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.

We thought we would try it... liked the eclectic idea and hoped for shorter lines. Run down and obvious they are putting nothing into it... it is not old times feeling...it is rundown. Some of the rides listed are not even in operation. Disappointed and...More
