“Great for the Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This was a great experience for the kids. We spent the day here and while it was very busy we still had a great time. The rides are nothing spectacular but they are still fun and bring back memories from my childhood. Definitely would like to go again when the kids are in school to avoid the long lines. They had a great amount of kids rides though which is mainly what we went for.

“Have fun and take it for what it is...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place is not Disneyland nor Great Adventure but rather a simple, staple of a theme park situated in Uruca, San Jose. Grounds & rides definitely have signs of aging, wear & tear, and are i need of updating; except for the new addition of the "Boomerang" and maybe one other but not a bad place to go for a day and have a few laughs, thrills and enjoy the company of friends and family. Would recommend buying the "pase especial" tickets at c7200 col./$14 usd versus the pay as you go to ride tickets. You will get your monies worth after only riding 4 rides.

“Phenomenal Park (great for parties)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We had our son's b-party there and were extremely happy with the results.
Firstable, they took care of the kiddie drinks, food, snacks, goodie bags, cake, piñata, everything.
Secondable the guests got each a free pass for the whole day to all the attractions.
The staff was EXTREMELY nice and polite, we were there the whole day and enjoy every bit of it.
Our toddler was as happy as a "kid in a candy shop".
We LOVE this place and their party team, the park was super clean and we have nothing but great things to say about it.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Not the easiest place to get to. The grounds are starting to show age and the upkeep is not the greatest. The events and the amusement park is ok.

“Needs updating...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A sized theme park for the amount of traffic they have coming through. The rides are pretty out-dated and are not very exciting. It is pretty much an oversized children's theme park. Teenagers/Adults will be bored easily and you can go on every ride in the park in 2 hours. The reason you can do this is becuase no one comes to the park so you do not spend more than 5 minutes waiting for a ride. A waste of money in my opinion.
