How awful. The rides were "okay," but the petting zoo was awful. They had animals that should not have been there and were clearly misearble. Of particular concern were the llamas, the camel, and the TIGER. A Bengal tiger. In a 20 x 30 cage....More

This is a fun place for children, lots of rides for them. I was very concerned about the animals although their cages seemed clean enough. Very 1960's old school amusement park.

This is one of the nicest little family places around. The teenagers even enjoyed it. The price was reasonable also.

$24 is not a lot to pay. Even a game of putt putt is over $10. Here, there are animals, a magic show, some amusement rides (helicopters, Ferris wheel, Rudicoaster kids coaster, carousel, little cars, kiddie boats and kiddie motorcycle/school bus ride), Santa’s house where...More
