This is the WORST theme park we've ever reviewed. Black thugs are running around everywhere, terrorizing guests. Yelling the f word right in front of little kids. This park is NOT safe!

Sad to see this park create its own demise by the seasons pass. Locals buy the season pass and use the park as a babysitting service, which has no supervision. Park is dirty and in need of an overhaul. Paint chipping, gum on ground everywhere,...More
