On our way through SD we stopped at Storybook Land. It is free to go through, although we left a donation. It was so clean and kept up. Our 9 year old son liked it, there are all kinds of storybook characters and the Wizard of Oz. There were a few animals to see, a train ride, and we rode on the old carousel and our son went on the balloon ride--which were so inexpensive to ride!! There is a food vendor and gift shop also that we visited while here. Wonderful place to take a family!!

We came to Storybook Land while passing through with the family. The park is free, nice, clean and impressive. We spent 4-5 hours enjoying the park. As an added bonus it was the 25 year celebration so they had added entertainment including a live play and music. Also enjoyed was a free ice cream social. We have been here before and will return next time we are in town.

Nice little park for the kids. All kinds of storybook characters from our child hood stories like a pail Buyan and the cow jumped over the moon.

This was a great surprise. Didn't know what to expect, however it brought me back to my childhood. Loved every minute of it. Daughter's loved it. Wife loved it and we couldn't stop taking pictures.

This is a great little trip for a family...or any adult that is young at heart! I enjoyed seeing all the nursery rhyme characters and thinking back on all of them and trying to remember them. My daughter(4) was a little scared of the tornado in Dorothy's house and a couple places along the yellow brick road path(for example, the trees do talk and yell at you for stealing their apples, just like in the movie). There are currently 3 rides that cost money, either $1.75/person/ride or you can buy a 10 punch card for $14. The 3 rides are a carousel, a wizards balloon ride(little balloon shaped baskets go up into the air and spin around), and the train that takes you through the park as a guided tour. They have two petting zoos(chickens, llama, sheep, goats, calf, pigs, miniature donkeys and miniature horses), and they are connected to Wylie Park Zoo(which is also free) that has Elk, Bison, Prairie Dogs(with the peep hole tunnels for kids to get a better view), mule deer and various waterfowl. We also got beverages at the concession stand as it was a hot day, and the prices were very reasonable, for everything, not just drinks. A small soda runs you $1.10, old fashioned lemonade is also $1.10 for a small, and I do remember lots of ice cream treats for $1.00-$2.00, hot dogs were $1.50. My entire day, including some toys from the gift shop cost me $29.50. However, I did give a freewill donation of $20 to the donation piggy bank. This place is wonderful and we will be back.
