Dutch Wonderland

By

Dutch Wonderland

The wooden Kingdom Coaster at Pennsylvania's Dutch Wonderland delights young riders.

Dutch Wonderland
Boasting a signature castle at its entrance, Dutch Wonderland treats younger kids like royalty. Most of its rides are geared to the 12-and-under set, and even the youngest guests can enjoy most of the attractions when accompanied by an adult. Don't forget to bring bathing suits. Duke's Lagoon (Duke is a purple dragon) features an interactive water play structure with water slides.

The park offers plenty of shows, including Storytime with the Princess, one of Dutch Wonderland's featured characters. It also offers special events such as Fall Farm Fest, Happy Hauntings Halloween celebration (that's not too scary), and Winter Wonderland during the holidays.
