“Our 3 yr old loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

This was our second time with our daughter, who was only 1-1/2 yrs when we first went. She had fun, so we did too! We watched 2 shows which are the perfect length for this age. We didn't eat in the restaurants this time, just went with Uncle Andy's pretzels and lemonade which were both good. We went on a Monday which was surprisingly crowded but it had rained the day before so maybe that was why. Wish there were more face painters....every time we tried there was quite a line for it. Bathrooms were clean for the most part and my daughter loved the Tot stall where the toilet was just her size. The price is a bit crazy for 2 adults and 1 child over 3....$101.25 WITH a coupon. But I guess that is to be expected and we had a very nice time. Great place for kids under 8!

Everything about DW is awesome. The staff is wonderful. The park is super clean. We've gone many times and have never had a single bad experience.

“Fun day for my kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My 2.5 year old and 7 year old really enjoyed Dutch Wonderland. They were pretty strict about the height requirements, so my 7 year old was able to go on more rides than the little one, but there were still plenty of rides for them both. We visited during the week and it was not too crowded. The lines for the rides weren't too long. Most of the food at the park was expensive, but we found a Nathan's stand in the park that had hot dogs for about $3.50, which was reasonable. If you can sneak in a few bottles of water or juice, it's a good idea. The park is small enough to walk around and navigate. Duke's Lagoon - the water park area - was a fun place to cool off. It is worth to pay $10 for the preferred parking, which allows you to park close to the front gate and you can leave and come back to the same lot.

“Fun day out with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We spent the day with my kids of 5 and 10 and was bit worried at the beginning about the rides would be good enough from the 10 year old but we found a lot of rides for her and their were a lot of rides for younger son and even though it was summer holiday in August and their were a lot of people in the park we started at 10am and left about 5pm and there will still the rides we didn't mange to do?
It's about $32 each from age 3-50 as you get coupon online for $ 3 less per ticket
The food courts are about $7-15 for meal or just get hand stamped and cross the road to the Pizza Hut and. Eat. Family pizza for $10 for all of you.
Great place will recommend this my friends a d family
