“Smaller park shorter lines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

For the Texas panhandle this is a nice place to visit and avoid the longer lines at the major amusement parks. There are rides for all ages, but the night we went all were not working. There are passes as others have mentioned and I agree, all rides are not covered. I believe these are the newer rides and probably paying them off. Similar to what the larger theme parks did many years ago. I am guessing that the one price ticket hasn't made its way to the panhandle. We took our granddaughters who were visiting from Seattle and they were surprised. They definitely said it wasn't like the larger parks, but did like the smaller lines and enjoyed all the rides. The only ride that they didn't enjoy was the bumper cars. It appears they need to remove a few of the cars because it is so crowded you can't really do much, but sit for the entire ride. There are nights when the passes are cheaper so you need to review the web site to see which nights work best.

“Not so wonderful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

If you're looking for an amusement park(in Amarillo), this is it. It's no six flags, but you may enjoy it. I think it's over priced and over rated. The biggest rip off is your admission doesn't even cover all of the rides in the park. Who ever heard of such right?!?

“Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Lots of rides, pay per ride or buy a ticket for all rides. Only dislike is the ticket does no cover most popular rides, which means you have to pay extra.

“Great amusement park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Wonderland Park in Amarillo is a great amusement park. It is home owned as it has been from the beginning and it is so well run. It fits kids of every age. It is a safe, fun place and surprisingly large for a medium size city. Highly recommended.

Great,clean,friendly and economical. Ride choice covers all ages and no lines. Roller coaster are all fun and different. The new shelter really adds to the ambiance and provides a rest area,or meeting place for the entire family.

The Tiki Villiage provide a private place for the family . Really is a Quality place for the family.

All ages can ride and have fun. A real asset for Amarillo and the area.
