“Really Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Went during the Christmas season when all of the storybook character's are lit up with lights. We will go again, a lot of fun for $2 a person. Loved it.

“Holiday lights you won't believe set in a storybook setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Storybook Island has been a fixture in Rapid City for decades. At Christmas all the storybook exhibits are lit at night starting the Friday after Thanksgiving with tens of thousands of lights. The rest of the year admission is free but during the holidays a nominal charge of $2 is in place. There is a small child's train that goes around the park and hot cocoa and coffee are available for a nominal charge. It is a great venue for young children and the young at heart as well.

“my childhood revisited 30 years later”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

This place is better than watching cartoons. I sat on the 101 dalmations bowl of dog food and it felt like I remembered it from when I was young.

“Perfect way for a family to spend a day!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Tons of wonderful storybook displays for kids (and adults) to climb on, play on, and admire. Beautiful park. Large enough to spend a day. Small enough to visit in a couple of hours.
