Since opening on May 20, 1963, Dutch Wonderland has consistently been recognized as the premier family amusement park in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Designed for families with young children, it includes over 35 rides, attractions and shows, making it the perfect place to spend family time!
The park offers a host of fun things to see and do. Cool off in Duke’s Lagoon water play area (open Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day), where kids of all ages can experience a tropical paradise of safe and interactive water play. The area is complete with spurting geysers, spilling buckets, big and little kid slides, a multi-level play platform and plenty of hands-on gadgets. Uncover the past in the fossil dig area on Exploration Island, and experience over 20 lifelike dinosaurs up-close while exploring the Prehistoric Path. Go on a magical, high-flying adventure on Merlin’s Mayhem, the park’s first suspended coaster, featuring thrills, twists and turns for young and old alike.
Dutch Wonderland is open weekends beginning Saturday, April 27, daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, and weekends in September and October. The family fun doesn’t stop after the summer. Don’t miss Dutch Wonderland’s seasonal events: Happy Hauntings (select days in October) and Dutch Winter Wonderland (select days in November and December).
