It's not Disneyland or anything. But it's like a step up from the State fair. Same food, a few more "big" rides. I haven't been in a while, but I think you are best off going when you have a coupon, since it can get kind of pricey for what it is. It's only open in the Summer.

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.

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?!?

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.

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.
