Centreville Amusement Park
If you don't want to go to Wonderland because the rides are too scary for your young ones - or the tickets too costly - then the Centreville Amusement Park is the perfect place to visit.
The amusement park is a place for younger children, aged approximately 3 - 7.
There are many rides: a horse carousel, a small ferry's wheel, a mini train that goes all the way around the park (and through a tunnel!), a swan ride, minigolf, pony express and many more. The newest addition is a small roller coaster that even young kids can enjoy.
Not all kids are allowed on every ride: some have height restrictions, but the restrictions make good sense. Also, parents need to go with kids on certain rides. Parents also need tickets.
As with every popular attraction, the best time to visit are the shoulder seasons or weekdays. Standing in long lineups for rides and food on a weekend isn't that much fun.
Centreville tickets are $25 for 25 tickets. Note that one ride does not equal one ticket. Rides require 2, 3, 4 or 6 tickets! Day passes are $37 for over 4' tall and $26 under 4' tall. A small discount applies if you buy tickets online and the online pickup line is generally shorter. Your best option in the summer is to take the 10am ferry to get you to Centreville by the 10:30am opening time. That way you'll get many rides in before the crowd arrives.
Note that all day passes are not valid for the mini putting course. You aren't missing much though: the mini putting course is the most unimaginitive course that should have been renovated ten years ago.
Far enough farm
The far enough farm is a small zoo adjacent to the amusement park. You can visit the zoo for free.
