Dutch Wonderland's story began with Earl Clark, a local potato broker and hotel owner who saw the need for an attraction in the Lancaster area that would appeal to children. After almost nine months of construction, Clark officially opened Dutch Wonderland to the public on May 20, 1963. Like most parks, Dutch Wonderland started out small, but it soon became one of the biggest attractions in the area. Many groundbreaking changes were made to the park throughout its first years of operation, including the addition of a monorail, the International Botanical Gardens, and a wax museum based on the history of the Lancaster area. The 1990s saw the addition of two roller coasters: the Sky Princess and the Joust. For over 50 years, Dutch Wonderland has prided itself as one of the best family parks in the country. Dutch Wonderland will take readers down memory lane, telling the story of the park through images from its colorful history.

In various ways American culture has permeated Dutch society in the 20th century, especially in the post-World War II era. This volume provides an overview of that process. It focuses on what is presented in some historical accounts as the triumphal procession of a culture thought to be the wave of the future, in an environment eager to try new things and to abandon what was regarded as old or old-fashioned. American Culture in the Netherlands investigates how various manifestations of American culture were diffused, mediated and received in the Netherlands, and which groups took a negative, positive, neutral or ambivalent stance towards these cultural forms, for what reasons and due to what causes. Attempts are made to explore the roots of the rise, prosperity and decline of expressions of American culture in Dutch society. This book includes articles on American influences in leisure, with special emphasis on jazz and pop music; the cultural critique of American movies by leading Dutch intellectuals in the 1920s and 1930s; the American cultural impact on Dutch higher education and literature; images of America as presented and represented in Dutch tourism to the United States, in popular Dutch magazines and comics, and as communicated to the Dutch in the foreign cultural policy programmes of the American government. In brief, this study introduces and explains a great many findings on the complexities of Americanization in a small culture such as that of the Netherlands.
