The park is loads of fun, but the RV's are loaded with lice and need to be updated/sprayed. I would not recommend staying at Darien Lake. Our family ended up with lice after the visit.

This is your standard average amusement park, there's really nothing special here besides Moose on the Loose! Don't miss that attraction

Fright fest was a farce. You pay almost$40 to enter the park and you're expecting zombies and all the scary things they advertise but there's a catch. You have to pay extra for all of the haunted attractions. Ridiculous money waisted. Very disappointed! NEVER AGAIN!

I was visiting Ontario from Scotland and we drove over to this amusement park for a couple of days. Good value for money, even with the mileage. Much cheaper than Canada's Wonderland. Queues are not as long. Highly enjoyable day

My family and I stayed at the Lodge on the Lake. Our weekend stay included a free breakfast buffet which was really good. We enjoyed all rides especially the roller coaster.

My girls earned free tickets from participating in a reading contest at school, so off we went. My biggest gripe was the parking fee of $20, which had just doubled overnight according to the attendant. That’s Disney pricing and this place ain’t WDW. The lines...More

The parking fee increased by $10 but with season passes parking was still free. The crowd was not bad at all. The theme was zombies and upon 6:00pm the park filled with fog and perfect lighting to set the tone. There were many popular rides...More

We camped at Darien Lake at the end of August with our two kids, ages 16 and 3. Our campside backed up against the park boundaries so had no one behind us. Neighbours on both sides but it was nice and quiet at night. I...More

We camped at the park this weekend. We brought our own camper to the campsite. It was very clean, large, and well shaded. It was a full hookup site. We decided not to hookup our sewer because the drains were high up, but there was...More
