Super expensive! Grew up coming here and not much seems updated except prices. Each ride minimally costs around $4 and if you need to ride with a little one the adult must also have tickets. You are looking at around $8 to ride on a horse cArousel ride.

Overall we love coming here with the family....nice little selection of rides for everyone....however the price is creeping close to the cost of admission into disney....with most rides costing 5-6 tickets per person per ride....that $50 dollars you spend for 75 tickets can go very quickly.....Note--that early in the season they do sell tickets half price during a certain time...

Have come here since I was little, and now I bring my daughter here. Rides for all ages, no lines, buy tickets in the Spring at half price!

Was here with a 3 year old boy and 4 year old girl, they both had an awesome time. Rides look to be very well maintained and clean. Staff is always extremely helpful.

Large ferrestwheel, plus traditional carousel, small roller coasters, water flume, etc. Great attractions for young kids to early teens. Some rides are under cover for when the weather turns. Clean park. Rides ran by kids.

If you are staying in the middle of the action, which I'd say is 8th-10th St., it's a little walk. But they have good rides for all ages. It can get busy, but is not as loud as the Castaway's ride cove.

Hopefully you purchased your ride tickets earlier in the Spring when they were half priced. As everything in OC - clean and family friendly. Mostly for 12 and under crowd. Go earlier in the day to avoid the crowds.

Wonderland consists of generally dated rides, with a few newer additions. The most notable characteristic of the park is its pricing. The cheapest rides cost $4 per person. So if you have a little child and they need a chaperone on the carousel, it'll cost $8 per ride! And that is the cheapest ride. The park is clean and simple,... More
