  • 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 so very reasonable. There was a great selection of food, and the aquatic activities were a lot of fun. Would definitely come back.
  • no compaints was wonderfull both times turning it into great place alot different from last year thank you
  • The new additions are incredible the new lazy river is one of the best I've ever been on. The food is great and reasonably priced the pizza is really good! Only complaint is that dippin' dots are 4.25 for a small cup! Yes you heard it right! That's a dollar more than last year. We have always gotten season passes and they are worth it! Great job managing the park and continuing to add new things!
  • Just a jewel in PA, one of the cleanest and we'll run amusement parks in the Country. We traveled 3 hours to get there and it was worth every minute. The staff is well trained and super nice. The Delgrosso Family has a great park. I could not recommend this park enough. Thanks for the memory's
