  • For a wonderful day with family that has young children, this is a no brainer. Almost the entire park is geared towards the younger kiddy crowd with their doting parents. The layout of the place is re...  read more »
  • They have the park open at night with incredible light displays. Dragons, pagodas, pandas, flowers, etc. Music playing, free entertainment (jugglers, acrobats), good food- rice bowls, dim sum, also BB...  read more »
  • This is a beautiful place to take your family (of all ages). The big collection of different trees and plants were assembled by Mike Bonfante over many years. It shows children about nature. 
  • I love this theme park! This is the best theme park for young kids. There are lots of trees (helps stay cool in summer heat), and the grounds are beautiful. There are rides for all ages, and there's a water park inside as well. There are lots of food options, and even beer. But being that this is a theme park, the food and beverage options are expensive. I recommend bringing your own snacks/lunch.
  • This place is perfect for families! My 3-year-old loves the rides and water areas. I love the fact that it's not very crowded and the prices are reasonable. Plus, they have a few rides that are faster and geared towards older kids & adults. They also have fun special events like lunch with Santa and a petting zoo that cost more money, but are worth it.
  • My grandchildren LOVE it here. It's a wonderful place for anyone that loves outdoor beauty, the gardens and trees are gorgeous. The rides are family friendly, I can ride w the grandkids! Serene, beautiful, COOL, WE LOVE it! As a matter of fact we're headed there this morning!
  • Oh my goodness. Our family is in love with this place! We have season passes for the second year in a row. It's made for little kids. I tell people it's an amusement park for 10 and under. Water attractions, train around the park, soft serve ice cream and toddler friendly rides. The food...pricey and not worth it. Bring some snacks or lunch. Season tickets are totally worth it if you plan on going a few times a year. They have the place run pretty well. Go on a week day if you can for short lines. Highly recommended.
  • Very beautiful theme park! Visited first time yesterday to celebrate my daughter's 3rd birthday. Great park experience except Facepaint booth. Many rides for young children including train ride and she absolutely loved the mini water park. Lot of shade all around the park so you won't be standing in the sun waiting in lines for the rides. I am giving it 4 stars due to facepaint booth incident near the park entrance. As we entered park, we asked for the butterfly paint tattoo on my daughter's arm and the girl there (Ashley) offered to do it at discount price of $12 instead of normal $16, as it was on arm and not face. But, once done, she overcharged me and did not honor the price she quoted before. She behaved rudely and kept saying she is doing me a favor by giving a discount of $2. I complained to park manager and explained her the incident. She was very understanding and even offered to refund the money back. It was an employee ethics issue at children's park and manager assured me to take an action to resolve this. Other than that, really good place for kids and family to have fun and 1-day might not be enough to cover all activities!
