Reviewed July 7, 2011

Cost over fifty bucks for two adults and one child just to get in.

I don't have a problem with the look of the place, it is what it is.

The rides were very basic, nothing hi tech or different than you are used to. Good for the age group.

There's side attractions based on fairy tales throughout the place.

It was very slow when we were thrre and many rides were closed. Couple of the ride workers looked bored out of their minds.

The train was closed because the tracks had to be greased. Althoigh a woman told us it had derailed.

The magician was very good and funny.
The diving horse was there, nothing special to say the least. Didn't look like he wanted to be there for sure.

As long as you don't expect disney or six flags, its not bad.

Alright. Yes this place is a throw back to the 70s. and that seems to be what is so wacky.. But it is clean. The rides are well taken care of, the staff is nice. We did not feel that our son (or our) safety was at risk. It is worth the money and we spent more time laughing and enjoying the trip down memory lane.

If you were never hear and you have children 6 and under, this is the park you need to visit at least once. 25 little kids rides, about 4 of those adults could ride with kids, short magic show, no horse as stated in other reviews. I guess the cruelty of throwing a horse off a ramp into a pool has sunk to an all time low therefore the park picks and chooses when the allow "Rex" out. The park is filled with weird, scary, trippy old plastic/paper mache type mannequins and statues some ridiculously tall and large. Just really weird. We spent 3 hrs and that was more then enough time. The one main downfall I had was the price for adults an absurd $17.99. The cover the cost I guess of walking our child through the park. We opted out of the concession stand so saved $ there. But once at this park is enough for us, just hope my little guy doesnt have nightmares about the weird giants in the park.

We went to this park after reading reviews and looking at the 1970's brochure that is still in existence today with all the other pamphlets on activities in the area. Knowing that it would be outdated, we didn't have the bar set too high, but this was a great place to take young kids, and there was plenty to do including rides, animals and shows (there were no shows on the day we went and we had a discounted rate of $10 each). Staff was friendly, and the kids had a good time. I really think the max age for this park would be 5-6, it really is for young kids. I would come back in a couple of years when our kids are 4 or 5.

The park is really run down but we bring our kids back every year to see Jimmy the magician. He is even better than Brad Ross & John Carlson who are two very popular magicians here in New Jersey. Can't wait to see him next year!
