The Del Grosso's Amusement Park includes more than 30 rides, an extensive water park, go-karts, a beautiful miniature golf course and food featuring Del Grosso's pasta sauces.
Our youngest guests are VIP’s at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park. More than a dozen rides designed for kids and enjoyed by generations of kids can be found at Kid’s Kingdom, adjacent to the Tyrone Hospital Infant Care Center.
Del Grosso's Park is a relatively small amusement and water park that has lots for kids of all ages to do. On one side of the road, the amusement park has a great kiddie area for the little ones up to about 42 inches in height. There are at least 7 rides I can think of, and probably more. These are kid's only rides, but parents can go in with the kids, get them safely in and out of their seats, and then watch from the outside of the ride. Kids from about age 2 up would have a great time in the boats, cars, fishes, etc. There are also a few carnival games here for little kids. Older kids and adults have a bunch of rides, too, in the rest of the park. There are no 'big' rides here, but plenty of good ones.
In the water park, there are two main areas -- one suitable for younger kids (not quite a kiddie pool, but shallow) that has fountains and such. This is a very big pool with multiples 'sides' around a large central fountain/running water feature so you will need to keep your littler ones close and watch them closely. Plenty of older kids, teens, and adults enjoy this pool, too, especially the inner area by the fountains and falling water features. There are a lot of beach chairs around the pool, as well as lots of umbrellas for shade. The other area has the huge water slides. These are very big, several stories high. You've got to be able to climb hundreds of stairs to get up there. Teens and adults love these.
There is also a racetrack that teens and older kids would enjoy.
I should mention the food! Del Grosso's is a great local italian sauce company that sells all forms of spaghetti sauces and such. So, along with the typical park fare like hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones, etc., they sell pizza that's very good and have a special dish each "Spaghetti Wednesday" in the summer spotlighting one of their sauces -- lasagna, gnocci, shells, spaghetti & meatballs, etc. The food is great! You can buy sauce to take home at the info center.
There are ride-all-day passes that are deals for the kids. It's a great family-oriented place to spend the day!
