We went here years ago with a younger child and this time it was just us 2 adults. I would say younger kids, ~5-10 years old, would enjoy the carnival rides more. We were able to go on and in a few attractions and we...More

We enjoyed the buildings with the antiques. There were many items that brought back memories for my husband and myself. We are disappointed the antique items seem to be at the mercy of the elements. It took about two hours for us to walk all...More

Fun for all the family. Lots of things to do and see, gift shop and of course, the gigantic talking Paul Bunyan!

This place is fun, don't get me wrong..but the prices are ridiculous and it is not open very late at all. It was MUCH better when it was in town (where Kohls is now).

Surprised that this got so many good reviews. The admission price is $20 per person (unless you are a senior). So, a family of two parents with 3 kids will pay a whopping $100. The amusement park is, well, a bit odd and peculiar. It...More

Like many others, I can hear perhaps 30 years ago with our 5-6 year olds, when it was located in Baxter. It's dramatically different now - but still strongly recommended for families with youngsters ages 2 or 3 to between 12 and 14. There is...More

So, there's Paul--an enormous lumberjack (25 ft.?) who addresses your kids by name, then banters with them and you take photos with him. Then there's a dozen or so old carnival rides which seem to never have lines--you ride as much as you want. And...More
