DelGrosso’s Amusement Park – Tipton, PA

DelGrosso’s Amusement Park is located in Tipton, Pennsylvania. It’s not too far from the Raystown Lake region in Central Pennsylvania. It’s also close to Interstate 99, north of Altoona. The park typically opens in late May and closes around mid-September. Check the park’s website for their operating schedule.

There are two sides to the park: the water park and the dry rides.  The two sides of the park are across the street from each other, with a pedestrian bridge connecting them.

When arriving, the parking and main entrance is on the water park side.  In 2016, DelGrosso’s built a major addition to their water park.  It included a new main entrance to the park, as well as a lazy river and wave pool.

Previously, the water park consisted of only a shallow pool with a play structure, kiddie slides, and two water slide towers. The new water park is called Laguna Splash.

Individual ride tickets can be purchased for the dry rides side of DelGrosso’s Amusement Park, but all day fun passes that include the dry rides and the water park can also be purchased.  The all day pass is the only way to get access to the water park.

With the new addition in 2016, additional eateries were also added to the water park side.  There are plenty of choices for food on both sides of the park.

DelGrosso’s Amusement Park Rides

DelGrosso’s Amusement Park has a mix of kiddie rides, family rides, and a few thrill rides.  If the kids in your party are younger, the kiddie area may be a good place to start. There’s also rides for older children, such as the Tilt-a-Whirl, Paratrooper, Casino (roulette wheel), and YoYo (swings).  

The park has one large roller coaster, the Crazy Mouse.  The Crazy Mouse is a spinning Wild Mouse.  There’s also a mini-coaster called the Wacky Worm.

In the kiddie area, Kid’s Kingdom, there are cars, fire trucks, spinning dragons, a mini-carousel, boats, fish, and a small helicopter ride.

DelGrosso’s has a nice amount of rides that have a low (or no) height requirement, but the child must be walking.  This is perfect for adventurous children who are too short to meet the height requirements that a lot of other parks have for their kiddie rides. Find out more about DelGrosso’s ride height requirements on their website.

On the water park side, the wave pool had some serious waves (and life jackets for kids) and the lazy river is very interactive!  There’s also the older water slides on the other side of the water park, and the shallow water play structure with smaller slides.

Things to consider when visiting DelGrossos:

  1.  DelGrosso’s has concerts and events throughout the summer.  Check their event calendar to see if something that would interest your child will be there during your visit.  
  2. There are special days, mostly in September such as the car load sale and Harvest Fest.  Harvest Fest is very popular, and can get very crowded.
  3. Coupons for admission discounts are available on DelGrosso’s spaghetti containers.  You can even by their sauce in the park!
