This is my favorite local amusement park while my children were under age 12. The rides are easy for kids, challenging for pre-teens. There are no lines - even on a very hot day - for the main park. There are lines for the water park, but we are more interested in the amusement park. You can easily go back and forth to your car - picnics are recommended. Best of all, if mom isn't going on rides, no cost just to follow your children around!
