We have been coming to Dutch Wonderland for the last few years with our children and grandchildren. It is perfect for kids from 2 to 8. The rides are safe and the water splash park is the best. We love to hang and see and few shows and do rides then go get cooled off at the splash park. You... More

What a great place for families with young children. We visited on a Sunday and it was crowded but we never felt overwhelmed by people. They have so many rides, shows, and areas to visit, you need more than one day....seriously. Tons of food options but it is expensive. $7.99 for fries. Some snacks were reasonable amusement park prices, like... More

Had a wonderful time with grandkids - 6 and 8 years old - plus me (Grandma) and Grandpa and Aunt & Uncle & Mommy on Sunday. We were conflicted about going because the weather forecast was 50-50 for showers, and, boy am I glad we went. Lots of people apparently gave it a pass and the park was half full,... More

I grew up going to Dutch Wonderland so I have always had fond memories of it. With a toddler now, we were really excited to take her here for the first time. Dutch Wonderland is the perfect amusement park for younger children because everything is geared towards them - from rides to amusements. It's large, but not overly large that... More

There was plenty to do for a day with a 3 year old and a 7 year old. The rides are not in a real organized order. They are spread out. My kids loved the water park and the dinosaurs. The water show was great. Our kids loved it. It is a bit overpriced, but I used discount tickets and... More

Very nice sized park for families with pre school kids. Lots of great kids rides but some faster ones too for parents and grandparents. It's a nice manageable size so you can do everything you want in a day. They also offer a preview the night before your visit. This is an old fashion park and it is really cute.... More

Had a great time in Dutch Wonderland with our two little ones (2 and 4). There were tons of age-appropriate activities and even though it was REALLY crowded, we never had to wait too long for rides. The one big problem was the food available, which was WAY overpriced and pretty low-quality. You kind of figure with the entrance fee... More

This was a great amusement park. There are very little lines and it was very easy to have my son participate in the rides. The perk is that under 2 years old, get in free.

We had a terrific time yesterday at Dutch Wonderland. The atmosphere is family friendly and very safe. They have a nice selection of rides from thrilling (for kids) to mellow for a nice break. The grounds are beautiful with plenty of shade and charming, winding pathways. Some good tips for visiting the park...every food stand that serves fountain sodas will... More
