“Great family fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place is a lot of fun for kids of all ages. There is a good variety of kiddie rides and a couple of roller coasters. For the adults, the tilt a whirl, scrambler and ferris wheel are alot of fun. The train is a nice ride that all the kids enjoyed. We ran out of time, so did not get to do the miniature golf, but there was a lot of people playing it that day. Bumper cars and go carts where a big hit with our group. Lines were reasonable and the staff was friendly. There is food for purchase, but we brought a picnic lunch - plenty of picnic tables available. All in all we had a great day. The only thing that I disliked was the hours. They close at 6pm even on Saturdays. When you are trying to get a larger group through everything longer hours would have helped. We will definitely be returning.

“Affordable Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We visited Little Amerrika today and we were wonderfully surprised. This amusement park has retro amusement park rides and a train ride that is better than any we have ever seen.
The Tilt a Whirl, Wild Mouse, Toboggan, Ferris Wheel, Merry Go Round, Bullet, Wooden Roller coaster, The Meteor The mixer, Miniature golf, Bumper cars go carts, bumper boats all for one low price. $22.
You can bring in your own picnic, drinks. Even the cost of food in the concession stand was very reasonable. A full day of fun for a family of 4 for under $100.
If you wish to just visit and ride a few rides, you can buy individual tickets and no park entry fee or parking fees

“Ok but won't go back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stopped here on our way home from vacation. It's fine for a one time trip. It's a cute, small park. The rides are old and the park has a feel of an old time place. You really won't need a wrist band unless you plan to be there more than an hour or two or want to go on the rides more than once. You can just buy some tickets. The rides are only one or two tickets and none of the employees even asked for them, I had to offer the tickets to them. My son was too short to drive the go-carts so we were upset about that.
The employees weren't very friendly and they all seemed to not want to be there. On the Meteor roller coaster, my son wanted to get off after the first lap and they let us get off, which I appreciated. The lady behind us in the line was talking about how bumpy and choppy the kids' roller coaster Mad Mouse was so we avoided it. I could tell it was really a rough ride.
Free to park and get in but you have to buy tickets or a wristband. You can even bring your own food in there. There are quite a few ride for little kids as well.

“One of the finest parks I've ever attended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I discovered "Little Amerricka" about a month ago by accident. The park doesn't have much for advertising, and with much bigger and better known amusement parks like the Dells, Six Flags, and even Green Bay's "Bay Beach" competing for attention, it's easy to see how this place would be overlooked.

A simple description would be a "retro" park with rides catering to younger children and families. The rides in the park are predominantly older rides from the 1950's and 1960's that have been rescued from other parks and masterfully restored. The park is clean, the staff are very friendly, and everything is affordable! Admission is free- you just walk right in. For about $20, you can get an unlimited wristband that includes unlimited rides on just about everything, even miniature golf. The food prices are surprisingly affordable, with lots of kids options. If you don't want to pay for food, carry-ins and picnickers are welcome on the grounds with or without ride tickets or wristbands.

The ride makeup is rather varied- they primarily cater to younger children with a large variety of "kiddie" rides and more tame carnival rides like the Scrambler, Tilt-A-Whirl, and an old style "Haunted House". For the older, or more adventurous, they have some stellar roller-coasters (Swiss Toboggan, Mad Mouse, Little Dipper, and the Meteor) and a handful of thrill rides like a Roll-O-Plane and a Go-Kart track. Factor in all the rides and attractions families can ride together, like the Meteor, Tilt-A-Whirl, Miniature Golf, the Monorail, Miniature Railway, etc. and you can have a great family day without spending an arm and a leg, or fighting giant crowds and waiting in enormous lines like you would at other parks.

In total, I spent more on gas getting to the park than I did in the park, and everyone in my family had a great time. It's an amazing family-run amusement park, and easily one of the finest parks I've ever had the pleasure of attending!

“Dirty with old rides and poor customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We visited Little Amerricka with our 6 year old, 4 year old and 6 week old. We purchased the kiddie ride bands since our children are so young and found that two of the rides require an adult to ride with and the adult must pay to ride. These are super small rides. Many won't even fit adult riders. Since one of us would need to stay back with our newborn we asked the owner/manager if he would allow my husband and I to share an armband so either of us could ride with our two older children while the other stayed back with the newborn. The owner/manager was very rude and unprofessional. Instead of offering a solution like purchasing the single ride tickets he insisted that my husband and I must each purchase the more expensive wrist band even though we would each be going on one ride. We would have been paying $10 each to go on a kiddie ride just so we could accompany our children as required. He did end up giving us each a wrist band for the price of one, but not without being very rude and walking away while we were thanking him. The rides were not then marked to show which ones our bands were good for. The rides were very old and rattled a lot. Our son hurt his back on the kiddie roller coster. The bathrooms were dirty and very small. I could not even fit our infant carrier in the stall. Overall horrible experience and will not visit again.
