Dutch Wonderland Lancaster
Where are we going today?
Set in the heart of the beautiful Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is Dutch Wonderland - 48 acres of amazing family fun!
They have done a really great job on making sure there are rides for every height bracket, and they have them all coordinated to make sure you pick the best ones to suit you - how is that for great organization!
There are plenty of rides for those little ones below 36", from the cute Choo Choo Charlie, little dirt diggers and even fun trips with slides and panda bears! Have they always wanted to be an astronaut? The Sky Fighter is a great chance to feel like one!
If you want slightly more adventurous rides, and ones that you can enjoy with the family, there are a host of rides perfect for you!
You can experience over 20 lifelike dinosaurs on the Prehistoric Path (keep an eye out for that T-Rex!) and even blast off into space with the Astroliner rocket ride. BLAST OFF!
Monorails, digging for dinosaurs, menacing dragons, splashing log flumes, twists, turns, boats and wonder...Dutch Wonderland have really gone all out to give you all the family fun you could want!
For those who are a little more adventurous, there are of course rides that will keep you on your toes (and some that might get you drenched!)
We haven't even mentioned the shows yet! Dutch Wonderland is FILLED with great entertainment for the whole family, with story-time, princesses, dragons tales, acrobatics and even music! Why not split your day into rides and entertainment to really get the most out of your experience?
Amazing fun in Pennsylvania!

Doing our bit
They have height restrictions for some rides so they can keep you safe! That's their no. 1 concern!.
Need a little extra help?
During the fall and winter, Dutch Wonderland transforms the park into the Happy Hauntings (for Halloween) and Dutch Winter Wonderland (for Winter)! If you haven't visited yet, make sure you do! There is tons to do for families of all sizes.
Nursing Mothers can utilize their new Nursing Mothers Station located near the train station. The Nursing Mothers Station has a rocking chair for mom and a kid-sized chair for older brothers or sisters. The Nursing Mothers Station also has a changing table..
Can I get one of those?
Get that pocket money out, because the Castle Gift Shop or Mini Castle has a fun selection of Dutch Wonderland and Pennsylvania Dutch merchandise. There are also swimwear and water play items available at Lagoon Treasures .

"Wonderful Amusement Park for Kids!"
by flecklc on May 20th, 2013
Small amusement park, very kid friendly. Best for ages 2-8. Older kids might be bored. All the employees are pleasant and helpful. Decent food/drink offerings although they are expensive. You can pack a lunch, tables are available outside the park.
