Nestled within the foothills of the beautiful Laurel Highlands, just outside of Ligonier, PA, you’ll find Idlewild & SoakZone, named “Best Kids Park in the World” by Amusement Today, and “Best Park for Families” by the National Amusement Park Historical Association. Since 1878, the park has been providing smiles, laughter, and memories longer than almost every other amusement park in the United States. With 18 major rides, 14 kiddie rides, a large water park, shows, and unique attractions like Story Book Forest and Jumpin’ Jungle, Idlewild & SoakZone strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern-day amusement. And the finest part of your visit is what you get to take home with you when you leave – distinctive family memories that will last a lifetime.
If you have a Daniel Tiger fan, they will be more than thrilled to hop on the Trolley and take a ride through the interactive Mister Rogers' Neighborhood! Be warned though, "Come along, come along, to the neighborhood Hug 'n Song" will get stuck in your head. :)
NEW FOR 2016:
Idlewild & SoakZone is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Story Book Forest this summer by introducing a new Enchanted Castle! Guests visiting the castle will have the pleasure of meeting the beautiful Princess Lily and the loveable Duke the Dragon. In the castle courtyard, young and old, can try their hand at removing the famed sword in the stone, Excalibur. It is said that whosoever removeth the sword is destined for royalty! Mother Goose, Little Red Riding Hood, Captain Candy, and all the other residents of Story Book Forest are excited to welcome Princess Lily, Duke, and the new Enchanted Castle to the forest….and all of you too!
