Dutch Wonderland is a 43-acre family amusement park with over 35 rides, Duke’s Lagoon water-play area, live entertainment, games and food. The Park is home to Princess Brooke, Duke the Dragon, the Knight of Safety, and Merlin.
HISTORY: Opened in 1963 by Earl Clark, the Park originally offered just four rides on 14 acres. Throughout the years, the Clark family added more rides and attractions. Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, which also owns Hersheypark, purchased the property in 2001. In November 2010, Palace Entertainment, a California based company, purchased Wonderland Amusement Management which includes Dutch Wonderland, Old Mill Stream Campground and other related properties from Hershey Entertainment & Resorts. Dutch Wonderland continues to enjoy growth and change, while keeping the unique charm and family focus established by the Clarks.
NEW IN 2017: Dutch Wonderland is excited to announce its first suspended family roller coaster, Merlin’s Mayhem, scheduled to open during the summer of 2017. Merlin’s Mayhem will feature new thrills, twists and turns, as guests experience an enchanted journey with Dutch Wonderland’s friendly magician, Merlin.
