Had an amazing day. Rode lines weren't bad and rides were definitely exciting. Wasn't too thrilled with the waterpark portion, although the family tube ride was a blast. Word of caution, stay away from the stand potato works. The sign says fresh cut but they're definitely frozen. I can make the same fries from the store.

Very clean, exciting and well managed park. Lines were never too long even with all of the schools there during the day :) Food options were abundant and cost around $10 a meal. The Refillable cups are the best option!

We had a great time all the times I've been here. The last time was in 1996. My husband& I went for the day. We had been in Canada for the previous 3 days It isn't to far from the falls. I'm sure it has grown over the years,but it is a nice clean park

Rides are great fun. Adults & children had fun. Food is a little pricey, but in line with other amusement parks. They offer affordable drink value, with 99 Cent refills & souvenir cup. Picnic areas by park entrance which is where we had lunch. Had an enjoyable day. Season passes available.

Visited with my husband and 10 year old son. Really pathetic. I'm thinking very under staffed. Many closed rides, and the rides that were open they were not being filled to capacity. Not enough water park staff, truly an upset when you drive out there and expect to have a great family time and it turns out to be a... More

I visited Darien Lake Amusement Park on June 24, 2015. My experience was likely greatly impacted by the fact that it was a weekday before the "official" start of the season.

We had a wonderful time. Stayed in Brown Bear Cabins. I noticed other people have mentioned the park was "not clean". I only found this to be true with a few washrooms. Most ride operators were friendly and helpful and always checked the height of the small child traveling with us. All in all we had a great time and... More
