I wrote this post back in 2015. Since then, my kids have grown up past wanting to go to the Land of Make Believe. However, in all honesty, we had made the best memories there. I hope this place is around when I have grandkids, or nieces and nephews.
We have made another visit to the Land Of Make Believe and Pirate’s Cove. This time it was with my little one’s friend, and my older son came along. For those of you who don’t know, The Land Of Make Believe is a water park and rides rolled into one package. Both aren’t enormously large, and can easily be explored by youngsters in one day without being exhausted or missing out. Well, maybe just a little exhausted. It is such a nice place to visit on a hot summer day. We enjoyed everything with the water: the pool, the lazy river, every single slide about ten times each. It was a glorious summer day.
After all the water activities we got dressed and went on a few rides. They are geared more toward younger crowd, so while the younger ones enjoyed it, the older one would do it to please them. I think he would have a lot more fun if one of his friends came along, and they could be allowed to stay on the water slides all day. The water slides are fun at any age. The splashing pool and the rides are more for the younger crowd.

The park is on a pricey side, for four people it’s about a $100.00 to get in. It is worth it to spend a whole day there, having fun. Also, keep in mind that food is only allowed in the designated food areas, and there are no coolers. On the pool side, you can’t really carry anything and have to wear swimming suits. While on the ride side, you have to wear shoes and clothing.
We come light. Just wearing shorts and swimsuits, not carrying anything, but a WATER BOTTLE and an old camera, but even those items have to go in the locker for everyone to have a great time. The lunch stays in the car and we eat it later in the parking lot or bring it in for a picnic at the picnic area at some point. This time we wore water shoes. Bad idea! Water shoes were not allowed on the rides, so we had to put them away. However, they already got wet, and were hard to put on. Flip flops would have been a much better idea. WATERPROOF POUCH is a must at this place. We also rent a locker every time to keep our stuff in. Next time, I think we might leave the bag with sandwiches in the locker as well.
It is a great place to visit with kids in the summertime. We all enjoyed our visit to Land Of Make Believe yet again, and will definitely go back there again while the kids are young.
They have a great website with prices, hours, directions and much more: Land Of Make Believe.
Here are a few photos from our visits there:
