Fancy a tea party, anyone?

A Lancaster County amusement park is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and they've got plenty of fun lined up.

New ride

Since 1963, Dutch Wonderland has been all about providing family fun for locals and tourists alike.

Topsy Turvy Tea Party is a new ride and Dutch Wonderland’s very own version of the classic teacup ride. Jump in a cup with family and friends and give it a whirl. Spin fast, slow, or just sit back and relax, how you ride is all up to you.

Easter vibes

For their 60th birthday, they're also adding an event to the park: “Dutch Wonderland’s Eggcellent Easter Celebration” is kicking off next month.

Each weekend in April the park is open, and you can enjoy festive fun - including their new puppet show "Talent Show Turmoil," a new scavenger hunt, and meet the newest addition to the wonderland crew - Tuft, the Easter Bunny.

Sounds fun!

Park history

With over 35 rides, attractions, and shows, Lancaster County's own amusement park is a cool, local spot to enjoy quality time with family. The area is designed for families with young children and offers a ton of things to do, including several rides ideal for the young crowd.

Since the park had its grand opening six decades ago, Dutch Wonderland has been acknowledged as a premier family theme park in Pennsylvania multiple times, and has been voted one of the Top 5 Best Kid’s Parks in the World by Amusement Today magazine.

If you're heading out, make sure to arrive right when they open to (hopefully) avoid long lines.
