Theme Parks in Pennsylvania with kids

Get ready to spin, scream, laugh, drop and soar because it’s Theme Park time in Pennsylvania. Theme Parks are a great way to spend the day with the family - no matter what age.

From the fastest and loudest theme parks, to those family friendly amusement parks, The Keystone State offers you the perfect places to go for that family fun. 

The smallest dare devils in the family will always find age appropriate rides perfect for them, and often in the same park that those older thrill seekers can close their eyes and brave the tallest and fastest thrill rides! 

There is ALWAYS plenty of kids fun at the many theme parks you can find across this great state.

Hold on tight…because Pennsylvania is ready to give your family a host of fun things to do with kids all year round - Theme Park style!
