  • Great place to spend a ton of money and a ton of time alike. Really, this place is great for people who love shows and who have season passes. Pretty unaffordable for the average person to just run over there with a family. The rides are pretty good and the food of course is good. Funnel cake ! The staff is really friendly. Find a baby sitter and take the wife at Christmas time to see all the lights. In my opinion that’s money well spent, the lights are absolutely beautiful!
  • Get a Trailblazer Pass! I suggest it on busy days....extra cost but worth it. Pass all the regular peeps so you can enjoy more in the day. Great park. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great staff. Liked it alot.
  • The park used to have more of that “Town from the 1880s” feel. It just feels like that’s gone. The workers used to be required to stay in character but that’s not even enforced. Instead of great bluegrass or roots music you hear a smattering of about every genre and era. Bluegrass just has a “festival”. If you’re looking for a great theme park to drop a boatload of cash, go to Disney World.
  • What an awesome park. Great rides for kids of all ages, even adults! Great food friendly employees. Employees are always nice and friendly. There is plenty to do here. Tip buy season passes, they come with guest passes. We bought 5 season passes and they came with 5 guess passes. We took five extra family members today, and that my friend was a savings of over 300 bucks!!!! Christmas time up here is so amazing. Lights are insane!!
  • My favorite theme park. I've been visiting since I was a small child, and still visit to this day. Their festivals keep the entire year exciting, making a season pass an amazing deal, and they're on the cutting edge of adventurous and innovative ride designs. Surrounded by trees, and the natural beauty of the Ozarks, this park offers an immersive experience that transports you back in time. Park "citizens" are draped in attire from the 1880s, and offer crafts, art, and more that match the time period. Even their thrill rides match the theme making it a unique adventure. While known for their World Famous Christmas Displays with more than 6.5 MILLION lights strewn on every nook and cranny in the park, it's also home to American Craftsmanship. From glass blowers to blacksmiths, candle-makers, and various artists you can find unique, hand-made souvenirs and gifts for everyone in the family. You can personalize most items, and their prices are fairly reasonable. Food will not disappoint either. Made from scratch cinnamon rolls that are the size of your head, salt-water taffy, peanut brittle, funnel cakes, and my personal favorite winter drink, wassail. They offer a discount to season pass holders, and for being a theme park the prices aren't outrageous. It will definitely get expensive if you have a large group of people. Finally their staff, or citizens! They are the vital part of the experience and deliver EVERY. TIME. It amazes me the dedication and loyalty to make sure every visit for every guest is special, and it shows. Do yourself a favor and visit often. You won't regret it.
