There is still so much summer time left to enjoy a visit to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. We were offered tickets to visit and we chose to make it a day trip from NY, but you could easily stay over and enjoy the area.
Enter through the castle and begin your magical day!
Visiting Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster
Dutch Wonderland is a 43-acre family amusement park with over 35 rides, Duke’s Lagoon water play area, Exploration Island, live entertainment, games and food. It might be smaller than other parks, but it was perfect for us to enjoy all it had to offer for all levels of thrill seekers in our group. We went on a very hot day and had a very cool experience!
How excited was I to see that they offered Dole Whip! This is definitely one of my favorite dessert treats.
The Space Shuttle is one of my daughters’ favorites. I think they went on 3 times!
I love classic rides and nothing can be more classic than the swings. The Flying Trapeze brought a cool breeze on a hot day as well as smiles from our group.
Another highlight of our visit was the Double Splash Log Flume. Through the years, we have always had a great time on log flumes and this was a fun one!
Merlin’s Mayhem roller coaster was definitely a crowd-pleaser for our risk-takers.
When the heat of the day gets to you, head to Duke’s Lagoon for some cool off time in the water. From the Pipeline Plunge tube slides to water-spilling park moments, you will have a blast.
Don’t forget to take some fun pics with the Dutch-inspired horse and buggy as well as the fellow Amish. Lancaster is home to Amish Country and there is so much to see and do too.
