We recently went to Bellewood Acres for the Easter Egg Hunt. While we have been there many times prior for the great food and of course the apples, this experience was horrible. Clearly they didn't anticipate how many people would show up, and their lack of organization was not only apparent but overwhelming bad.
Advertised train rides, egg hunt and photo ops with the Easter Bunny were a nice thought but soon turned into families standing in line for hours to get on a train for a specific time, and when it was finally their turn they would run out of space on the trains and have to stand in line for another hour, or told they could walk out to the Easter Egg hunt themselves, really that was a solution, after standing for an hour and paying $7 for a ticket. Was the staff selling tickets for times that I guess they were just making up as they went along?? I personally walked with my 2 year old out to the egg hunt (which by the way wasn't a short jaunt) only to make it there after the trains and no eggs left for my child to hunt for. The gift bags had a few small pieces of candy and an activity book, very disappointing.
Food service, we ordered a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich and waited almost an hour for them to make it. No wonder kids were having melt downs and parents were all stressed out,it was just pure chaos the entire time we were there.
