Two south central Pennsylvanian amusement parks placed in Amusement Today's "2021 Golden Ticket Awards".
The Amusement Today magazine started the Golden Ticket Awards in 1998, with this years awards being announced on Sept. 9, featuring 23 different categories and parks from across the planet.
Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster County won "Best Family Park of 2021." It won the same category in 2019, the last time rides were given awards.
“There’s such a feeling of charm and atmosphere at Dutch Wonderland,” said Tim Baldwin, Golden Ticket Awards Communications Coordinator, Amusement Today. “I had a lovely visit myself this year. It is no surprise that families have enjoyed the park for generations, and it has clearly resonated with the voters.”
Dutch Wonderland is open Saturdays and Sundays until Oct. 10 as well as Monday Oct. 11, then weekends Oct. 16 through Oct. 31.
