  • This was my first time at the Memphis Kiddie Park, bit it definitely won't be the last. My 4 little ones range in age from 2-7 and they totally loved it. Very affordable and lots of rides for kids. I would highly recommend if you are looking for things to do with kids under 50".
  • For the little ones, it's terrific. Nicely maintained, clean, with a number of shady spots, it has a staff of retirees and young adults who are friendly helpful and knowledgeable. There is also a miniature golf course on the grounds. There are park benches and picnic tables on which to rest or enjoy food. Tickets are valid from one year to the next, in case you buy a book of them and don't use them all.
  • great place for little kid rides (under 50 inch). we paid 37 dollars for 25 rides. they have slower options and faster ones. when we went there were 10 different rides to chose from. the environment was very kid friendly, staff buckled in the kids.
  • Cute place for little kids. In my opinion it's become way over priced. 2.50 for a single ride is a pretty steep price to pay for what you get. Having grown up going there and then working there myself I was surprised with how much has stayed the same, and also how much things cost. We had a fun hour or so but would not stay much longer than that.
  • My 2 year old grandson loves it! He went on almost every ride... Including the Little Dipper roller coaster. The place is clean, friendly staff, and well run. Definitely take your grandkids!
