“Fun for young kids”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Good clean fun for young kids -- think older than 8 or so will not find it as much fun. Did Winter Wonderland on a Satuday (opened 3pm - 9pm). Was actually a little surprised by the turnout. By 4:30pm, the parking lot was 95% full. Perfect for young kids, say 3 - 5. Some more thrill seeking rides for 5 - 7. Not much for the 8+. Longer wait time than expected for the train, 30 mins or so -- was that way the entire evening. Park is very small. You can walk (at casual pace) around the entire park in about 20 mins. Reasonable price, $14 for anyone older than 2/3 (forget) for an evening of fun. We were lucky, weather was mild -- only 50s when we were there. If colder, might need to take inside restaurant break. Ate at Merlin, nice young waiters/waitresses but obviously part-time. Food was edible but well.... Overall, a good time just don't expect Disney quality. Actually think it's better here than Disney for young kids.

“Not bad for small kids”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

I have a 6 yr old, and I felt like it was a nice place for my 6 yr old. There were enough rides that she could ride on. It wasn't overly crowded.

“A Great place for Kids and Parents”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Dutch Wonderland is a great place for kids and parents.there's enough to do to make your kids tired and want to go to sleep once you get back to the hotel. Food there is very good as well.
