“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went to Idlewild over the Labor Day weekend. The place is quaint. It could use some updating to make it a little more attractive. The kids, age 6 had fun and that is what counted for us. We were a little disappointed that some of the rides were closed due to it being the end of the season. We were bummed that you still paid the same price and not all the rides were open. You can get discount tickets at Giant Eagle before you go.

“Great park for families!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a great park for families with young children. We love the tree-shaded kiddieland and Storybook forest. Old-fashioned, honest summertime fun. The Soakzone is a great bonus if your kids aren't too tired after all the rides!!

“Takes me back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My children are able to ride the rollercoasters & enjoy the whole amusement park experience. I get to re-live some of my best childhood memories walking through Storybook Forest. My kids really enjoyed Soakzone, too.

“Great Family Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I've been taking my daughter here since she was three years old. The season passes are one of the best entertainment values out there. It's an old fashioned style theme park... there are not to many left like this. Some discounts available include reduced fee entry into some of their other properties such as Kennywood located near Pittsburgh, PA. The park is very picnic friendly, so you can pack a basket and not spend a fortune on park food.
