Definitely get the arm band. We rode for hours and never rode the same thing twice. I have a 11 and 5 year old and they were going constantly. Go in the evening so you can see the 10:00 fireworks!

Not enough thrill rides for the older set. My 11 year old granddaughter enjoyed it but the 13 &16 year old grandsons were a bit bored.

"Fun, but Beware of the Giant Roller Coaster!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2018 NEW
Family Kingdom is a very fun amusement park, but be extremely cautious about riding the Swamp Fox roller coaster. This roller coaster is seriously dangerous to anyone who has even the slightest back or neck problems. It is one of the roughest rides I have ever encountered. It can disable even a perfectly healthy person. I would highly recommend that this ride be reinspected by the city and shut down until it can be made safer. Perhaps thick padding can be put in the cars to soften the blows you are going to encounter against the hard wood. This roller coaster can ruin your day at a very fun amusement park. It's more fun to watch than to ride. Don't ride the Swamp Fox roller coaster if you want to stay healthy!

Has the feel of a local fair coming to town (with a couple small coasters). Was fine & if in town a week and 1 day wanted to get a wristband for all day rides might be with it. Is free to get in but individual games & rides cost. Not great but not bad. Was fun for burning off a couple hours.

"Good for Little One"

Reviewed July 13, 2018 NEW
Initially, I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay $30 because I didn't know if my child would be able to ride a lot of rides. It worked out very well. There are many rides for the little ones...not to mention they will probably want to ride certain rides more than once. She's 6 and was able to ride many of the rides without me which was great too. The only negative is the games are not included in the cost of the band. My child wanted to play games too, but after paying $30 for admission, I didn't want to spend a lot of extra on those games trying to get a "prize". I would bring her again. She had a great time!
