“Let those kids let off some steam!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a fun, non typical, old fashioned place to take the kids, learn nursery rhymes, run the crooked mile, play in the castle and wear them out. Then walk across to the zoo and wear them out some more!

“Fun in a nostalgic way...”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is by no means a high tech state of the art attraction. It mainly consists of structures to climb and things to look at...but that does not mean my kids did not enjoy it. They loved all the different slides and the yellow brick road. There are some animals to see and a little area where you can water a garden. It's a cute way to spend an afternoon. My kids were happy with the lunch, average children's menu offerings. We did have coupons from our Entertainment book so the price was worth it. I would recommend it to those with younger children.

“Awesome place for the right age of child.”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This is the kid of place that 2-3 year olds will love, Some many structures that they will love. But beware, 2-3 years would probably love to come here every day, 5 year old will probably prefer return visits to the near by Funderland or Zoo.

“A great play land for kids!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you have little ones - this is the place to come! All the fairy tales in relief to play on and interact with. If you grew up in Sacramento - your parents took you there - or might have even had your birthday party in King Arthurs Castle! Great memories for your kids!
