Reduced admission in the summer if you go on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday evening. Personally, I would never pay full admission price for this park. It would be nice if they would offer a family membership for the season, but they do not. This amusement park is more "old school" and there are minimal big thrill rides. However, my... More

Had my daughter's birthday party there, it kept them all busy having fun till they closed. Only one fall back when you get a birthday package there is really no one there making sure you have everything you need , you have to stay on top of them and track them down for service.

I really like the amusement park, even though it is small compared to others. I wish El Paso could have a bigger amusement park, but I can assure you that this amusement park can make you have a good time all day! There are so many rides for the whole family, but the thing that I don't like are the... More

For someone who's grown up and lived in El Paso all their lives, it's known that there are no theme parks around here except for this one and Wet-n-wild. The park is fun and the rides aren't to bad, but in the middle of the summer there is hardly any shade and the drinks are outrageously expensive. For the 20... More

To expensive and no shade. Rides are horrible the bumper cars were a joke the rollercosters were not thrilling. There was nothing fun about it. Waste of my money should of gone to Bob'Os. Bad experience in El paso.

The park is good for kids but is no huge parks. The parking lot is shared with the sunland casino. The water rides are the most fun

While I show my good friend from Switzerland, Chris Gafafer-Luthi around The Hidden Gem of the World, we motored out to the Westside of El PasoTX-USA. If going to the Santa Teresa POE, or Boundary Marker #1 [It is atrocious what has happened to the USA side of this extremely historic site, both in access and physical upkeep] or the... More

If you are bored and have nothing else to do then this might be for you. Other wise Id avoid it. The rides look like they are falling apart they are so old. Not really any shade to hide from the sun, water fountains put out lava rather than water. Staff isnt friendly. Not really much to do to keep... More
