The Amusement Park began operating at the end of 1981.Add Parque Diversiones and other attractions to your San Jose trip itinerary using our San Jose online trip itinerary planner.

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.
