2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Really needs to update the rides, and the park needs more shaded places

“Not that good, small, no shade”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

The old location was amazing, there were plenty tree's and shade, and a complete change of scenery that made you forget about the dryness of the desert. It was like an oasis. When you were waiting in lines, you did not die from the heat of the sun!

This "new" location has no shade, no tree's, and a lot of dirt. The dirt is a major issue, do to the sand storms. Also the train used to go around the whole park, through a tunnel and was great! the train now is in the center of the park, it goes in a circle, that's all. a small circle.

Besides the no shade, the park its self is pretty small. The rides were basically the same ones you would see at a traveling carnival. I admit some rides were fun, but It was not worth the price. Some people believe the park will "expand" but the sad truth is it has been around for a loooong time, and really there has been little expansion.

If you do decide to go, bring plenty of sun lotion, and water, and hope it is not windy at all!

“Small but fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

The listed address of 6900 Delta is incorrect, the correct address is 1249 Futurity Dr. in Sunland Park, New Mexico 88063. The old location was amazing as it had a small lake adjacent to it that really enhanced the views. The new location is very nice and it has a great flow to it. The rides are great for all ages, there is really nothing here that is too scary. Even though the amusement park is tiny compared to the larger parks in other cities, it will leave you with a sense of fulfillment. It has everything you need in an amusement park all packed into a small, fun, condensed package. The main roller coaster is the locally famous El Bandido. It's a quick, entertaining ride that will definitely bring a smile to your face. This is basically the largest ride here and a must-do. The park is great for all ages and will keep you and your family going all day. I hope that the owner will continue to add attractions to it such as a haunted house and/or a larger roller coaster. Anyway, this is a really fun park that I'm sure the family will enjoy.
