  • Enjoyed immensely. Went for a school trip and had a great time. Never felt uncomfortable or unsafe. Good ambiance, food was pretty good. High prices, but it's an amusement park, so that's what you should expect. Lots of places to eat. Loved the themes of the areas. Only wish there had been more "kiddie" rides. Good park though, and very scenic.
  • We always have an absolute blast. My son is an Elmo and Ernie ADDICT so this is definitely our happy place! The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because of how pricey EVERYTHING is here, but we make it work.
