I went with family members and it was quite busy. They didn't have enough workers to run all the rides so you had to wait while the employee finished with one ride before you could ride something else. Some of the rides were pretty rough such as the roller coaster. It really throws you around and hurts if you are... More

we LOVE this place. We have 3 kids (2,4,7). This place is such a small slice of heaven for families with young children. YES things are old, and YES the rides all go round in a circle. BUT for children to be able to get onto a simple ride and more often than not even ride with MOM and DAD... More

We went here for the day. It was really reasonable priced and you could spend the whole day there. This park is perfect for smaller children, as some other viewers wrote older children would probably not have as much fun. They had the whip ride and a nice ferris wheel which would be nice for the older ones. There is... More

As a child I use to go to this fun amusement park. It's still fun and cost efficient. It's a smaller park with fun rides. It's a nice day event.

We went Labor Day. There were no lines and kids 7 and younger had a blast. I think the park is best for children 10 and under

The first time I came to this place was as a child 35+ years ago and can honestly say nothing has changed. The nostalgia of it keeps me coming back. Recently took my 3 year old son here and he had a ball. One of the ride operators told us this place started out as a carnival (in the 1950's... More

We need to keep places like this going. Places like this are getting harder to find. We had a blast on the Old School Rides . The train ride was really fun. I wish I took my kids there when they were younger.

Nothing has changed in the 45 years since I was last there! That's good and bad. I can't say too much however, as this is based on seeing the place from the parking lot. I did not go in.

I went here with my younger kids ages 4,6 and 8. The park is small with only 25 rides. Several rides were either not working or the ride attendant was at lunch and in some cases working two rides. One ride had an attendant that looked at her iPhone the whole time the ride was working so not exactly safe!... More
