“Fun for the family”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you are visiting Budapest with young children you definitely should spare the time for a visit to Vidampark. The amusement park is not very large, please do not expect Disneyland, but there are a lot of rides and my 6 year old was trilled about the visit and we ended up spending 5 hours there. There is an entrance fee but once inside almost everything is free. The best thing for us was the wooden roller coaster, as we were amazed to see a 100 years old roller-coaster made of wood still working (my son ride it two times) as well as the Magic Castle (tree visits to this one :)). We also liked the panorama wheel, the wave boat, the Spinning Coaster, the Laser dodgem and the Octopus. They have also a decent web site where you can check in advance which rides are allowed for your child.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The park area is quite small there are not too many games and mostly quite out of date. However, the price is quite high.

“What a pity - it could be so good”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We went walking to this park because of the "Third Man" and the part in the movie where they visit the park - regret closed in the winter but the park is like hyde park large and open green spce with access to the city zoo and termal baths - not many visitors and such a pity as if more people were aware and knew about the park - visitor numbers would increase - the zoo is excelent considering its size and location, pity about the weather - the gardens and walks are relaxing and we will be back in the spring summer to try it agian. pity the amusement park was closed. really wanted to try the big wheel....

“Park will be closed for ever”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The park is out-dated. That's way it will be closed on 6 November 2012. The wooden rollercoaster will be a part of the nearby zoo, as will be the whole park. There are plans for a new amusement park somewhere else in Budapest, but nothing is definitive.
