Recommended Posts

I decided to take the kids to Adventureland on Memorial Day. For some reason they felt like I owed them a day there because I went without them when the Alvey's were here a couple weeks ago. We arrived at the park at 1 p.m. and spent the next 6 hours riding everything they wanted. The only lines in the park were for the Raging River and River Rapids Log Ride, and they were only about 10 - 15 minutes. Erich (age 9) rode The Tornado and Spaceshot for the first time. He is finally at that age where he will ride just about anything.

 

Adventureland is a family owned park in Altoona, Iowa. It features "Over 100 rides, shows, and attractions!" There is something for all ages in the park.

 

One of the greatest things about Adventureland is the employees. A few years ago they focused more on hiring seniors citizens instead of teenagers. The operations are second to none, dispatches are speedy, and the ride ops do more than just push a button and get back to text messaging. If the Golden Ticket Awards were not such a fanboy voting party Adventureland would be at or near the top for best employees every year.

 

Because this is such a great park that not many of you have been to, here is a Photo TR of Adventureland from A to Z. If you would like to see more of the coasters look for Robbs trip report with on ride video coming soon!

Underground - Indoor "coaster"

Trash cans - Almost like Cedar Fair! Until you go back and look at all the trees in the pictures. (Wild West World may look this good in 40 years)
