We travel every summer with a number of other families to Darien. We stay in the Pioneer trailers and they are fine. Not the nicest trailers but for what we need they are fine. The park itself is great during the midweek was there are very few lines for most rides (except at the water park).

I love Darien Lake, It's been a tradition for years. We always want to come back for more. The lines are short, rides are always running, staff is friendly, water park is amazing. Also the camping area is so much fun. We have also stayed in the lodge and were very impressed. Hopefully planning a trip there Victoria Weekend this... More

It's a great place for when it's not raining. Rented a trailer on site and it leaked thru out. Maintenance crew tried to fix, and did so until a huge rain storm came and it proceeded to leak again. Other then that, its truly is a place for young and old. We have a 5 yo and two teens.

We love Darien Lake, our favorite roller coaster was the ride of steel. The water park is better than the dry park.

Lots of rides for kids of all ages. Best value was kids 36" and over. U will have a great time if u don't it's your... More

This was an awesome place to go. The amusement rides were fun, the concert was one of the best I have ever been to & Beaver Brother's restaurant had a great breakfast buffet & many different selections for the dinner menu.

For a "reasonable" cost, this is a good fun family day. If you live in the area, the season pass is definitely the way to go, as it pays for itself in the second visit.

My family and I visit almost every year and have been going since my wife and I were kids. It's always a good time. Great concert venue. Lots of rides and games for the kids. Lots of different lodging options. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Very clean grounds, bathrooms are clean. Unbelievable amount of shower offered to guests. There were enough that we never ran into line ups. Wasn't overly pleased with the food. One recommendation: Darien Lake offers golf cart rentals @ $75.00/day, unfortunately there is a 2 day minimum. I wish they offered daily rates without a minimum.

Stayed several times in a rented Executive RV - worth the price. The proximity to the park entrance is a welcome bonus. The park has the standard old-timey-type rides that all are in need of some serious cosmetic refreshing. Given the aesthetics, one must question if safety and maintenance is a priority if the outer looks aren't cared for. The... More
