We visited our daughter and family in August 2018 and she suggested we try Fantasyland. What a great choice. Had a great time. Staff was wonderful and facility was excellent. We definitely go again if in the area.

We absolutely loved our day here from start to finish. Free parking, friendly and helpful staff, oodles of water slides and Tarzan ropes, paddle boards/kayaks and an affordable snack bar. The lake is clean with a sandy bottom - no need for water shoes. We...More
