Very nice place to go to with kids and family. We got there pretty early in the day but by lunch time it was starting to rain so i figured i would see what guest services would do for me since i live so far away. Turns out they gave me the same amount of tickets I bought in rain day passes so we could come back and enjoy the park for a full day. Kudos to them four making sure we get our money's worth. The kids loved it so we will go back sometime soon.

Very fun place for kids, disappointing for adults to pay full price for basically being necessary chaperones on mostly smaller, younger, kid-focused activities and rides. Parking is $10 for a longer walk, or $15 for a short walk. Given there are no free places to park and walk it’s a bit harsh on the customers you’re already getting a hefty sum from for a day in the park. Be ready to spend.... or at least have lots of excuses ready because there are stands at every turns to spend on. Hair braiding, face painting, junk food, gifts shops, lemonade, cotton candy.... it’s a long day of telling your kids no. Dive shows are very entertaining, try and get a shady spot early, closer to the bottom if you’re hoping to get a cooling splash. The water park area is small, but offers enough for our kids to entertain themselves the few hours the night before we spend the day at the park. We go as soon as they open and on a week day but are still prepared for some lines on popular rides especially the train. The food options are plenty, but spread apart, expensive, and most offer only a few options at high prices. The mill stream eatery used to be our preferred choice but the staff are often unprepared and the food room temp, slow, and pricey. Pack a picnic, eat in the tables provided next to the park to save yourself a fortune. Driving to one of the many nearby restaurants would be preferable, however you’re likely to lose your parking spot and probably have to pay another $10 to park.

This park has been in our family since it opened in the 1960s. My son is the third generation of our family going and he loves it. I love the modern feel to the park and also more special some of the original attractions are there. The Gingerbread House, the school house and the cow are a park of my childhood as well as my father's every summer. The new roller coaster Merlin's Mayhem was so much fun . Hope they expand more, just keep the original charm!

We had a wonderful time here on Saturday night. We bought the Twilight tickets which was such a good deal. Our three year old loved the rides and had an excellent time here. There is plenty of seating, plenty of activities, and everyone was so friendly. We were at Sesame Place two weeks ago and were disappointed in it overall. Dutch Wonderland was a breath of fresh air after that experience! We will be returning to Dutch Wonderland in the Fall!

Great fun for a family with young children! Our 5 & 8 year old sons love it and and have done so for years! There are plenty of rides to make them both giggle with glee, and beg to ride again and again. The water park is fantastic! A bit mad for nervous moms who have to try to keep up with rambunctious boys while avoiding getting blasted in the head with rogue water jets - just another day in the life, right?! Still, would give the park 5 stars if the admission for adults was a lot lower, as its definitely a children’s park - nonetheless, I can’t wait to go back and make more family memories!
