We took our grandkids there for the day. They didn't want to leave. Loved the show! It was very kid friendly. Small enough to keep track of them but large enough for lots of fun for them!!!!! Thumbs up to the great staff

Fun place for adults with children. Lots of fun things to do. Cost very reasonable and very focused on making the children enjoy each event and ride. Close to Union Railway Museum which makes this a great half day trip.

The restaurant is closed. Only the ice cream parlor, saloon and candy store are serving food. Prices are reasonable.
