Wetsern Playland is an El Paso staple for local children growing up. They have many rides as well as some arcade games. Lines are usually not too long of a wait on busy weekends. It is not a spectacular amusement park but it is very enjoyable. You can also enjoy foods, treats, ice creams.

I gave it a 'very good' because with their size and limited space they do a good job with what they have. They employees are very nice for the most part but the very few rotten apples stand out. I would like to see some smoking areas because the nicotine slaves are going to smoke regardless, so policy doesn't work... More

It is not Six Flags, It is not Disneyland, nor do they claim to be. It is just a fun place to go with older / smaller rides. Wish they had more trees for shade. We enjoyed ourselves. It about as expensive as going to baseball game. Will gladly go back. Its better at night when the Temperature goes down.

A long standing El Paso amusement park. Always fun. Decent rides, with a few new ones added. Always good for family and friends.

In a place where fairs don't occur, this place is a great replacement! Our 4 yr old daughter had so much fun here! There were a lot of rides she could do and she loves them all! Definitely would recommend for small children.

It's a fun place for local teenagers even though it only has about 6 big rides. A few hours will do. Across the street is a casino for the adults .

It used to be at Ascarate Park and was beautiful. It is now in the desert and just is boring as can be. We took an out of town guest and he was bored out of his mind.

One of the best old time places to have family fun. Close to the race track and close to the mall. Prices are fair and family friendly.

Imagine if you had your own personal amusement park! This is it! We went on a Thu night after the hot day cooled off. It was nice because we seldom had to wait more than one ride cycle. You can easily get through a dozen rides in 3 hours and still have time for food!

Thank Robert B
