I love Adventureland and all of the staff and all of the employees. The only thing I miss is the log ride. They got rid of that, Sad to say.

Spent the entire day here. Kids were running all over to get in line for the next ride. We all had a wonderful day and cant wait to do it again next year. Well worth the money. Clean Park. Staff very helpful, pleasant and acknowledgeable.
