“Dutch Wonderland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

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.

“The Kids Love It, Your Wallet will Not!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have been to Dutch Wonderland as a kid and most recently as a father. We have taken my daughter,age 9, a number of times over the years, most recently for their winter wonderland session.

Dutch Wonderland is a very cozy, compact park geared for kids ages 1-12. An.y older than that I don't think it would keep their attention or meet their needs for excitement. I call the park a mini-park because it is not your great adventure or hershey park experience. It's on a much smaller scale but the prices are no less expensive. You may need only 2 hours here, 3 if you do there small water park but you will still drain your wallet.

“Best place for younger kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

My kids LOVE this place! They are 5 and 8 and they like the fact that they can ride EVERYTHING without Mom & Dad (which Mom & Dad are thankful for as well). The park is clean, lots to do and reasonable. They enjoy going into the water section at the end of the day as well. Couldn't ask for a better vacation!
