Idlewild and SoakZone is set in Pennsylvania’s beautiful Laurel Highlands, just a few minutes from the town center of Ligonier. As the oldest consecutively running amusement park in Pennsylvania and one of the oldest amusement parks in the US, they have to be doing something right to have such a long tradition of family fun. In recent years, Idlewild even received the Golden Ticket Award for Best Children’s Park in the world several years in a row. (Which is amazing considering that it’s been around for over 140 years!)
On our recent trip to Ligonier from Pittsburgh, we got to spend the day at Idlewild and SoakZone with my 2 year old son and 4 year old niece. Although this charming amusement park is great for kids of all ages, its especially ideal for toddlers. Below are eight of our favorite reasons to visit Idlewild with a toddler.
