Enchanted Island Amusement Park in Phoenix, is an amusement park made specifically for young children aged 18 months to 8 years old! My kids loved Enchanted Island, probably because it’s one of the few places that a two and four-year-old can ride all the rides!
Enchanted Island offers nine total attractions ranging from a carousel, kiddie roller coaster, airplane ride, water bumper cars, helicopter + airplane attractions, rock climbing, and a seven-minute scenic train ride around the 222-acre park that Enchanted Island Amusement Park is located in.
That’s right: Enchanted Island sits in the center of Encanto Park, and Encanto Park was rated one of the Top 12 Best City Parks in America! Encanto Park’s 222 acres features not only an amusement park but several picnic areas, a nature trail, 2 golf courses, a pond, and a lagoon that you can fish in. Encanto Park also offers pedal boat and canoe rentals! Pedal boat and canoe ride rentals are purchased at the Enchanted Island box office.
Entry to Encanto Park and Enchanted Island Amusement Park is Free. The amusement park charges per ride or offers all-day ride passes. Encanto Park and Enchanted Island have so much to offer! You could spend all day there for a reasonable price, but we warn that your kids will ask you to go back over and over and over again!
There is also the Pogo Pass, which has entry to Enchanted Island and other local attractions for one low price, and you have a year to visit all the places you love. Learn more here, and use code PHOENIXWITHKIDS to save $10!
In the summer season (April 15-October 5th) the water bumper car attraction turns into a small splash pad area!
Covid Enforcements (as of December 2020): The ride attendants spray down all the rides after every ride & they ask that children do their best at wearing masks.

Tips: My recommendation for purchasing tickets is to purchase a whole day pass for the kids. That is the best “bang for your buck” if you plan to be there for two or more hours. The rides are generally pretty short, and while all the rides will keep your kids happy and entertained, they’ll want to ride them more than once!
Adults need tickets to ride a few of the rides. Example: Train, parachute tower, and rock climbing. So, I recommend buying individual tickets for adults depending on which rides the adults would like to participate in.
We loved Enchanted Island located in Encanto Park and we know you will too!
