    Zweefmolen - Dutch Chair Swing Ride.

    One of our most popular rides, it's sure to become one of your favorites, the chair swing ride is a carousel with suspended seats.

    Draaimolen - Carousel

    Everybody's favorite classic ride. Take a ride on a restored 1924 Herschell-Spillman carousel. Built by one of the biggest names in carousels, you and your family will be delighted by the intricately carved horses.

    Petal Pumper Cars

    When popular Chicago area KiddieLand closed we wanted to save one of its best Kiddie rides. The Petal Pumper cars have come to a new home here at Nelis' Dutch Village and children couldn't be happier. These self operated cars are very popular with little kids. Their faces beam as they take control and make their own car go round the track.

    Dutch Village Plasma Cars on KinderBaan

    KinderBaan - Plasma Cars

    Your kids will love racing Plasma Cars on our KinderBaan highway. These unique pedal-less vehicles harness the natural power of inertia, centrifugal force and friction. It's a great way for your kids to wiggle out some energy at Dutch Village.

    Harry's Windmill Ride

    We took one part Ferris Wheel and one part Dutch Windmill, joined them together to make our crowd pleasing new attraction that's drawing riders. Your family will love to experience "Harry's Windmill Ride." This is a blending of a restored 1940 Eli Bridge #5, 45ft high Ferris wheel and a reproduction of the de Grosmolen windmill in Hoogmade, Netherlands. The Ferris wheel looks like it's attached to the windmill and creates the illusion of "riding on the fins of an authentic Dutch windmill" for our happy riders. Come see it for yourself!
