Foursquare Tips

  • An Iowa icon. Be sure to hit up the roller coaster! While you're at it, make sure that no jack-wad flips off the camera.
  • The Legend roller coaster was designed by John A. Miller, called the Thomas Edison of the roller coaster for over 100 patents and 140 coasters he created. This is one of the few surviving.
  • Get the all day wrist band for the kids. Find a shady bench and let the kids have a ball.
  • Wooden roller coaster awesome.
  • The Rock-O-Plane or upside-down-Ferris wheel is one of my favorite rides of any theme park! Try to rock your way into continuous spin mode, I dont recommend keeping change in your pockets on this.
  • Always fun in the summer!
  • Great place to play the musical instruments and a great place to sit on the Questers park bench. We had great bacon with nuts on it.
  • Small but very fun amusement park w/ classic wooden coaster on a beautiful lake. Some other classic & rare flat rides too (rock-o-plane, roll-o-plane, madhouse, tilted walk through), & much more.
  • Locals can purchase family passes that are good all season. Great deal if you have children. AND, if you visit on the 4thh of July, the whole family will enjoy fireworks over the lake!
  • Making new memories with my kids...
  • Not much fun if you're above the age of 10.
  • This place is over priced, have rude employees, is poorly run, and just plain ridiculous. Really disappointed!
  • For roller coaster enthusiasts riding The Legend is a must. It's the 13th oldest running roller coaster in the U.S. making its debut in 1927.
  • Some rides have height restrictions.
  • Maxwell's Beach Cafe, Casually elegant dining featuring steaks, seafood, pasta and many gourmet dishes; full bar, wine and beer; heated patio
