When they were at Ascarate Park it was better as there were trees and shade. Now at their current location the trees have not grown enough to provide relief from the intense sun during El Paso's summers.

A long standing El Paso amusement park. Always fun. Decent rides, with a few new ones added. Always good for family and friends.

In a place where fairs don't occur, this place is a great replacement! Our 4 yr old daughter had so much fun here! There were a lot of rides she could do and she loves them all! Definitely would recommend for small children.
