About Idlewild & SoakZone

Looking for your ticket to family fun? 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.

Experience 7 Theme Areas of Family Fun!

Your family will love the trolley ride through the Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and meeting Daniel and all his friends! A stroll through Story Book Forest features a winding path through a real forest with character scenes from fairy tales and nursery rhymes - providing a great chance for parents and grandparents to revisit their youth as they introduce their own little ones to Mother Goose, Goldilocks, and many more. In the main amusement section, Olde Idlewild, you won't find mega-thrill attractions, but instead classic rides that the entire family can enjoy together. Then, venture through one of the largest and most scenic children's areas in the country, Raccoon Lagoon. Let the good times roll…jump, climb and slide in Jumpin’ Jungle- a wild, fun and exciting super play area designed for kids of all ages! Our town of yesteryear, Hootin' Holler, boasts unique shops and the best eatin’ this side of the Mississippi! And, it’s liquid to the limits in SoakZone with our beautiful wavepool, lazy river, over a dozen waterslides, Captain Kidd's Adventure Galley, and Little Squirts water play areas. With 17 major rides, 13 kiddie rides, a large water park, family shows, and character meets, Idlewild & SoakZone strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern-day amusement.
