  • We took my 14 month old son there recently. He was a bit limited on what he could do because of his size and/age but there was enough to do and see for an hour and half visit. The park is definitely o...  read more »
  • It seems was helpful to make Disneyland amusement park. It is not too wide. Small children can enjoy it.

  • Fairyland is truly magical for tots 2-10 years of age. Lots to see and do. Many bright eyes are to be seen. 
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • My daughter loves this place. The only place that has a kid size ferris wheel. Great for kids aged 2-4. Similar to Happy Hollow in SJ, but smaller. It is next to Lake Merritt, which is great for walking. If you can get street parking that would be nice, but paid parking is good too.
  • Ahh idk it didnt seem worth the price.
