Great day trip!

Have been coming here since I was a kid and I love it! They are slowing updating the surroundings BUT the rides are excellent and that beer garden. Super bonus.

Christmas 🎄lights at adventure land benefiting Make a Wish Foundation. $10 per car load. Went on a Tuesday evening and they were busy. Nice lightings and plan on taking awhile to drive through. Busy. Wish they would have had Music as it would have added. Nice way to get in the Holiday Spirit.

Got discounted tickets. Was probably the only park in DSM area so we decided to check it out. Good experience so far but won't visit again.

This is a great amusement park. It has kid rides, water rides, a water park, new attractions all the time. Games, bingo, shops, something for everyone! It's a wonderful day of enjoyment we go to every year. Many companies big & small have their annual company picnics at Adventureland and are catered by them. They also offer season this. As... More

It was a very fun place. My family and I go there every summer. It made for all ages, everyone can enjoy. The new ride they put in this year the Monster is a very fun roller coaster & as well as the Adventure Bay. Overall it was a very fun trip.

As an amusement park enthusiast, I'm always willing to scope out a new one in search of the highest peaks and fastest rails. So when I read that they were opening The Monster, we decided to hop in the car for a road trip! First impression of the park was that it was cute! Not very glamourous, but its main... More

My family and I go to ADVENTURELAND every year. Usually we go on Father's Day but this year we went in September. The rides are great especially for young children. Lines are usually a lot shorter than other amusement parks. Good is what you would expect. It's amusement park/fair style. However The cookie shop is great! While on our visit... More

Attended with kids ( 16 8 11 4 ) and wife. We had a blast as usual. We have come each summer for the last 5 years and I came many times when I was a kid. Ride the roller coaters for sure!

I came here as a kid, and wanted my kids to experience it also. A lot of the same rides were still there. Even though the park looks run down, it still offers so much fun! However, we have a teenager, and two younger kids, and they couldn't seem to agree on the rides. I was also worried about the... More

Love a place that has a decent bier garten. Rides are nice. The new Monster roller coaster was a lot of fun. Downer is the cars are so small the line gets lengthy. No more log ride which is a bummer. Lazy river is getting sort of bumpy and lame. Dollars for donuts I would go to KC O of... More
