As a bonus during Spring Break 2017, Morgan’s Wonderland will treat guests to “Music, Mutts, Magic and More,” special entertainment that’s free with park admission March 13-18.

This will include musical performances, exhibitions by acrobatic dogs, feats of magic and appearances by butterfly costumed-character Joy, the theme park’s mascot, and members of The Wonder Squad, Morgan’s Wonderland super heroes who will greet guests and pose for photos.

“We’re delighted to offer special spring break entertainment in addition to our more than 25 attractions such as rides, playgrounds and other fun elements,” said General Manager Ron Morander. “This includes our latest addition, our colorful, five-and-a-half-story-high Ferris wheel, Whirling Wonder.”

Actually, the 25-acre, wheelchair-accessible park – designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built to be enjoyed by everyone – will be open daily March 10-19. The latest information on operating days and hours of operation, admissions and special activities can be found at www.MorgansWonderland.com.

Among the special entertainment available during Spring Break will be “The Magic of Friendship,” a 20-minute interactive variety show in which guests will learn the art of making friends and all about inclusion through the power of magic.
