  • I love Delgrossos Amusement Park! It's a wonderful place to bring the family and it is such a fun and positive environment. The owners and staff are extremely nice and helpful, and and just make you feel extremely welcome. The new addition to the water park is wonderful as well. It was beautifully done and I love going there with my family and (and the kiddos love it too :)
  • We went on Labor Day weekend and had a great time. The admission price was only $10 (a Labor Day special) so very reasonable. There was a great selection of food, and the aquatic activities were a lot of fun. Would definitely come back.
  • Great place for kids. Get a season pass, it's the best deal. Great food, great water park. Try the pizza and cheese steaks!
  • We love DelGrosso's Amusement Park. We're only about 20 minutes away, and its a very nice clean family oriented place to spend a day. The food is WAY better than your typical "park foods"! If you're planning a trip here, be sure to clip a coupon off of DelGrosso's spaghetti sauce for $3 off!
