“A kingdom for kids”

Dutch Wonderland is a 48-acre (19 ha) amusement park just east of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, appealing primarily to families with small children. The park's theme is a "Kingdom for Kids." The entrance to the park has a stone imitation castle façade, which was built by Earl Clark, a potato farmer, before he opened the park in 1963.

The Clark family sold Dutch Wonderland in 2001 to Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company. They also operate Wonderland Mini-Golf, and Old Mill Stream Campground at the same location and the Gift Shop at Kitchen Kettle Village, in nearby Intercourse, Pennsylvania. On November 12, 2010, Hershey Entertainment announced that they sold Dutch Wonderland to Palace Entertainment. "Fernando Eiroa, Palace Entertainment President and CEO, commented, “We are very proud of the integration of a leading park like Dutch Wonderland within our group.

We are fully aware of the unique position that Dutch Wonderland holds within its community and we will be doing everything to enhance the Dutch Wonderland brand, while keeping the special family appeal of the park." Today, the park has 34 rides, plus a tropical-themed interactive water play area called Duke's Lagoon. The park also has an extended season, open for "Happy Hauntings" and "Dutch Winter Wonderland" events for Halloween and Christmas. The park is part of a larger area in Lancaster zoned for entertainment, dining, lodging, and conferences.

Worth it just for the water park! My 6 year old spent a solid 3 hours in there while I chilled with my 11 month old in the shade. The actor who played Merlin was so sweet with my 6 yo, too. Everyone was friendly and we lucked out with the crowds. Not a super huge amount of people were there that day, so there were barely any lines!

Was in the area and had free admission to Dutch Wonderland. So just planned on a quick stop as our kids are older 9 and 10, I didn't expect them to find much to do. Boy was I wrong what I figured would be 2hrs at most turned into 8hrs. We arrived just before open about 9:40 am, $5 to park. Our 10yr old is not as adventurous as the 9yr old, so I think this was more her speed. A lot of old rides and attractions, that you don't see everywhere, if anywhere else such as Astroliner ( a 1978 motion simulator) and Dutch Wonder Haus. The shows were cute, and the food ok. We did the Merlin buffet and while geared more for kids I was satisfied and found nothing bad, nothing was exceptional but I've had a lot worse park food. This place is known for being great for little kids but if you have slightly larger unadventurous kids it is a good fit as well.
