Went grandkids for Dutch Wonderland's Christmas celebration. Even though it was extremely cold we had a great time and the grandkids, as usual, had a fantastic time. Lines were manageable and the open fire pits for making Smores was a welcomed treat due to cold. Christmas lights were great. Season pass holder and looking forward to next season.

This is the place to take small children for a mini vacation. The rides are well suited for children of all ages but our 5 and 7 year old absolutely love this place and ask to come back ever year.

I think it is wonderful for young little kids, I have a toddler and a teen, it did not work for us, my teenager got very bored.

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.

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.
