  • It's a lot of fun to go here pretty much any time, but my family and I usually go on or around the 4th of July for the fireworks. They put on a great show and you can be really close to them, front ro...  more »

  • This park is packed with fun. I did my research and was aware that it was smaller in comparison to Six Flags or any other big theme park. However that did not take away the fun. There are plenty of ri...  more »

  • A great MN icon. Usually adds a new ride each year. Has thrill rides & wonderful coasters. Also, lots of rides for the young kiddos as well. Fireworks show @ park's closing is excellent!
  • This place is getting run down and dirty, it you like smelly places and people with no manners what so ever running it you, trying to fight with you, then brother this is your place! Time for a total face lift and triple security with people who are not afraid to throw some riffraff out! Not a family place any more...sad. don't get caught in this place after dark, unless you wonder what you picture would look like on the back of a milk carton.
  • Some of it is probably nostalgia having been going here since I can remember and now I am 44 years old and have a daughter of my own. Yes it's expensive but not compared to Mall of America in fact it's a bargain compared to Mall of America and many more rides. Park is always clean even the young staff are well-trained and mostly seem to care. I love taking my daughter here!
  • Lots of rides and fun. Be sure to go during a week day when lines are shorter. Bring a swimsuit, towel and sunglasses. Don't forget to try some dip and dots. Parking is always easy to find. Steel venom is the best ride to start off with. Don't be scared when it locks up and roars. It's all part of the ride.
  • What could be better than visiting the Peanuts Gang for Halloween? Had such a good time! Soak City is transformed into an area for Halloween and Peanuts lovers. Of course Snoopy had his non-scary vampire costume on and posed for pictures.
