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.
