Arnolds Park Amusement Park

37 Lake Street, Arnolds Park, IA

Entertaining families for more than a century, Arnolds Park Amusement Park is an Iowa State icon.

Located on the waterfront in Arnolds Park, Iowa, the amusement park offers classic rides, attractions, and midway games for families — think Ferris wheel, carousel, tilt-a-whirl, log flume, mirror maze, and more. The amusement park offers something for all ages, with attractions for little kids, big kids, and families.

Arnolds Park Amusement Park also offers concerts and outdoor movies, and even houses a few museums. There are plenty of great eats onsite, too — don’t miss the Nutty Bar Stand or The Sugar Shack inside the Central Emporium!

And because Arnolds Park Amusement Park is located on the water, you can easily exit the park (just leave your bracelet on), cool off by the beach, and head back to the rides at any time.


Plenty of free parking is available in a lot next to the park.


Arnolds Park Amusement Park is open between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.
