The Parque Diversiones Dr. Roberto Ortiz Brenes (English: National Amusement Park Dr. Roberto Ortiz Brenes; also known as Parque Diversiones) is an amusement park located in San José, Costa Rica. The park's motto is "healthy children help sick children". The park was named for Dr. Brenes because it was his proposal which resulted in it being established.

The Amusement Park began operating at the end of 1981.

  • Amazingly good! A place where you can have fun and share nice time with family !
  • It has very thrilling rides for a very cheap price, although the food is more expensive than most that you find anywhere else, so I would recommend bringing your own food
  • Remind me to hold by balls in my hands before visiting this place again! Damn, I have never been so scared and having fun at thesame time in my life! Look the rides are amazing! Try the Torre and Skymaster! Thank me later
  • Amazing place to enjoy the whole day. Remember to pay for the VIP Pass which is quicker and you end up enjoying the place instead of waiting in a line. You do pay a bit more but it's worth the cost. This park has multiple areas for multiple enjoying pleasures. From picnic, to farms, to adrenaline sites and more. Its a full day with the family.
  • Great and fun. Needs more shows, maybe a learning area for kids. Tree needs more action. Security check up at entrance. Recycling spots.
