Not enough staff to operate the rides. Kids have to wait for operator to finish a ride then come to operate theirs.

I'll apologize in advance to the people of Fresno, but there doesn't seem to be all that much for kids to do in the area. But we were looking for someplace to entertain our kids for an hour or so on the way to Yosemite,...More

The train is the main attraction. I had to pull my grandkids off before I ran out of money. Storyland has been revitalized and a great place to take small children.

This place brings childhood stories to life! It is a very fun and interactive place to bring young ones. Between Storyland, a running train, paddle boats, the zoo and park to have lunch near by, plan for a whole days excursion!

What ages is Playland's rides good for? Anything for a 2 year old to go on? I know the 6 year old will have a great time. Is there a separate charge for Playland/the rides? If so - what is it -or is it included in the admission to Storyland?
