“Fun day with the grandkids”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We love the one price admission. It made it so that our grandkids could go on the rides as many times as they wanted. ALL employees were nice and helpful with a good, positive, friendly attitude.
A couple of recommendations:
1. a covered area with tables/chairs and fans blowing would be nice to cool down.
2. the air boat closed early so we didn't get to go on it..... it should be open as long as all the other attractions.
All in all ........ it was fantastic. I have told others about it and we also plan on returning!

“Great place to take kids so they can catch fish in stocked pond”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

We ended up going here after purchasing a token package deal at Living Social. Entry is free, but everything you do is based on tokens (35 token package is $25). There are a couple free items, but we wanted to take the kids to the stocked pond. My youngest is not patient when it comes to fishing because let's face it the reward isn't always immediate and doesn't always occur. The stocked pond at Stanley Pond Adventure was a perfect fit for us. Each person fishing cost 10 tokens because we brought our own pole. My kids caught 20 - 30 fish in the two hours they were fishing. They provided bait and even had a person there to bait the hook and take the fish off the hook if you need it. I recommend bringing your own pole because the poles they provide (for an additional 2 tokens) are cane poles without a reel. We also noticed we had better luck fishing than those with the cane poles. They have a restroom and picnic area next to the pond too. Also, it is catch and release only. There are plenty of other things to enjoy there including pony rides, mini airboat ride for kids (6 tokens), jump pillow, and a couple other things. They also have a small concession stand that sold hot dogs, sodas, ice cream, and chips. We went when they were also having special Easter events - face painting and an Easter egg hunt. The egg hunt was not really a hunt, but more of a pick up 10 eggs that are in the bucket in front of you. I would skip it. My 8 year old enjoyed the mini-airboat ride. All in all it was a good day. We will be taking our kids back to fish in the pond again. Definitely check out their website...they often have a coupon deal that changes when you refresh the page. For those of you that are familiar with Long & Scott Farms...this is right down the road from them.
