  • This place is adorable. Luckily my husband stayed home with two sick kiddos so it was just my 4 year old daughter and I. The cost is $10/person to enter! After the $5 parking. There is no way $50 is w...  more »
  • And reasonable! Spend the day! So much to do for the kids and not overwhelming for grandparents! Be sure to get the "bracelet " 
  • We took our two girls, 6 and 11, this week and they had a nice time. Much more suited to the 6, but still enjoyable for all of us. Highlights were: Alice in Wonderland (there are 21 smiles hidden thro...  more »

  • Pros: Great place for kids, my 3 year old loved it, running all over the place and was VERY excited the whole time. Tones of stuff to do for them and a lot of kids, great location by the lake. Things are a bit out dated but kids don't care, most things work and great for kids maybe 8 years and under. Con: $10 from ages 1 to 100, Shouldn't be that much for adults because lets ace it, not many adults are there for themselves and my one year old didn't use any ride there and ha to pay for her too. Also parking is $5 which isn't too bad but better off finding parking. Overall, great place for kids, would have given 5 stars but the $10 for admissions for adults and 1 year old.
  • Locals who grew up going to Fairyland regard it very fondly. My three-year-old niece loved it. I like that it's an outdoor activity that uses the imagination. I don't like how rundown the place is and some of the fairy tale themes. It works for the 2-5 toddler set, though not as engaging for parents as other places. Fairyland doesn't have great food and drink offerings, so bring snacks or a picnic. Cool spot for birthday parties. I think they do overnights, too...
  • Well, first off, I would like to say that their customer service was disrespectful. I asked for a cotton candy, and they replied with "Nope. Sorry Buddy. We're out." I didn't like that. Second, I ordered a California Pizza Kitchen Pan Pizza, the Spicy Chipotle Chicken flavor, and I got the barbecue chicken flavor instead. I am very disappointed that I spent a whopping $27.50 to get in.
  • Perfect for kids under 6. It's large enough that they can run around and be crazy, but not large enough that it's a non-stop line waiting hike. It's old (older than disneyland apparently) and not super updated, but young kids don't care about that. It's also cheap, which is a huge plus. Highly recommend as they've done some pretty great things on what I imagine is a pretty lean budget.
  • Did not know what to do on Sunday. We came up from Los Angeles because my wife had a class on Sunday. We stayed in Berkely which unfortunately did not have much for kids to do. My wife found this place at the last minute. Did not know what to expect and I have to say it was different and my kids loved it. Although some of the displays and rides where not working we did spend a good time. I would definitely go again.
