Attractions
It might not look like much, but Dragon's Fury is one of the most fun coaster experiences anywhere. This custom Maurer Sohne with spinning cars provides a unique ride each time. If possible try to ride with only three people in your car. Vampire (suspended) was originally built by Arrow but modified by Vekoma with new trains. Runaway Train is a juiced-up powered coaster.

Recently added tree top ropes courses (one for kids and one for adults) have been well received. Most of the remaining rides are family friendly. Monkey Swinger is a Wave Swinger was a surprise twist. Tomb Blaster is a re-ridable shooting dark ride. Imperial Leather Bubble Works is a one-of-a-kind indoor raft ride. Hocus Pocus Hall is an interesting walkthrough with optical illlusions. The park also has a decent-size zoo at no additional cost.
Food
There is a Burger King in the park. Beyond that there are speciality restaurants offering, Chinese, Mexican, noodles, pizza, fish and chips, or fried chicken. The Greedy Goblin Inn is the largest eatery and offers BBQ, vegetarian, pasta, burgers, and children's meals.
