Arnolds Park Amusement Park


For more than a century, Okoboji has been the ideal destination for family vacations. The most popular way to enjoy Okoboji is by spending time in or near its six pristine, glacier-carved lakes. Relax on the sandy beaches that dot the water’s edge. Fish in waterways locally known as an angler’s paradise. Or swim, ski, boat, sail, windsurf or kayak through the lakes’ crystal blue depths. Of course, the Lakes Area provides an ideal backdrop for land-lovers, too, with its lush parks, winding nature trails and beautiful golf courses.

It's a little bit touristy but for the price and joy on the kids' faces is priceless and memorable for years and years to come. The chaperone rate is also nice. The more we explored the entire area the more it really impressed us. The shops and public areas are well worth stopping in as is the maritime museum next door. Very good time.

Fun, nostalgic old time amusement park. Pay per ride or unlimited wristbands. Great place to stroll through on a summer evening. The shops around the park have great souvenirs at reasonable prices. We make numerous stops during a week at the lake.

Check out the new carousel. Hard carved animals to ride on. Many great old school amusement ride including Ferris wheel, carousel, bumper cars, kids coaster, roller coaster, pirate mini golf, and games. Great during the summer, can become crowded on the weekends, open Memorial Day through Labor Day weekends. Plenty of free parking up the street from the park entrance. Great to ride the Ferris wheel and look out over the lake. Shops and food nearby. Rooftop concert stage next door. Boat rides from the queen at the lake and many docks for boats to park at.

Nice small amusement park, with great rides, and entertainment. Their roller coaster is perfectly thrilling. Prices are very high, though. For example, if you don’t have a pass for the day, for 45 seconds of fun on the roller coaster is $8. Food is still expensive as well. Overall nice place to go to though.

An amusement park where time just stands still. You can be a kid again with so many happy memories.... Ive been coming here for over 55 years& now I take my own Grankids. My Daddy's very 1st job was at this amusement park in the 50's. It's a magical place. My own Disneyland as I was growing up. 🎠 Ride the roller coaster🎢 & the Ferris wheel. 🎡Grab some friends& family and go on the bumper cars then play a game of pee wee golf. Have a Nutty bar, then take a ride on our famous Queen. A boat ride around Lake Okoboji ⚓
