Looking for a fun rainy day activity? Visit Oaks Park Amusement Park!

Oaks Park currently offers indoor roller skating. They have a range of skating sessions available for the whole family. Preschool skating is for six and younger. During this time, an adult is free with a paying child. Adults can either wear their shoes or skates on the rink. Babies are also welcomed in a stroller, carrier, or walking on the rink. Classes for ages ten and younger are offered Saturday morning. During this time, standard rules apply. Skates are only allowed on the rink. Adult skate is provided for the 18 and older skaters on Tuesday nights. They have a DJ playing roller rink R&B music. Open skate is available six days a week for the general public. Skates range from toddler 7 to men's 17. Specialty skates are $4 for inline and $3 for artistic. You can also bring your skates, but they have to be approved by inspection. Tickets are limited and available 40 days in advance to purchase. Purchase these online for guaranteed admission. 

We recently went to preschool skating, which is Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. The kids got time to practice their skating before the class started. They offer a fifteen minute class where they teach them to hop, spin, march on their skates. After class, they offer milk and cookies for a snack. After that, kids can put on their shoes and run around the rink to have enough skate practice. One of my girls loved getting their energy out by running around chasing the lights from the disco ball. I appreciate that their baby sister was able to attend and walk around the rink. My girls loved when Chipper, the amusement park mascot, visited and did the chicken dance with them. 
 

More fun during Spring, Summer, and Fall

Spring, Summer, and Fall 2022 dates have not been announced yet for rides, midway games, and miniature golf. These are currently closed for the winter. 

We were able to join the fun rides and games last summer. Preschool time was great for six and younger. Toon cars, jump boats, up, up, and away, and frog hopper were a few of my kids' favorite rides. Unfortunately, during this time, the concession stands were not open.

We also went during general admission last summer with family that was visiting. My kids enjoyed going on rides with their cousins. Oaks Park had burgers, fries, and ice cream at a reasonable price and many places to sit. After many rides and a hot day, my kids enjoyed having an ice cream. I would recommend bringing a water bottle and having sunscreen on during the summer months.

Outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are welcomed at Oaks Park but not allowed on attractions, roller rinks, and mini-golf. They have many picnic areas or open grass areas to eat. 

Lockers are available to store backpacks, purses, or extra clothes. They are coin-operated located on the midway or roller rink for customers. 

Many restrooms are available around the park. Most have a place to change a baby.
