The votes are in and Dutch Wonderland has once again been recognized as the world’s Best Family Park in the Golden Ticket Awards. Lancaster County’s beloved Kingdom for Kids takes home the award for the second straight time.

“At Dutch Wonderland, we strive to deliver the best experience possible every day, and it’s such an honor to see our team’s efforts recognized as the Best Family Park,” said General Manager James Paulding. “Thank you to our team members for their commitment, valued guests for their support, and to the Golden Ticket Awards voters that chose Dutch Wonderland.”

The Golden Ticket Awards were created by Amusement Today and are held annually. Winners of the awards are selected by a panel of experienced park enthusiasts from around the globe. Award categories include Best Food, Best Children’s Park, Best Park, Cleanest Park and many more.

Dutch Wonderland opened the kingdom gates for the first time in 1963. Since then, the park has remained true to its design, offering an amusement park with young families in mind. Today, the park is home to more than 35 rides, attractions and shows, including kid-friendly roller coasters such as Merlin’s Mayhem and Kingdom Coaster. The park’s Duke’s Lagoon features a multi-level water play platform, kid-sized slides and a large tipping bucket.

“There’s such a feeling of charm and atmosphere at Dutch Wonderland,” said Tim Baldwin, Golden Ticket Awards Communications Coordinator, Amusement Today. “I had a lovely visit myself this year. It is no surprise that families have enjoyed the park for generations, and it has clearly resonated with the voters.”

Dutch Wonderland’s sister parks also garnered recognition with Golden Ticket Awards voters. Idlewild and SoakZone, a few hours east in Ligonier, Pa., placed third in the Best Family Park category, while America’s Oldest Amusement Park, Lake Compounce in Bristol, Conn,. splashed onto the list of Best New Water Rides. Venus Vortex made its debut this summer as part of Lake Compounce’s 175th Birthday Celebrations and earned fourth place among voters in the Best New Water Rides category. Dutch Wonderland visitors ready for a road trip can maximize their fun at home or on the go with a 2022 Platinum Pass, available now in six easy payments and including free admission to Idlewild, Lake Compounce, and other amusement parks including Kennywood near Pittsburgh and Splish Splash Waterpark in New York.
