A day of family entertainment
Last fall, we went on a trip to Darien Lake Theme Park. We got admission tickets at a rebate of 20 percent. The park has entertainment for all but full prices are too high.
My 4 year old nephew and 6 year old son were ready to ride all the big rollercoaster’s, but their height requirements did not allow them to enjoy all rides. Our kids enjoyed exciting rides in all other roller coasters, and did not want to come for the food or drink.

The food was horrible and costly. There were not enough seats or lounges, people ended up sitting on the grass everywhere. The bathrooms were very clean.

First of all, I’ll mention that this is not my first visit at the Darien Lake Theme Park. I’ve been there before, when there were different owners. The lines were longer in the past, but the shows were better as well. Darien remains a great park to visit with the family, thanks to the entertainment options and their smaller prices if you happen to catch the discounts. Paying the full price might not be worth it. You can save a bit of money by bringing a cooler with some drinks with you, as the soda and water available for sale there are quite expensive.

Good Amusement Park
An hour outside of Rochester, Darien Lake is the best amusement park in the area. Great for people of all ages.

Plan on spending at lest one day because there are rides you are going to want to ride again. Two Air conditioned sit down restaurants.

Excellent water park with tons to offer. Staff is generally friendly and will help if needed.
