"It's Family Time" has been the longtime mantra of Dutch Wonderland. A kingdom featuring over 35 rides and attractions, Duke's Lagoon Water Park, Exploration Island, shows, and more. This park has been a staple of tradition for generations in the Lancaster area. Founded in 1963 by potato farmer Earl Clark, the young and the old have been bringing their royal court through the castle gates to share in that magic. Now, this title of a staple for family fun has been made official (once again).

The kingdom is honored to be voted by Amusement Today “2021’s Best Family Park” for the second year in a row. Dutch Wonderland was blessed to be the first recipient of this title when it was added to the awards back in 2019. Due to the ever changing landscape and the effects of COVID-19, Amusement Today halted the awards in 2020.

Winning the award has been a true honor for the entire team at the park. “At Dutch Wonderland, we strive to deliver the best experience possible every day, and it’s such an honor to see our team’s efforts recognized as the Best Family Park,” said General Manager James Paulding. “Thank you to our team members for their commitment, valued guests for their support, and to the Golden Ticket Awards voters that chose Dutch Wonderland.”

When asked about Dutch Wonderland, Tim Baldwin, Golden Ticket Awards Communications Coordinator, Amusement Today stated, “There’s such a feeling of charm and atmosphere at Dutch Wonderland. I had a lovely visit myself this year. It is no surprise that families have enjoyed the park for generations, and it has clearly resonated with the voters.”

Dutch Wonderland is excited to start welcoming guests back into the kingdom for the 2022 Season, which is scheduled to start April 30, 2022. Haven’t been to the kingdom in a while? They’d love to have you!

Have a Dutch-Wonderful Day!
