Jenkinson’s South Amusement Park offers a variety of rides for your family.
With several rides intended for small children, it’s a great place for a child’s first amusement park experience. At the southernmost end of our amusement park you will find our larger rides. Teenagers and kids at heart alike will be thrilled by rides like the Wave Swinger, Himalaya, and Moby Dick.
The Amusement Park will now be open daily 12pm-11pm, weather permitting. Starting Friday, July 10th, the Amusement Park will be open 2pm-10pm.
Due to increased cleaning & protocols, not all rides will be open and we will be open at a limited occupancy. (weather permitting)
We want to thank you once again for your patience during this time and we can’t wait to see you on the rides once again!
