  • This park was more than I expected! My teens parked themselves in the snack area with wifi, while my daughter, husband and I explored the surroundings. I would plan a full two hours maybe 3 to explore and do everything. It is free to enter but you will need $$$ for rides/snack. Think your child is too old? My almost 8 year old LOVED it!!!
  • Such an amazing place to visit for the whole family! I've been going here for over 10 years, and I worked at their theatre program in high school. If you're looking for FREE, family activities, there's so many of them at StoryBook Land. You can spend days there and have an amazing time!
  • Amazing park that we want togo again and again! Just perfect size for the toddlers and for family fun day! We moved out of Aberdeen but try to go here every summer! Love it!
  • Nice place! Was way too hot when I took my girls 6 and almost 2yr. They still had fun though! Will be back!! June 2016
  • Nice place to be at with your family. It is quite kid friendly.
