For anyone who ever went to Hoffman’s Playland, this is a little trip down memory lane. While most of the rides are the same, it is just not the same feel. This place is still fun for kids, but the rides are a little tired....More

Probably most Capital residents have been or will go to HUCK'S version of what was once HOFFMAN's. Rides are still a good buy and multiple tickets are available at the attraction. Kids size only. Except for the train.

The newly located amusement park is better than its predecessor location. The management takes a great care of the rides and gave much thought to the arrangement of the park rides, parking and staff. The staff is thoughtful and helpful. The design has some space...More

A few for both adults and kids. A train that goes around the perimeter is good for families. A few others that you can sit with kids or go on yourself.
