cant believe it is still open!

It used to be at Ascarate Park and was beautiful. It is now in the desert and just is boring as can be. We took an out of town guest and he was bored out of his mind.

One of the best old time places to have family fun. Close to the race track and close to the mall. Prices are fair and family friendly.

Imagine if you had your own personal amusement park! This is it! We went on a Thu night after the hot day cooled off. It was nice because we seldom had to wait more than one ride cycle. You can easily get through a dozen rides in 3 hours and still have time for food!

The first thing I noticed about the park was the cleanliness. The park was very clean and very tidy. I really liked that there was a lot of shade and that you could take food and drinks. There were shaded areas and seats. There were grass areas you could sit at also. The staff was friendly. The park was a... More

This is more a place for small kids. If you are around the area it may be fun. Way too small for guests from towns with big amusement parks.

It's like a mini theme park and really cheap. The unlimited bracelets were 15$. Compared to fairs and boardwalks that I've gone to its a great price. There isn't many kiddy rides for like 42 inches and below type deal so it would be best if you have grade school kids. I really liked it, gave it a 4 because... More

This amusement park is full of rides that are more like carnival rides than an actual amusement park. There are however, two roller coasters and a log type ride. We went on Labor Day weekend and the lines were not bad at all. At most we waited 10 minutes in line and that was for the larger roller coaster. Most... More
