Fun Things Visits Dutch Wonderland Lancaster, PA

Recently we took a trip to one of our family's favorite Lancaster County attractions, Dutch Wonderland. We love it because it has fun for all ages, from the youngest member of your family to the oldest. It has the traditional rides you remember as a kid (slides, bumper cars, roller coasters, carnival rides) and a water park to cool off during hot summer months. It also doesn't hurt that it is only 2 hours away.

"A Kingdom For Kids!"
It’s not just a slogan – it’s a commitment to young children and their families that beyond the castle walls is a place just for them called A Kingdom For Kids! With 35 rides and attractions, my 8 year old and 5 year old never found a ride they didn't love.

The park is laid out very nicely with a park-like setting that makes you feel that you are on leisurely stroll rather than an intense scramble to get on the next ride. To assist you in what rides are appropriate for your children they have polls that list the height requirements posted before each ride.  Some of the rides even allow you to ride with your child.

We also enjoyed watching the dive show at the park, which was very exciting. Expert divers put on a princess and villain themed show that includes thrilling high and platform dives.

The park has your typical amusement park food and Pennsylvania Dutch favorites. And they also have a lot of healthy eating options including gluten fee items.

A part of the park we have never visited  before was Duke's Lagoon. Keeping with theme of something for everyone, this water park has a huge tube water slide for the bigger kids and adults and kiddie slides that are perfect for the under 8 crowd.  My kids enjoyed the pipeline plunge.

Watch the video below to see some of the attractions that we enjoyed during our day at Dutch Wonderland.
