We took our two girls, 6 and 11, this week and they had a nice time. Much more suited to the 6, but still enjoyable for all of us. Highlights were: Alice in Wonderland (there are 21 smiles hidden throughout the tunnel and we went through several times until we found them all), the train ride, whale, and sliding down... More

This is a wonderful place for quality family bonding. Very sweet and cute attractions, the talking story books and magic keys are still delightful. Love it!

We took my 14 month old son there recently. He was a bit limited on what he could do because of his size and/age but there was enough to do and see for an hour and half visit. The park is definitely older and could use some fresh paint here or there however, it is still a very unique spot.... More

Fairyland is truly magical for tots 2-10 years of age. Lots to see and do. Many bright eyes are to be seen.

Full disclosure, I've been a member for 2 years, ever since my kid was 1.5 years old. He still LOVES it. We go at least 15 times a year and it doesn't get old. Pros: - You have to have a kid to get in, so it's safe on lots of levels. - Several appropriate (small) mechanical rides geared toward... More

Took our 5 year for a half day of riding (free with your admission ticket) the 4 rides and exploring the different part of the park. Even with some of the key machines not working properly, there was so much to see and do. At the end of the park hours, there was a puppet show - perfect ending to... More

My 1 year old daughter and j went with some friends who have a 5 y/o, a 4 y/o and a 2 y/o. There was something for everyone. It is $10/person to get in. A family pass for 5 is $100, but it will more than pay for itself if you use it more than twice. My daughter was too... More

Growing up in Oakland, I first went to Fairyland around 1957. As a 7 year old I remember riding a small steam train that winded around the perimeter of Fairyland. Plus, there were all kinds of swings,slides and jungle gym equipment as well as carts to buy snow-cones, pink popcorn, hot dogs and sodas. Somewhat Disney themed, quite novel back... More

Great place for young children. It is the same entrance fee for ages 1 to 100 and at $10 per person it can be quite expensive. Plenty of rides and things to do. Also a little train.
