Took grandsons to this park and they enjoy the water area more than anything. Food is pricey but no different at any other amusement park. Parking was hectic as there were lots of visitors when we went.

Although I cannot speak specifically about rides for younger kids, (I go with older kids, teens), BG has something for everyone. Huge park and I recall there being rides for younger kids, about 4-5 years old.
