Dutch Wonderland

Dutch Wonderland is an ‘only in America’ kind of place. For one thing, the Dutch in Dutch Country (from which the Wonderland takes its name) never were Dutch. They were Deutch, German. This may be why Dutch Wonderland is fronted by a turreted castle. It doesn’t explain the purple dragon, though.

Dutch Wonderland is in the heart of Amish county (you know, those folks who reject all things modern, like electricity, and who work hard to carve out a subsistence living). How odd must we look from their passing horse-drawn wagons, lining up, half-naked, to fling ourselves down water slides?
