Visitors can take nostalgic rides on the miniature train and enjoy the antique carousel. Two separate launches; one with a four-lane concrete ramp, loading piers, and parking for 20 rigs and the other launch with two concrete ramps, loading piers, and large black and top parking. 

The park glows with thousands of holiday lights and animated displays including holiday music each December.
