Nestled in the foothills of the Laurel Highlands, just outside of Ligonier, Idlewild & SoakZone is your ticket to family FUN!  The park offers 7 unique theme areas. 

OLDE IDLEWILD classic amusement area has a collection of 14 major rides.  The park’s famous Rollo Coaster, built in 1938, is a long-time family favorite, with just as many moms, dads and grandparents in line with kids as there are teenagers.  Other favorites include the beautifully hand-carved 1930 Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel, and the more adventurous Wild Mouse steel coaster, towering high among the park’s tall evergreens. The park’s nostalgic midways contain plenty of games, merchandise shops, and food concessions.
