Current roller coasters
Dutch Wonderland has two operating rollercoasters.

Kingdom Coaster - Built in 1992

A wooden rollercoaster, the first coaster ever built by Custom Coasters International. Uses a single Philadelphia Toboggan Company train with buzz bars. The park's monorail runs through the structure of the ride. The ride was once painted white, and is currently painted blue. It was named the Sky Princess until the 2007 season.

Joust - Built in 1998

A steel "Big Dipper" style rollercoaster, manufactured by Chance Rides. Sits where the Flying Carousel once stood, in front of the Kingdom Coaster. Rumored to be Chance's prototype.
