We usually visit Joyland every summer in July. While the cost is a little much for what they offer, we can always count on Joyland as a fun place to visit our favorite rides!

We went to Joyland while on visiting our family in Lubbock. It was fun and fairly inexpensive! We received free fountain drinks in the day we went (Thursday). There was no waiting time to get on rides.

We love to take the grandkids to Joyland. One price for everthing so they can ride to their hearts desire. It is very clean and well supervised. Sometimes even the old folk will ride a little. lol

We had an absolute blast at Joyland! Some of the rides are a little older, but the staff were "a hoot!" Our group had no small children, but we felt like kids again! They have some water rides in addition to the traditional rides of an amusement park. Very reasonable prices as well!

This is a great place to go if you like the experience of a carnival midway. We didn't experience any large crowds or lines, and there were quite a few people in the park. The rides are old, but nostalgic and a lot of fun! Food inside the park was fairly priced, so you get frito-pie without a side of... More

While visiting Texas Tech with my son, we stopped by the prairie dog park, and OmG there was an amusement park there too!! I act like a big kid and my son and I were so excited! We rode all of the rides (except the water rides because we weren't dressed appropriately)! But remember these are old rides and they'll... More

Located in MacKenzie Park, this amusement park would be a great half day's entertainment but not much more. It appears they are adding rides and additional items which might help add some excitement. It is very compact which makes it easier to keep tract of the kids.
