Dutch Wonderland
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Location: Lancaster, Pennsylvania, United States
Owner: Palace Entertainment
Opened: 1963
Area: 48 acres
Rides: 34 total with 2 roller coasters and 6 water rides
Slogan: ''A Kingdom for Kids''

Dutch Wonderland is a 48 acre amusement park just east of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, appealing primarily to families with small children. The park's theme is a ''Kingdom for Kids''. The entrance to the park has a real stone castle faŤade, which was built by Earl Clark, a potato farmer, before he opened the park in 1963.

The Clark family sold Dutch Wonderland in 2001 to Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company. They also operate Wonderland Mini Golf, and Old Mill Stream Campground at the same location and the Gift Shop at Kitchen Kettle Village, in nearby Intercourse. On November 12, 2010, Hershey Entertainment announced that they sold Dutch Wonderland to Palace Entertainment. Fernando Eiroa, Palace Entertainment President and CEO, commented, ''We are very proud of the integration of a leading park like Dutch Wonderland within our group. We are fully aware of the unique position that Dutch Wonderland holds within its community and we will be doing everything to enhance the Dutch Wonderland brand, while keeping the special family appeal of the park.''

Today, the park has 34 rides, plus a tropical themed interactive water play area called Duke's Lagoon. The park also has an extended season, open for ''Happy Hauntings'' and ''Dutch Winter Wonderland'' events for Halloween and Christmas. The park is part of a larger area in Lancaster zoned for entertainment, dining, lodging, and conferences.

Attractions

Dutch Wonderland features 34 rides, a water park called Duke's Lagoon (named for a purple dragon costumed character), along with shows and games for children. In addition to Duke the dragon, the park also features costumed characters Princess Brooke, and the Knight.

Current roller coasters
Dutch Wonderland has two operating rollercoasters.

Kingdom Coaster 1992
A wooden rollercoaster, the first coaster ever built by Custom Coasters International. Uses a single Philadelphia Toboggan Company train with buzz bars. The park's monorail runs through the structure of the ride. The ride was once painted white, and is currently painted blue. It was named the Sky Princess until the 2007 season.

Joust 1998
A steel ''Big Dipper'' style rollercoaster, manufactured by Chance Rides. It sits where the Flying Trapeze once stood, in front of the Kingdom Coaster. Chance's prototype Big Dipper Coaster.
