Check out Adventureland Amusement Park in Altoona, Iowa, if you’re looking for a day filled with nonstop thrills, chills, and smiles. Opened Aug. 19, 1974, Adventureland has been bringing joy to families ever since. With such a wide variety of things to do, it’s fun for the whole family. Give the “Saw Mill Splash” a try if you’re into big water slides shooting you out a tunnel into a sea of fun! Or, if you want to stay dry and get behind the wheel for a few minutes, try “Frantic Freeway,” Adventureland’s version of bumper cars. Children 3 and under get into the park free of charge.
“The Storm Chaser” spinning swing ride debuted at Adventureland Park in 2014. 2016 brings “The Monster,” a steel coaster with a 133-foot lift hill and speeds reaching up to 65 mph.
