An Iowa Tradition 50 Years Strong

Adventureland Resort has a rich history that traces its roots back to its opening in 1974. After discovering a giant fiberglass pig during a family road trip, Jack Krantz’s dream of having his kids sell concessions out of the roadside attraction grew into Iowa’s favorite family resort. Bringing first-of-a-kind rides to the Midwest like Lighthouse and Saw Mill Splash, along with beloved coasters and thrill rides, the park is now the home of Iowa’s best thrills! Adventureland has become a cherished part of Iowa's cultural landscape, creating lasting memories for generations of visitors.
