Youngsters will beg for return trips to Dutch Wonderland, where tame rides include Duke’s Dozers, Wiggle Racers, Off-Road Rally, Wonder Whip and Frog Hopper. Other features include Exploration Island, where animatronic dinosaurs come to life, and Duke’s Lagoon, a small oasis for water fun. Live entertainment, including parades and music, is part of the fun, too, as is a nearby campground and selection of onsite eateries.
One-day tickets start at $23.75, though multi-day, multi-park (Hersheypark) and season passes are also available. Rent a cabana or locker for an extra fee. Dutch Wonderland is open 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the summer months. Limited hours are offered on weekends, September through December, when the park offers holiday-themed events.
