Idlewild & SoakZone Since 1878, Idlewild & SoakZone has been providing smiles, laughter, and memories longer than any other amusement park in Pennsylvania. Nestled within the foothills of the beautiful Laurel Highlands, Idlewild originally was a simple picnic ground along the Ligonier Valley Rail Road. Since that time, the park has grown into a sprawling entertainment center rich in tradition, nostalgia, and natural beauty. It’s unique charm and laid-back atmosphere invite you to relax. Shady trees, lakes, and the Loyalhanna Creek passing through its center, make Idlewild compare more to a state park than any other amusement park you’ve ever seen. The center midways are lined with benches and there are plenty of picnic groves where families can enjoy a picnic lunch together as they take a break during their fun-filled day. With one visit, it’s easy to figure out why the park has been ranked as “Best Kid’s Park” by Amusement Today Magazine and “Best Park for Families” by the National Amusement Park Historical Association.
