We had been to Hershey Park in July on a Saturday and it was awful.. long lines, but much shade, and expensive. Came to Dutch Wonderland in September on a Saturday and had a great time! Short lines, reasonable prices, friendly people. Will be back!

We took our grandchildren to Dutch Wonderland. The Amusement Park was definitely understaffed. It was the end of June, so the Park had been open a while. We went for lunch at the Old Mill Stream. Everything was cold, and selection was poor. No one...More

The only reason I didn’t give DW 5 stars is bc they allow smoking in the park and the designated areas are still close enough by to annoy othe visitors. Other than that this is an awesome amusement park for local families and those visiting...More

Our family had a good time here. There's actually very little "dutch" left in Dutch Wonderland. They're more like little side exhibits with simple animitronics that you can walk through and listen to. You'll most likely breeze through these and hit the rides and goodies....More

We’ve visited 4 times now and love it for our kids aged 2-12. Great park for that age. They added a second roller coaster and improved some of the rides. Go early and beat the crowds to the flume and cars. If you plan on...More

Dutch wonderland is designated for younger kids. They have a variety of rides but there are long lines depending on the day and time you go. We waited over 25 mins for the monorail because there was only one train. There is no outside food...More

I agree with the others. You really get your moneys worth after 3 years old. From that point they can ride most rides. Our son is 5 and he can ride everything in the park now.
