“Accident waiting to happen !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Not a safe place for children . My boys (5 years old and 7) of course love it but the staff and manager do not care for the children's well being . I went to a birthday party here and quite a few children were hurt. I called several times and have yet to have to manager / owner call me back. The children required medical attention. The staff did not check to see if the children were properly strapped in leading to a toddler falling off the ride. For the price you pay ( id rather give my money to a carnival that comes to town ) you would think the staff would be trained properly. This plae is a joke. Beware of safety issues !!!

“Local family fun for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were visiting friends in the area and we decided to go here with the kids. Our 3 year old loved loved loved the rides. Some were just for kids and others for the whole family. Very affordable. Look forward to coming back again.

“Old and tired but my kids love it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My kids love this place and its easy to get to. Yes, rides break down quite a bit, skip the food, and the staff seems like they would rather be somewhere else. But you can't beat the summer night deals and its a safe, contained park that has lots of parking. Something to do.

“Save Your Time and Money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The rides are nothing more than anchored cheap rides you can find at your local county fairs or church-sponsored fairs. Management is rude and unwilling to work with parents with children. If you're looking to spend money at an overpriced place like this, at least nonprofits will appreciate the business.

“The Easter Egg Hunt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I loved Bowcraft and it has the best easter egg hunt where they hide all the easter eggs around the amusement park and you go find them! They have some of the scariest but by far the BEST rides!
