It’s ridiculous getting around using a wheelchair. The ground isn’t flat! Tripping hazards everywhere you step. There are some buildings that have ramps (definitely don’t meet ADA standards) they are too steep to get up without assistance and once you get into them they’re so...More

I've been to other Ren Faires, and this one is much more commercial than others. Basically, you walk around and spend money. As other reviewers have noted, it is expensive and food is overpriced - $5 for a soft drink. They don't take credit cards,...More
