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.

Dutch Wonderland Highlights

The park features a great assortment of rides, shows, water rides, events, and attractions geared to younger children, including the wooden Kingdom Coaster, the Lady Gray River Boat ride around the park's botanical gardens and Duke's Lagoon water slides and attractions.
