“Drag racing at Beech Bend”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Went to the drag races at Beech Bend on Sunday night. Wasn't a big crowd but my family still had a blast watching the drags. If you're into street car racing with some drags would recommend going.

“Beech Bend Drag Racing Track is tops... .. .O o-”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Bowling Green KY is home to the best "drag racing" facility in the USA...!

Speaking as an old drag racer, it's a real treat to attend drag racing events at
Beech Bend. The covered grand stand & stadium seating close to the track,
shade trees, good parking etc etc... Make this track a favorite for both racers
and fans alike...
We live 12 hours from BG but use Beech Bend as an excuse for a good long
back road top-down cruze...
Many top-notch events are contested at Beech Bend but by far the best
is the "National Hot-Rod Reunion" on Fathers day weekend...
www.nhra.com .. Select "Reunions" for the details...

Like stepping back to a much simpler time at this awesome track...!

If you need a room, I suggest the Bryce Inn at Smith Grove, about 20" from the track...

Check it out, you'll be glad you did...

See ya down the road... .. .O o- Carl (BC Mayor..=)~

“First time visitor, will be back!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Although I live within 1 1/2 hours of this amusement park, I had never been before. The day we arrived was overcast and not many visitors. This allowed for us to get on rides immediately and most of the time, just our family. Most all rides were open and operating, so we spent the first half of our day riding all the rides. We then took a break for lunch and ate at the park. It was reasonably priced, given it was an amusement park and the food was OK, not 5 star but again, it's an amusement park. The second half of our day was at Splash Lagoon and boy did we have a blast!!! There is something for all ages, young and old. We had a great time in the water. It started to rain and they continued to let us stay in the water, until....the lightning came. Then out of the water we were told until at least 30 mins. had passed without more lightening. We almost made it to the 30 mins. and it lightening again, so the 30 mins. started over. Since we had swam a lot up to this point and the day was coming to a close, we opted to just go ahead and leave. If you are in the Bowling Green, KY area, this is a MUST do activity.

“Best of Both”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The amusement park area is very large and full of entertainment. The only negative is that the area with rides seems a little outdated...but it was still lots of fun and took me back to my Opryland days. The splash lagoon area on the other hand looks new and it was a ton of fun. Loved the lazy river that went around the water park area. I, my sister, and our boys played for endless hours. An ALLDAY trip.
