Packing it all in with two fun parks in one

Amusement parks don’t get better than this - with a water park thrown in! Funtown Splashtown USA is where you go in Maine to double your fun. Before you cool off in the water rides, you can work up a sweat on other thrilling activities, such as plunging down Dragon’s Descent. You have your choice of the state’s only wooden roller coaster, Excalibur, for rattlin’ good fun, or their solid steel coaster, the Wild Mouse, for a faster and "swoopier" time of your life. To enjoy zipping around while cooling down, try New England’s tallest and longest log flume ride, Thunder Falls. With 50 rides and slides, pools and plummets, you won’t likely run out of fun at Funtown Splashtown USA.

Enjoy old-fashioned amusement park fun at York's Wild Kingdom

York's Wild Kingdom includes an old-fashioned beach amusement park geared for smaller children, with more than 20 rides to entertain you! Remember the fun you once had on the merry-go-round, the glass house, the super slide, the wacky mouse, and the ferris wheel? Now you can watch your kids enjoy the same thrills, or on many rides climb aboard yourself and join them. Bring a lunch for a picnic in our park, or grab refreshments at our snack bars. Enjoy the best fried dough on Maine's seacoast. We've also got an 18-hole mini-golf course, batting cages, go-karts, midway games, and an arcade. Visit our zoo, too. It's home to lions, tigers, monkeys, mandrills, and fluttering creatures in our Butterfly Kingdom.
