and under and they all had a great time. The rides were good and everything was clean. All of my kids loved the water park. I have been to Storyland in NH and think that Storyland is better. Dutch... More

Go while they are young! My son is 5 years old and 42" tall. He could go on every ride in the place, some by himself and some with a "responsible rider". In a few years, he will be too big for the kiddie rides and not impressed with the big rides.

We had heard great things about Dutch Wonderland, but hadn't had the opportunity to go until now. It was the PERFECT adventure for our family and our friends, four adults and four kids, aged 2, 4 and 6. The kids are ALL family friendly and even my two year old could go on almost all of the rides. My 6... More
