Haven't been here in a couple years - but it is much cleaner and nicer than it used to be. They have added a couple more nice rides and more food options. BTW The only reason why I rated it as average is because the Swamp Fox was closed....that was really the main reason we went. I would ask beforehand... More

If your child is in between the height chart they may be very disappointed. They do not tell you that many of the rides they must be below 52 inches to ride at all and then to ride by themselves they need to be taller than 58 inches. So many of the rides couldn't be ridden and the price for... More

We enjoyed ourselves even though we did not get on the rides. But we enjoyed the walk. We visited a restaurant and we enjoyed the hotdogs there ad the cold lemonade.

We are from OHIO where we live near one of the largest amusement parks. Although my children were surprised by how small FK was…they had a great time. We spent the day at the water park…which is very small. And they need more restrooms! The lady who worked at the front gate was NOT a very friendly person. She really... More

My 14 year old son can't ride with his 4 year old sister who is 40 inches because any rides 42 inches or lower must require an ADULT. I have 4 kids and me and my husband wanted to sit this out let the kids enjoy themselves and not to mention save a buck. But unfortunately my husband had to... More

We visited the Family Kingdom theme park at night and it remained open until midnight. There were a large number of rides my daughter could ride alone and did not require adult supervision; she rode with other kids when the ride would accommodate other riders. Fun, fun, fun; I will return.

We've been to Family Kingdom twice, & enjoy it for the most part. I agree with those that say it is best for kids under 12. My two complaints are that the big roller coaster shouldn't have a 54 inch height requirement, & that the prize winning booths are too expensive. My 7 year old son can ride bigger coasters... More

Our kids loved the rides and the bracelets to ride all they wanted! Line ups were short and lots of variety for them. They found the big rollercoaster and the twist and shout rough but overall fun. Park was clean and pretty at night all lit up. Restrooms good.
