Hungry Adventureland guests will have some new options when it comes to food in 2022!

Adventureland in Altoona will officially open for the season on Saturday, May 14th, and it will be the first time visitors get a look at some of the changes that the new owners have made over the past several months. The park had been owned by the Krantz family since its opening in 1974, but it was sold to Palace Entertainment in late 2021. Guests may notice a few rides missing, as Falling Star, Lighthouse, and Lady Luck were all removed, but nine new rides will debut this summer, with a tenth set to be announced sometime this year. According to the Des Moines Register, the unannounced tenth ride will take the place of Falling Star.

In addition to the new rides, there will also be a few new foods available to try! Here are the four new menu items, courtesy of the Des Moines Register:

  • Loaded Mac & Cheese
    • Macaroni & cheese topped with BBQ pulled pork or brisket
    • Available at the BBQ stand near Lady Luck
  • Buffalo Cheese Curds
    • Fried cheese curds with Buffalo sauce baked in
    • Available at the Alpine Food Stand near the arcade
  • Spicy Chicken Sandwich
    • Available at Chicken Shack near the Monster
  • Beyond Chicken Tenders (Vegan/Vegetarian Option)
    • Available at Chicken Shack near the Monster

It's also worth noting that Adventureland is switching to a cashless system this year, so only debit and credit cards will be accepted. That means guests that bring cash will have to transfer it to a Visa Gift Card. There will be several places in the park that will allow guests to make the exchange.
