We went on a Sunday night, thought this would be a perfect way to end our summer. For a $100 for a family of four, this was super expensive. Especially since some rides were broken down, there is trash all over the place, weeds, muddy...More

Friendly place that is a bit run down but the people running the rides were friendly and helpful. Something rare when it comes to amusement park employees. The rides are getting old and in need of repair. All in all it was cheap entertainment.

Sure, it may be a little worn, even a tad on the shabby side, but where else in the world will you find a park initially constructed during the turn of the century golden age of trolley parks, generously updated during the 1930s Art Deco...More
