Our kids had a great time! We were 2 families (4 adults, and 3 kids) and decided to buy the 4 all day passes deal they had (for the 3 kids and 1 of the adults). We had two 5-year olds and an 8-year old, and they were able to do all the little kid rides, with the exception of a couple that the 8-year old was too tall for. Definitely an older style of amusement park, but the kids had a great time. But if you're going in the summer (like we did), I would wait until after 6pm to go. We got there just after it opened at 4pm, and were dying of heat for the first few hours. My only caution is for any Canadians. I usually travel with very little American cash, and use my credit card for most transactions. I had no issues with my credit card everywhere I used it throughout our whole vacation, with the exception of Family Kingdom. I tried it at the ticket booth and at one of the drink stands, and both times was told my card was declined. ( I believe it was because they don't have the chip technology that my credit card has). Thankfully, we were with family that could cover our costs, but if not, we would have been out of luck.

"Fake Amusement Park"

Do not be fooled by the name. They should not be called amusement park. Not even remotely close to that. Just be aware, you may or may not be thrown some bs on why your kid can not ride alone. This is where they have tourist by the you know what’s. Do not be suckered into the all day wristband, not worth the money, at least for the kids.we have two boys ( 7 and 9 ) and are rather tall for their ages. There have rides there, that both of my boys have rode by theirselves hundreds of times. Either at our local carnival or at the Sweetest place on earth. Now all of a sudden my oldest is too short to ride this. I was like are you kidding. Then came the bumper cars. That was the final straw. How in the world is he too short to ride this by himself? I was done after that. This place is a scam. So I had to buy a wristband, instead of wasting money. After I bought mine, my oldest and me hoped on the Swamp Fox. This roller coaster should be dumped in a swamp. We figured it was similar to the Comet at Hershey, well we were wrong. This coaster in the most unsafest coaster I have ever been on. We were tossed around and beat to a pulp. To where my back is still killing me. So they say they have 38 rides, how come we were only able to ride 7? Down at our local beach, we have two places to ride rides. $30 for 7 rides, absolute joke. What seems to be a good deal, is only to rip people off. $30 for an all day wristband. Ok sounds like good deal, an all day wristband means all day, not 6-8 hours. $30 for my kids to ride a total of 7 rides, yeah huge ripoff. Do not buy into free entry to the park. You still have to $7 to park there. If you blink, you’ll pass it like we did 3 times.

We took our kids and then later our grandaughter over the past 30 or so years. We love this place. My husband and I visited Family Kingdom by ourselves this past weekend. Love to ride the wooden rollercoaster and play games. Not a large or fancy amusement park but still a lot of fun!
