You could call Dutch Wonderland a 'kiddie park', but it's still worth a visit if you are in the area and looking for a park where you can just 'relax', which is something I noticed with these smaller 'kiddie parks'. None of that rush-rush-rush that you find at the giant theme parks. This one is incredibly colorful and has a wide range of rides and shows that will appeal to everyone, including some old rides that you might have thought were gone forever, such as a haunted swing and rocket simulator that just rocks back and forth with a really bad tv screen in front. There was also a 'country bear' type show. The wooden rollercoaster, the Kingdom Coaster, is small but packs a punch. The best show there is their high diving show about a frog prince. It rained most of the time I was there, and I had to leave early, since I had more places to visit that day. If you're in the area check it out. Outside the park is a fudge shop, and these cute girls working there talked me into buying some fudge. While I was in there, a fire truck and ambulance raced into the Ducth Wonderland parking lot to attend to someone at a car. Don't know more than that. Across the street is the Lancaster Host Golf Resort.
