Brought our three four year old grandchildren for the day. I had gone here when I was a kid their age so I really felt like I was going back in time, but I was pleased to see all the improvements. I haven't done any parks like this for awhile so was sort of surprised how much they charged for young kids, and there are no discount coupons (other than $1 off for seniors) to be had from what we heard. It cost us $144, but maybe that's reasonable in this day and age?? The brochure says "parents and guardians are encouraged to ride along", but, in most cases, they must! The height requirement for kids to go alone is 48"; I would think there would be rides for children 4-6 that they were able to ride themselves since the place seems generally geared to this age group. I was surprised to read of teenagers enjoying this place. Several rides only accommodated two people in each seat so, with three kids, it was difficult. For example, on the whirling whale ride two kids could sit in the front with an adult in back. If one adult doesn't want to go on a ride, you stand in line again with the third child! I read somewhere there are employees who are available to take kids on rides, but I don't know if this is a prearranged deal or not. No one offered us that option. The Fairy Tale Fiasco was fun, and "Alice in Wonderland" was really nice visiting with the kids before the show. I think it would have been nice if Red Riding Hood and Peter Pan hadn't disappeared so quickly afterwards as the kids would have had fun meeting them. Also, it would be nice if some of the "characters" were available throughout the park for kids to meet. Why can't Cinderella be in her castle more often for the kids to see rather than having to pay money to attend a tea? While it may be worth the money for the extra events with the characters, I think many of the attractions lose their impact with no real character involvement in the park. Employees were all very nice, and the man operating the roller coaster was very thoughtful to offer to hold my larger camera for me in a secure spot during my ride. The food was like every other theme park: expensive and ordinary. I would recommend bringing your own lunch. The set-up at the Food Fair was poor as people were backed up with people getting salads and wraps out of the cooler while the hot food was waiting to be taken by the people behind them. Two lines would make sense! The place is clean, and the kids had fun. I guess that's the point, but I would not make a return visit. Been there, done that.
