The passengers were really nice today. A lot of them were getting on thanking us for working today. We had one girl give us each a piece of candy. Another family got on and gave us a card along with some homemade cookies. I've put a picture of the card on here. She was really nice and the cookies were good too!
... back up for taxi at 5am. Adam from HC (project manager) flew in from NZ and we had 3 nights in Iowa to meet and understand Proliant better. Wow the US is vast, Iowa very agricultural based, cropping as far as the eye can see. The 1 hour flight from Chicago you got to understand how large the country is, flew across the mighty Mississippi and not a lot in between. Had a pizza one night in Des Moines at Fongs (pretty ...
Tonight marks the third game of ten this IA Wild hockey season. We head over for our standard tailgate but today we are joined by our friends and their two kids. Their first Wild hockey game and boy are they excited.
We donated some hats, gloves and scarves to the 'mission' of the night and we receive 4 tickets to next Wednesday's game for free! Nice!
We sure do enjoy our seats. Yes, they are up top in the last row but ...

... The battle wasn't going too well, so the Danish bishop raised his hands in prayer, and down came the flag. This so reinvigorated the Danes, that they won the battle. All according to legend... Anyway, the Danish flag (a white cross on a red background) is the oldest national flag in the world. Dannebrog was a nice little town with 350 inhabitants, down from 450 in its heyday.

Historical Traveler Reviews Adventureland Inn Altoona
Ripped of in Des Moines
I set up a family get together for Christmas. WE do this every year and never have we had this problem I asked when calling if they had breakfast buffet and was told a price. After the meal we were told a way out of line price. Never have we ever payed 10.95 for a egg breakfast. The rooms were so Hot that I had to open the door to our room to get cooled of during the night. Other guest said the same thing. The food prices are completedly out of line.
We have a large family gathering at a hotel each year. First and last time we use Adventureland Inn. We have never been to a hotel before that doesn't allow you to bring in any outside food or drink poolside, claimed it was a law since they sell food at the pool. Their prices were ridiculous. Never mentioned when booking rooms and not in any advertising. Eventually provided a meeting room briefly so the large group could gather. Poor customer service and the guy dressed as a referee casing the pools was over the top rude. The pools are nice but not worth it for the hassle or money.
Same story as some of the other reviews. We reserved a poolside suite a month in advance and showed up at 3:00pm check in time. We got neither a suite nor a poolside room. Our room overlooked the restaraunt and we had to pay $30 more than a second floor room overlooking the pool.
Best trip with a 3,1 and 4month old!
We had the best time ever! Our three year old and one year old had a grand time! We were there from the time they opened till closing, and never had a tantrum! They just kept going like the energizer bunny. I just loved how clean it was and the rides were just long enough to give them a thrill. Other places the rides are tooooo short! This place was the best! We will be back. If your wondering; are we goin to have fun the answer is YES!!!!!! YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!!
I took my grandchildren for a night at the adventureland inn. We enjoyed the room and the area. This trip was taken in March 2003. The water in the play area was too cold. The little ones had blue lips from being cold.
The only nice thing about our stay were the pools. They were the perfect temperature. Hot tubs were too warm though. The rooms were a different story though, they were absolutely filthy. When I say filthy thats exactley what I mean. The bathrooms had mold growing in the grout on the bathroom walls. The shower heads leaked so bad the it was almost impossible to get water to come out of the shower head. The floors in the bathroom had so much crud in them that it was utterley disgusting.
I just came back from THE worst hotel stay I ever had. We checked into our room at 3pm on the hottest day of the summer (99 degrees). When we entered the room, it was like a sauna. The thermostat read 88 degrees and the air conditioner did not work. I phoned the front desk and was told to turn the air conditioner down and wait a while. (I actually did that before I called the desk). We decided to go to the pool to cool off. Even that did not work, the water felt like a very warm bathtub.
Swim Up Bar...!
Adventureland Inn has really made some wonderful additions to an already great hotel. We have been staying there for the past few years, and this trip was even more fun. The new water slide they put in is great for kids of all ages. Having a little one, it makes things tough to keep them happy, but Adventureland thought of that already. They have a children's pool that is very shallow with fun water toys to keep them entertained. I especially liked the swim up bar in the pool, they say it's the only one in Iowa. Thanks Adventureland Inn, we'll see you back here next year!

My family and I have never had a better stay than what we experienced Adventureland Inn. We once lived in Iowa and now we reside in San Diego, California. Every year our family visits relatives in Iowa with a guaranteed family trip to Advnetureland Park. We have been staying at Adventureland Inn for the past 3 years, but this last trip was quite extraordinary! During our last stay we encountered tremendous service. The front desk clerks who checked us in were very friendly and offered to have a bellman take our stacks of luggage to our room. The pool areas were kept clean and were fun for the whole family. I even went down the new waterslide myself (the kids made it look like so much fun)! After a long day at the amusement park it was nice to ride back to the Inn on Molly the Trolley and know that what ever we needed would be taken care of. Thank you to the new management of Adventureland Inn. We had a great time. Watch out Disneyland…here comes Adventureland Inn. ---Former Iowan
Summer of 2002! Our family decided to have a reunion within easy driving and flying from across the country. We decided on Adventureland and Adventureland Hotel as our location. We made reservations for 'pool side' rooms and looked forward to our visit. Imagine when we got there--5 rooms--20 people--and our reservation requests were not honored. We had rooms as far as possible from the pool. The young staff on duty at the desk attitude was 'too bad for you' 'you got to understand we do make mistakes' etc. The manager's response--'we will refund your money so you can go to a different hotel. We decided to stay snce everyone was tired and checked in. During the first night we had some type of flying insects that were attracted to the outside lights invade our rooms! Good location--terrible customer service. If you can't get a pool side room stay at another nearby hotel and save some money and no bugs in the room.
