Dutch Wonderland, The Kingdom for Kids, which opened in 1963, announced its 60th Birthday season will bring the largest capital investment in years with the debut of a new ride, new Easter event, new in-park entertainment and expanded food and shopping offerings.
The celebration begins on April 1, the park’s earliest opening date in decades. Dutch Wonderland’s Eggcellent Easter Celebration will feature larger-than-life Easter eggs, dozens of photo opportunities and thousands of blooming spring flowers throughout the park. A brand new character also joins Duke the Dragon and the rest of Dutch Wonderland’s royal crew for Easter. Tuft, Dutch Wonderland’s very own Easter bunny, will meet and greet with guests throughout the Eggcellent Easter Celebration for family photo opportunities. This new seasonal event will operate every Saturday and Sunday in April.
Also debuting this spring, Topsy Turvy Tea Party will join Dutch Wonderland’s ride lineup to put a spin on a theme park classic. Spin fast, spin slow, or just sit back and relax — guests can decide how to ride. This spinning teacup attraction will open between Sky Fighter and the entrance to Duke’s Lagoon water play area.
Also premiering in 2023, join Brady, Gladwin, Pamela, Sofia and Sterling as they work together to create a spectacle to remember in the all-new Talent Show Turmoil. This crew will also debut new original shows for the summer season and Happy Hauntings with more details to come later this year.
“As we celebrate 60 years of family memories, we’re heading into the most exciting phase in our history,” said James Paulding, Dutch Wonderland General Manager. “Our new ride, Easter event, shows, and enhanced retail and food locations will help us elevate family bonding opportunities through magical experiences that put kids at the center of it all.”
