  • Fairly disappointed with Calaway. They don't ever seem to get new rides or update their look. Their paint job is super old and everything looks pretty run down. They're the only amusement park within miles so they have a pretty good monopoly and charge at pretty high prices. I don't know why I go there still. Probably because they're the only amusement park within miles.
  • It's a nice amusement park. Short on things to do after kids turn 13 or so. Lots of good rides for the little ones and the elementary school set. Prices for food and drink are high, like all amusement parks. They do allow you to bring your own food and drink in which I give them credit for. My kids like to go as often as I'll take them so I guess that's the bottom line in terms of whether it's a fun place or not.
  • Awesome place for a family and friends!! Have lots of fun rides. Also, stalls with all kind of goods. Love the roller coaster!! 👅❤
  • This park is great for it's value. Line ups however are fairly long and they lack the efficiency of a Disney Park. Hence my review of only 3 stars. They park is seemingly run by teens who are friendly but if they worked on getting the lines moving faster by simply adding a couple of more staff would gain another star in my review. Food through out the park is rather poor in value but our kids love it. They Log ride though is a must get there when the park opens and go right to this ride as this line up is the longest.
  • Fun for kids. There is a surprising number of rids for young kids (3 and under) which will entertain them for hours and plenty for the old kids as well. If you buy a season pass early on (before Christmas) its practically free to go. The park is definitely showing it age, but with the recent update to the log ride it appears that management is looking to update and make improvements. There are plenty of food kiosks with lost of variety around and the price is what would be expected, certainly not cheep but acceptable for a "treat".
