This park is very family oriented and great for children probably younger than 12. If your children are older you would probably be better off driving a little farther and taking them to Hershey Park or Dourney Park.
We took our 5 year old grandchild to Dutch Wonderland several times this summer. It has a small water park area to cool us off when the temperature hit 90 degrees. The lines were not long for most of the rides. They do a bag check at the entrance but allowed me to take water bottles and small snacks for my grandchild.
