Also see wooden shoe carving, interesting museum displays, 20 minute movies about the Netherlands, a Dutch farmhouse and barn, a Dutch swing ride and a restored 1924 carousel. New favorites include Old Dutch cheese making, Dutch cheese tasting, Delft making demonstration.

Children delight in meeting our friendly farm animals including goats, rabbits, and chickens. Our rides include a giant wooden shoe slide, a restored antique carousel, and the "big swing" - our popular Zweefmolen (Dutch Swing Ride). Added in 2013 was Kinderspel Gebiet, a fun area with a Wooden Shoe Mini Zip Line, a Gouda Cheese Maze, and a Windmill Water Pump Race. For 2014 we have a special new ride "Harry's Windmill Ride” a 45’ tall Ferris Wheel that looks like a windmill.
