    Nice place to get energy out. inexpensive except for food, $5 for soft pretzels is over charging! Be ready to follow children on/around play structures. Ladders for slides very tall and some places have big drop offs for kids that are not real stable on feet. Animals are untouchable. So grandma got good workout too....lol

    Wonderful memories!!
    My mother used to bring me here when I was 5. I'm 65 now! I remember there was an owl in a cage in the tree house slide. There were large Galapagos tortoises at the park. From the photos it has some of the same features. The large concrete rabbit, the crooked mile, the shoe slide. I'm glad to see it's still there after all these years!!

    Our toddler & preschooler loved this
    The park was cute, clean, & in good repair. There were many activities for the kids and areas to plays. Our grand daughter is 2 1/2. Her favorite thing seemed to be the slides. Our 5 y.o. grandson loved the trains. There's an extra key you can rent to hear stories & other info in several locations. Some of them didn't work & others were poor recording quality or just not interesting. So we wouldn't do that part again, but we would go & play again! Fairytale Town is in a large park with picnic tables & grill pits.

    Love it!
    What a fun place! I took my 3 year old niece to Fairytale Town last weekend and she had a blast. Special favorites were the Big Red Shoe slide and the animals!

    Only for children!! No Alone Adults allowed
    We found it the hard way. Nowhere that we found the information stating you can't come in if you don't have kids with you. We got to the gate and were turned away. I understood the idea, but that was the first time I saw such a thing. I do not agree with the whole idea though, but oh well...

    Fairytale
    I think most would agree that fairytale town is a great place. I live in Sacramento, grew up here, so I went there many times as a child. My first experience was at the age of 5....my parents rented out the castle that stands at the entrance for my birthday party! I got to wear a crown, and was treated like a princess. The staff who hosts the party were always fun. I love the story about the rocks that adorn the walls. They told me and my friends that the if we pulled on the rocks we might find one that moves and itd open a secret door that leads to a treasure guarded by a dragon! It was great! After my party i got to run around with my friends. There are many slides, a puppet show, and animals. I havent been to fairytale town in awhile, but if i have children ill take them! I especially remember a slide in the shape of show, a cement twisty thing you could run on, and a barnhouse slide....but i loved the animals too! I remember pigs who were "the three little pigs" and tortoises...the great big ones that i havent seen anywhere else. Oh yes, and there is a pirate ship you can climb all around on, a big slice of cheese with holes in it so you can climb through and on. It was great fun, and ill never forget it.

    Better than the Fairytale Town at Capitol Park...
    Things to climb, bridges to cross, a castle, familiar stories and characters. Kids’ imaginations take care of the rest.

    Pricey for a park! Adults are charged to go in too
    I took my 3 kids ages 13,7, and 4. This park is for under the age of 5. My two older ran through it and we're done in 30 mins. I think it quite silly for adults and kids over 10 to be charged because they will not be doing anything other than watching. Also there is a water feature that goes around the park and it was drained, disappointing!
