Thrill Rides:

"Looking for an adrenaline rush? Give our 12 world-class roller coasters a try! Our collection of roller coasters features one of the tallest, fastest coasters on the east coast, Intimidator 305, which takes you up 305 feet and sends you plummeting at an angle of 80 degrees at 90 mph. Looking for less aggressive thrills? Our Family coasters are sure to delight even the smallest coaster lovers. Children can take their first coaster rides on the Great Pumpkin Coaster or Woodstock’s Express before making their way up to the bigger rides."

Just for Kids:

"Our 14-acre children’s area, Planet Snoopy, features 20 rides designed to be enjoyed by families, numerous kids activities, live entertainment and more. In 2017, 3 new kiddie rides were introduced: Kids can take a lap on the PEANUTS 500, bounce up and catch Charlie Brown’s kite in the Kite Eating Tree, or take flight on Sally’s Sea Plane. Experience their first coaster rides on the Great Pumpkin Coaster and make your way up to Woodstock Express. They’ll get their driver’s license early with practice at Joe Cool’s Driving School, PEANUTS Turnpike and PEANUTS Road Rally. Then, take a break from the rides and visit with Snoopy and the rest of the PEANUTS gang."


"When you need a break from the rides, head to one of our show venues and catch some of our world-class live entertainment. The PEANUTS gang puts on a great show at the PEANUTS Playhouse in Planet Snoopy. Be on the lookout for the PEANUTS Party People and participate in their fun family activities. The Clown Band is always roaming around with their shenanigans – throw on your dancing shoes as they get down to their high energy music."
