Our family really enjoyed our trip to Dutch Wonderland this summer. Only 1 1/2 hours from suburban Philadelphia, this place is a throw back to the amusement parks of old.
Be advised that this place is geared for the <10 set. If your kids like tons of roller coasters and upside down rides, this is not the place for you.
There are lots of kiddie rides, some shows and other attractions. For older kids, the Princess wooden roller coaster and log flume are sure to please.
This year, we were thrilled to find a new water playground was added. Just let me say, this playground was very, very well done. It was safe and surprising. It had the adults laughing and playing! We didn't want to leave.
One of the down sides is that the concession stands are staffed by local teenagers with no sense of urgency, so expect lines at the food stands. Another thing I don't like is that there are too many games where you need to shell out additional money, after you already paid for admission.
