This was our first trip to Adventureland. Positively speaking, the park is very family friendly. For the price I was expecting better quality than most traveling carnival rides but many of the rides seemed old and rickety. The park was also not very clean, several...More

We dropped in here today to get our season passes, $140 each, until the end of May, then $150. Worth that money if you live locally. Go to any Casey’s and get the $10 off a season pass ticket to get one for $130. Parking...More

This is where dreams go to die. It's so, so sad. If amusement parks with poorly maintained rides are your thing, then Adventureland is your place. One of the roller coasters is so rusty I truly wondered if it was safe. I reluctantly admit that...More

We went to Oktoberfest for the first time this year at Adventureland, and it was more fun than we anticipated. Three different locations had live music while we were there and the food trucks were great. We plan to go again next year.

Great family destination for fun right here in Iowa. We go every year with a group outing and I have to say it is worth it to go. The rides are included in the price of admission. There's always something going on.

Before you go, lookup Adventureland on Google. On the results it will show you in real time how busy it is with a bar chart. We have season passes and find it very helpful.
