Lubbock's Joyland

The amusement park is for children - not recommended for senior citizens - The food is a little pricy - You could spend 2 to 4 hours or more.

From arrival to closing, Joyland offered family fun all day! My family rode the bumper cars 8 times! My son rode every kiddie ride including the tiny coaster! My granddaughter, the daredevil, loved every ride! The friendly staff understood my son's special needs as well and were very courteous and respectful. Each ride driver made sure the rides were least... More

I hadn't been here in ages until I took my nieces and step sons. Everything is the same as far as the rides being similar to those in a carnival. You have the lift ride that takes you all around the park and the small kiddie rides for the little ones that aren't tall enough to ride the bigger rides.... More

It was exactly as I expected and wasn't crowded at all for a Saturday; but maybe later at night it gets busier. A solid 3 hours of fun. I like the fact that you don't have to pay a huge amount if you're not going to ride the rides ($5.50). All the staff were nice and even got my kid's... More

Man it was hot!! But with the misters around the park and water rides we cooled off real quick. No Disneyland for sure but kids kept saying they liked it just as much as wonderland park. No regrets we will be back very soon!!
