I do not like amusement parks. I worked at one in my youth and they are gross, full of surly staff and the patrons of amusement parks are not the sharpest sticks on the planet!! Well I was so pleasantly surprised by Calaway! Even though most of the the ridestaff were quite young they were friendly and professional, and eager to make the guests feel welcome and important. As a former amusement park ride operator myself I liked that they adhered to height restrictions, watched their rides when in motion, and had a good grasp on safety rules.
The rides did not look run down and were cheerfully painted! The park itself was very family oriented and not so much like a teenage meet market as other amusement parks are. I liked the large variety of rides my children (ages 4 and 8) could ride on. Even the little one had about 15 rides for her size!!
I also liked that the pricing was so reasonable. Park entry was fair and the little extras such as mini golf and the shooting range were only a few extra bucks.
The food was. . .OK. . .amusement park food. Burgers, fries, chicken strips etc.
I also was slightly disappointed by the train. It drives you around a field. I wish there was more to see on that train ride!
Overall great value for family fun! Far superior the rides of K days or the Stampede and at a better price! And the staff are so great!!!
