Kids love it here!

Use to come here as a kid, and it brings me so much joy to share that with my kids! Fairyland will always be apart of our summer outings!

This park advertises itself as the inspiration for Disneyland. Think early 1950s. This is a very dated, low-tech, unsupervised (even in potentially dangerous areas) park that is in need of maintenance and repair. Most things are stationary and use the "magic" key to hear a very scratchy rendition of the fairy tales. There are 4 rides -- 2 merry-go-rounds, a... More

This place is adorable. Luckily my husband stayed home with two sick kiddos so it was just my 4 year old daughter and I. The cost is $10/person to enter! After the $5 parking. There is no way $50 is worth it to take the whole family here. Beware parking is crazy on the weekends. It may be a long... More

And reasonable! Spend the day! So much to do for the kids and not overwhelming for grandparents! Be sure to get the "bracelet "

We took our two girls, 6 and 11, this week and they had a nice time. Much more suited to the 6, but still enjoyable for all of us. Highlights were: Alice in Wonderland (there are 21 smiles hidden throughout the tunnel and we went through several times until we found them all), the train ride, whale, and sliding down... More

This is a wonderful place for quality family bonding. Very sweet and cute attractions, the talking story books and magic keys are still delightful. Love it!

We took my 14 month old son there recently. He was a bit limited on what he could do because of his size and/age but there was enough to do and see for an hour and half visit. The park is definitely older and could use some fresh paint here or there however, it is still a very unique spot.... More

Full disclosure, I've been a member for 2 years, ever since my kid was 1.5 years old. He still LOVES it. We go at least 15 times a year and it doesn't get old. Pros: - You have to have a kid to get in, so it's safe on lots of levels. - Several appropriate (small) mechanical rides geared toward... More

Took our 5 year for a half day of riding (free with your admission ticket) the 4 rides and exploring the different part of the park. Even with some of the key machines not working properly, there was so much to see and do. At the end of the park hours, there was a puppet show - perfect ending to... More
