While everyone is entitled to their opinions, I respectively disagree with some of the facts stated in Halloween review. I have been at Strawberry Park only for a couple of years but I have to say that I find the staff very hard working and thoughtful when putting on the events. The "laminated certificates" is so that more people receive awards and appreciation is shown for all participating. While it may not seem it to you, but a lot of thought went into those; as well as the many, many, many trophies that were handed out to winners as well. I find that much nicer than the credits awarded to only a few campers each weekend. The grill prices.....sorry no increase this year and unless you took a ruler to the Haunted House last year and a ruler to the Haunted Maze to determine that it is EXACTLY 1/6th of the size of previous years, hmmmmm. There are no outside companies running events with the exception of dj's or bands that are hired; as was in previous years. If you are bored at bingo, I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I think if you had expressed that to the many manager's, they would have appreciated your input. These are the facts. I think people need to give the new owners and staff a chance. The first year in any business is the trial run. Some things work and some things don't. It's better than resting on their laurels and never wanting to do better. There are many things to do here and we never get bored.
