The best park I have ever went in. The rides are so exciting and the best part is that the foods are right on the budget.

The games offer so much fun as well as the rides. The tickets are not that costly and are very affordable for anyone.

Kiddieland does not allow you to bring your own food. We spent 45 minutes in a line to order some pizza slices and another 15 minutes to get the food. Later I stood in another line to get some fries and a drink. After waiting for 30 minutes with just 8 people ahead of me I ended up only with a slush drink. It turns out they have two lines - one for grilled items including fries and stuff, and another line for beverages. I should have gone near the counter and looked through the glass which is where it says "treats window" and the next window said "grill window". Apparently the two other old men in front of me also didnt see it either. I asked the counter to help me with the order in the other counter right by his side as my 2 year old was getting restless after a 30 minute wait. The staff flatly refused. I would give Kiddieland a 1 star for food service. A 3-star for the quality of the food.

Otherwise - Rides are good - the lines for the rides were not so bad - ironically. I had to stand 45 minutes on this labor day weekend for some of their top rides - like a splash mountain for the smaller kids. Will give it a 4 star for the rides. There are not too many rides. You can finish the park in 4-5 hours.

Eat at home, find a fast food place outside, beat the peak lunch time - and enjoy the rides.

Thanks

I treasure my memories of Kiddieland. This is a great amusement park for younger children; older children will want more of a thrill. The rides are classic and there are lots of games to be played! The prices are reasonable and you will enjoy a day filled with adventure and fun.

My 3 and 6 yr olds love this place. I think the prices are too steep! $20.25 for ages 6 and up and $17.25 for 3-5 yrs! For a family of 4 that is almost $80 right there! It is nice that 2 and under are addmited free. They also offer free sodas, so it is nice that you don't have to buy any drinks. You can leave to eat by getting a hand stamp, and a mcdonalds is right across the street. If you go after 5pm, price drop to $17.25 and $14.25. Alot of fun.

KiddieLand is perfect for those younger kids who are not ready to go to Six Flags yet. Their rides are catered to kids in the 5-13 age group. Parents can spend some quality time with their kids here.

PROS: Good for younger kids
CONS: Price

Kiddieland has been around for years and it is just wonderful. If you have small children, I highly recommend going here. Great rides, great fun! This is what an amusement park SHOULD be. You don't feel crowded, you don't feel overwhelmed by a million things. It's just beautiful! The game prices are on the low to normal size. The prizes are typical. Great food and you can even leave and come back with a hand stamp.

Kiddieland has been open since 1929, and I hope it stays open for many years to come! I went here a few times every summer as a kid with all my cousins and we loved it... I look forward to going back with my own kids someday. The rides here are mainly for younger children, but there are some newer rides that cater to everyone. Lines are never very long for anything. The tilt-o-whirl and "Little Dipper" roller coaster were always favorites. Kids will find plenty here to keep them entertained all day long. Kiddieland is a lot more sentimental kind of a place than more commercialized amusement parks, like Great America.

For my money and effort there are plenty of better places to take kids to than the kiddieland-that-time-forgot. I walked away very unimpressed with everything. When one or two rides go down you feel ripped off. I would rather take the kids to a bigger place and spend more than to go to Kiddieland.

PROS: small, quaint
CONS: bad concessions, rides break alot, expensive

This is a fun amusement park for younger kids. It's on a smaller scale that allows for the younger children, who have a hard time walking through a larger park like Six Flags, still enjoy a amusement park. They have a small roller coaster, antique cars that follow a track, a train that tours around the whole park, and a carousel. The only negative I can say, is it's very expensive. I think $17 admission for a 6 year old is excessive... but with all that said, you and your kids will be entertained for hours.

Kiddeland is an original. I remember my parents taking me there when I was a little girl. I have taken my son there many times and will always trteasure the memories. Even thogh most of the rides only go around in circles, they are just perfect for little ones. With the addition of larger rides several years ago, there are now rides for pre-teens and teens. The pricing is still very reasonable, and I look forward to one day bringing my grandchildren there.

Just the mention of "Kiddieland" when I was a child used to send me screaming through the house! When my mom said she was taking me here, you could hear me squealing with delight for miles away. I love their down to earth atmosphere, fun rides, great goodies and their friendly staff. I love their bumper cars, log rides and fun cotton candy. Will make you feel like a 5 year old again (and that's a good thing at time :) Enjoy!

PROS: You will have a blast!
CONS:

I'm happy to see, with so many places from my childhood gone, that Kiddieland is still around. I used to go here all the time when I was younger, and have re-visited a few times as an adult. Although the park is not as large as some other amusement parks, it's still a fun place to spend a day and it's pretty inexpensive to get it. They have a variety of rides for all ages as well as carnival games, an arcade, and food vendors.

This is a great place to take your kids. They have a really nice park and is really inexpensive to get an all-day park. They have plenty of things to do inside the park, and people of all ages will have find plenty of things to do for the entire day.

Kiddie Land has been around forever, and with good reason! They offer a pretty good variety of rides, games, and concessions that the whole family can enjoy. It's a great place for a child's birthday party since the rides are pretty tame and no one's likely to get sick after going on them.

My family and I love this park. I recommend this especially for families. The rides are catered for all ages. You pay one fee to get in, which is very inexpensive, and stay all day. You will absolutely love it.
