Our nephews loved Midway State Park - the rides are classics and everything is designed for the younger child. Midway is very clean and all the rides appear well maintained and in excellent shape. Recommend!

I remember places like this, scaled for children, from when I was young in the 1950s. This must be one of the few amusement parks that still offer you that experience. Everything was originally scaled for kids and it still is. Our grandkids loved it.More

Does anyone know where I can find height requirements for the rides? I was debating bringing my 3 and 5 year old. Would like to know ahead of time which rides they each can ride.

Height requirements are listed at each ride that has limits. Measuring the child height can be done at the ticket counter where there are height measurement tables posted on the building.
