As an added bonus during spring break, March 11-15, Morgan’s Wonderland guests will enjoy special entertainment daily that’s free with park admission.
“We’re delighted to offer performances by magicians, musicians and other talented individuals during spring break,” said Ron Morander, Morgan’s Wonderland general manager. “This will be in addition to our more than 25 attractions including rides, playscapes and gardens.”
