  • Great place for families with small children. Older children and teens enjoy this park for the nostalgia from their own young days. There are a couple snack shacks which are reasonably priced and a gift shop. The park is free admission and operates on donations. This is also among the stops for Rapid City's trolley so makes for a good day out with your family in the summer.
  • This place is fun for the whole family! We have brought kids ranging in age from 6 months-7 years old and they have all enjoyed it equally (and so have the adults!) It is free to the public but they do accept and appreciate donations.
  • Amazing place to go with your little ones. Or big kids honestly. My family of five had a blast! So many cute and fun things for your children to do!
  • It's a great place for kids. I still enjoy it at 15. It's a place you don't see every day. I absolutely love it! 😍
  • Incredible park, especially since it is a free park. So much to do from the train to the dozens of themed play sets. A wonderful place to kill several hours with the whole family.

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90. If you want a scenic escape, look for a bed and breakfast, campsite, or cabin in the surrounding Black Hills National Forest.
