Magicland, formerly known as Wonderland, is the largest amusement park in Nigeria. It's very popular with kids and the larger Abuja 'populace'. Magicland is fondly referred to as Nigeria's Disney Land! 😄 How apt, considering that entertainment complexes as sprawling as Magicland are few and far between in Nigeria. Magicland is located close to the National Stadium and the Abuja City Gate, on Constitution Avenue, so it's unmissable when you're driving in from the airport.

Entry in to Magicland is free, which is awesome. This means that you purchase individual tickets based on the price for each ride. All tickets are nonrefundable. They have 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 Naira tickets that come in the form of tiny stubs; (refer to a sample picture of one). Ride prices are very reasonable, with the cheapest ride costing 600 Naira (about 80 U.S Cents or 74 Euro Cents), and the most expensive at 1,500 Naira (about 2 U.S Dollars and 1.86 Euro Cents). This makes Magicland a very affordable park. It's worth mentioning that Magicland has a breathtakingly beautiful background in the form of a huge mountain-like rock. Refer to some pictures I posted. It forms an absolutely gorgeous backdrop to Magicland Amusement Park! ⛰️😍

Magicland has about 24 Rides, (listed from cheapest to priciest). They are: COW BOY, FROG JUMP, MINI WHEEL, HAPPY WORM, CAPSULE, FIRE FIGHTER, JUNGLE TRUCK, ROCK CLIMBING, BOAT RIDE, BOUNCING CASTLE, AEROPLANE, CAROUSEL, CRAZY CLOWN, FLYING BICYCLE, BIG WORM, WONDER WHEEL, ROLLER COASTER, BUMPER CAR, FLYING TOWER, SUPERSPIN, PIRATE SHIP, DISCO, WATERSPLASH and PENDULUM. My kids went on just about every ride and loved all of them.

There's an indoor FUN ARCADE with lots of colourful, fun car/motorcycle gaming machines. Was disappointed that their Mechanical Bull wasn't working. My kids really wanted to ride that. It cost 200 Naira per coin to play on the rides at the Fun Arcade. Most of them needed more than one coin per round; still very reasonable. There was JUNGLE LAND- a gym, soft-play type enclosure for younger kids. The park's toilets were located inside Fun City Arcade and they were well kept.

Magicland's food options were a big letdown. It was mostly African Dishes available, with not much to appeal to kid's palates. Stuff like Burgers, Pizza, Hotdogs, Slush and so on were no where to be found. For the Snacks, it was also a very boring selection, (refer to my posted pics). At least they had Popcorn and Cotton Candy. I saw a place called Arewa Suya outside, as well as a Shawarma & Ice Cream by the gate/main entrance, but don't know if they are operational. Suya- (for those that don't know), is traditional Nigerian spiced and smoked meat on skewers. It's a classic Nigerian delicacy and comfortable street food.

I also noticed a Gift Shop called DE PARTY SHOP and another Bazaar like booth selling traditional and western clothing. Though I think Magicland is an awesome entertainment facility, some major criticisms I have are that most of the rides seem really cranky, old and rickety. Some rides looked like they hadn't been working for ages. Though there was a sizeable crowd when we where there, Magicland seemed a bit lifeless to tell you the truth. There just wasn't that 'thrilling, energectic and exciting' vibe you get when you're at an amusement park. You know the feeling I mean right?

One of my daughters said that the place was 'a bit dead'. 😄 There weren't any colorful parades, any vibrant shows, any mascots strolling around or any upbeat music playing. They should endeavour to improve that part by introducing some type of attention grabbing entertainment, even if it's for a couple of hours over the course of the day. They also need to build more eateries and food outlets because for a park this expansive, there choices are rather limited. Would have looked to have seen Popcorn, Ice Cream, Candy Floss and Snack stalls littered all over the park.. Magicland definitely needs a face lift or a refurbishment or an upgrade. Everything looked worn, tired, faded and somewhat neglected.

All in all, we had a really fun, 'magical' day at Magicland with family, and some of my household staff. There were 11 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our day here with lots of laughs, joy and funny moments. I really appreciate that they've kept their prices low! 🙏🏼 This is a park I can see myself returning to, time and time again- with my kids, or without them. You can just lazily stroll along the winding lanes, 'perceive' the attractive and well manicured environs and just converse with a friend or family member. I wish there were more places like this in Nigeria, but unfortunately, there aren't, so for us- Magicland has to do! Great place for kid's entertainment! Fun, Fun and more Fun awaits you @ Magicland, so COME ONE...COME ALL!!! 🤩 Highly, highly, highly recommended 👌🏽👍🏽👏🏼

The positives:
Magic land does closely what it says on the tin, environment is clean and beverage and light meal prices are reasonable. The available amusement equipments are humble for fun. I loved the scary water splash and Vikings boat.

The negatives:
The people selling tickets have NO or very little product knowledge and come across as disinterested and poorly trained.
They rarely smile and sat unenchanted in their boots and make no effort to sell you the amusement.

They could be trained to do better as they're the face of the park.

Overall experience:
Very good all the same and, I will come back.

It was a good experience for myself and family. The park contains the basic recreation equipment that works, environment was clean. It seems like the best amusement park in Wuse if not in whole of FCT.

I was on a business trip to Abuja and after all the monotonous meetings and dinners, decided to take a break on a Sunday. Headed alone to Magicland which I had seen on my way to the city from the airport.

Was extremely rejuvenating...reliving those childish days!
This park has very humble infrastructure compared to the amusement options around the globe, but still serves the purpose.

Such value for money!

A must visit for Adventurers when in Abuja. Especially with family and friends. It may lack the splendor and grandeur of Disney Land and Insane Coaster rides, but one thing is guaranteed - you get the thrills... With over 9 different kinds of out door rides. You have everything you need to get the chills. If you like to just submerge in nature in your little corner sipping coffee and and working from your laptop - there is abundance of nature and space. I do not know if mountain climbing is allowed, if it is you're in luck as you can come with your gears to scale the giant rock. Food, Drinks, Meat, Cotton Candy, ice Cream and more are available so you don't get hungry... This place is worth your time and costs next to nothing. You'll thank me you visited.

My husband took me and my sister in law to this amusement park and I love it. Tho I was afraid to ride because of my fear of height but above all the place is good for kids activities.

The price is reasonable and it’s a good place for kids birthday party etc.

Came here with my niece and nephew. The park is moderately priced and it provides a number of rides for kids of different ages. The location of the park with one of the many Abuja rocks partially being better of the park creates an additional charm.

The ferris-wheel would most likely provide a good view of Abuja but so would placing a lookout point on the rock next to the park.

It could also do with a little bit of renovation ie touching up the paint on the rides and signs.

We sighted some carmels whilst leaving... So in general good fun for little kids and their parents
