Family Fun at Delgrosso’s Amusement Park

If you are planning a trip to Altoona, Pennsylvania, you have got to visit Delgrosso’s Amusement Park in Tipton, Pennsylvania. This family-friendly amusement park features 30 exciting rides and attractions including, a Kid’s Kingdom and a Laguna Splash water-park.

Visiting Delgrosso’s Amusement Park

Located just a short drive from Altoona, Pennsylvania, Delgrosso’s Amusement Park is one of two amusement parks in Blair County, Pennsylvania. If you’re are spending a short weekend in Altoona or driving through to State College, find out why you’re going to want to plan a visit and stick around for some tips to make your visit even easier.

Family Fun for All Ages

Growing up, I was the youngest child, so when we would go to amusement parks, I often had to sit out on the side because I was too small. At Delgrosso’s Amusement Park, the whole family can have fun no matter how big or small they are. In fact, the park uses a very kid-friendly, fun tomato growth chart to help determine what rides your kid can go on.

From a seedling to a tomato champ, kids of all ages and heights can have fun at Delgrosso’s Amusement Park.

Family Roots Run Deep

At Delgrosso’s Amusement Park, it’s not uncommon to see the Delgrosso Family working the booths or maintaining the park. That’s because unlike other corporate ran amusement parks, Delgrosso’s is a family-owned park with deep roots in the Blair County area.

The Pride and Joy of the Park

At Delgrosso’s Amusement Park there are many fun and exciting rides, but none of them stand out like the park’s true beauty, the antique carousel.

With 36 hand-carved carousel horses, the ride is considered a true antique and it is a beauty. And did I mention, each carousel horse’s tail is made of real horse hair?

First Impressions Mean Everything

At Delgrosso’s Amusement Park first impressions mean everything; the park prides itself on cleanliness and it shows. Unlike other amusement parks that have dirty toilets and no changing areas for babies, Delgrosso’s staff work hard to make sure your visit is as perfect as it should be.

The park’s amazing upkeep has been the topic of many TripAdvisor reviews which almost all of them make some mention of the park’s cleanliness.

The Park’s Rides

When you walk into Delgrosso’s, you will actually be coming in on the waterside part of the park called, Laguna Splash. Since the waterpark closes earlier than the rest of the park, most people prefer laying out at the lazy river or catching waves in the wave pool before going over to the ride part of the park.

On the day we visited the park, we took full advantage of short lines and all the rides we could inside the amusement park.

Kid’s Kingdom

The first set of amusement rides inside of the park are the kiddie rides at Kid’s Kingdom. This is the part of the park that is all about the kiddos. Most of the rides here are to be ridden strictly by children under 48 inches tall who are not tall enough to ride most of the adult rides in the park.

Kid's Kingdom at Delgrosso's Amusement Park

We spent most of our time at Delgrosso’s at the Kid’s Kingdom because my children were still a little too timid for some of the other rides.

The rides at Kid’s Kingdom are perfect for getting your little seedling ready to for bigger rides. The rides here were so plentiful that it took them a while to finish them all.

Family Rides

I love family rides because it gives us a chance to ride together. Delgrosso’s Amusement Park offers 8-family rides. Most of these rides are for any height, although some do have certain height requirements. These rides range in variety to your most common carnival rides and each one is just as exciting as the last.

One of our favorite rides we rode was the Tilt-A-Whirl which we got to ride on as a family.

Thrill Rides

Delgrosso’s doesn’t have any major roller coasters, but they do offer 3 thrill rides including a Crazy Mouse, Rock Star, and their most thrilling ride, the X-Screaming Tower. While I choose not to ride any of the thrill rides, these rides looked pretty daunting and enjoyable for any thrill-seeker.

No Trip to the Park is Complete Without Food

If you’ve been wondering why the name Delgrosso sounds familiar, you’re not going crazy, it really is a familiar name. The Delgrosso family is also creators of the famous Delgrosso’s spaghetti and pizza sauce! Inside the park, be sure to try some of the park’s delicious pizza, spaghetti, and their secret potato salad recipe – you will be glad you did!


  • Guest are inside of the park without an admission bracelet, but you will need a bracelet to get into the water park.
  • The park has picnic tables, but don’t plan on packing, the park’s food is very affordable.
  • Delgrosso’s is a pay-per-ride park meaning the guest can buy tickets instead of an admission pass (for the ride park only)
  • Guest can eat at most of the restaurants in the park without an admissions ticket.
  • Getting your kids measured will save you time from standing in lines if you’re not sure your child is tall enough.

Our family had so much fun at Delgrosso’s Amusement Park and I am sure your family will too! Be sure to follow Delgrosso’s on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on any all up-coming events.

Delgrosso’s Amusement Park truly does look like it is perfect for the whole family. It’s no fun when there are not activities available for everyone’s age level! The antique carousel is so beautiful, I see why it is the pride of the park!

Amusement park look like a great place! I like the park rides, missing my childhood memories..:)

Mentioning that the food is very affordable is so great because, in my opinion, it is the refreshments that drive up the costs of family trips. Looks like a charming place and love the fact that the water park is separate.

Muna Kenny July 21, 2017 - 11:15 am

This place looks so much fun and you guys seem to have enjoyed your time there. I usually pack snacks and food when going to the park, but I’m glad to know that food there is decent and affordable.
