We took my niece and nephews last week and it still is just as fun as when I was a kid! They had a blast, and so did I! Some of the rides I rode on at their age 15 years ago are still there and running strong, which is pretty cool. The only complaint I have is the price increase, although we went on a summer discount day and got bracelets buy one get one free so it ended up being reasonable. Times have changed and prices everywhere have gone up, so I'm not very discouraged by it. I will definitely come back again next season!
All the rides were great. Pretty good deals for food and everything. The lines for certain rides were really long. Most of the workers seemed less than excited to be there and could have been nicer. I like that the top tier bracelets include just about everything at the park. Had a lot of fun!
