We went to see the harness racing and were very disappointed that the only indoor seating to view the whole track was from the restaurant which was booked solid. Instead we had to stay in a crowded area either watching the races on TV screens or standing outside in the grand stand in the cold and rain.

If you're thinking of going out for a night at the races be prepared to be bored waiting for the next race to start. Post time has no credibility. You will constantly sit and twirl your thumbs waiting for the race to start. Usually you can count on an extra 5 minutes or more listening to reminders that post time... More

People are getting more and more upset at the progressively awful payouts at the slots. I have heard many, many complaints.

The best thing I can say about this place is that there is free pop, free parking and it is smoke-free. Imposssible to get around if someone is mobility impaired.

I have been here for many events. A short list is slots, sportsman show, everything about sex show, beer & BBQ, little rays reptiles and even a cattle auction I walked into by accident. I'm sure I'm missing many more and I have been to the fair a few times and lost $40 in the slot machines. I may have... More

I ve had alot of nice wins there, I won three grand on the penny slots and always double my money playing the penny slots, i really like it. my only complaint is they let seniors tie up the machines, they will tie their member cards key chain around a chair and go away to the bathroom.

give yourself an hour to find parking on a friday or saturday night. Its nuts in the parking lot especially if there is an activity in the Sportsplex the same night. If you can take a bus or taxi do it.
