  • This is very honest and pure experience at the Beech Bend at fist time visit and from one of amusement park enthusiast. I'm an international student at the local university, I recently heard great thing about Beech Bend, it's a small park but it's worth to go out and have fun once in your lifetime in your life. There's BIG BUT, It was one of terrible amusement park facility ever. My friend had leg swelling after riding adult bumper car. I have posted the picture of swelling of legs from riding the BUMPER CAR. The Bumper car had a lack of safety for guest, there's ride operator saying safety procedure in the beginning but can't believe they don't PA system in 2017. If you are in local carnival then yes, but this is one so call the Amusement Park in Bowling Green KY. The ride operator was yelling and screaming but can't hear it a single word because of all surrounding noise. I know ride operator did their best to follow the safety procedure but no, I would understand and accept the situation if it was 1995 then I would understand. But come one, this is 2017. So when all Bumper cars should go one way, people who didn't hear safety rule, they start going crazy. I don't think Beech Bend management don't care about their guest's safety at all. There were many old rides that should of get rid off a long time ago and the seat belt that doesn't work properly. What a culture shock. Ride operator looked exhausted, which I get it, I would be like them if I worked in that place too. If you care about your spending your VALUABLE MONEY PLEASE drive one hour more and go somewhere else like Holiday World or the Kentucky Kingdom. DO YOUR WORK GUYS, not even having shelf to put my backpack and jacket is wrong, my jacket was ended up soak from other people's drink. Your mission should be providing a good and fun time, not robbing us.
  • A water park and a theme park all-in-one? Holy tamale!!! For one price you get access to everything, except the go-karts are extra. The prices are definitely competitive with any other water park or theme park in 100 mile radius. If you're military or veteran you get in for free. Most importantly Beech Bend is clean and a well-staffed, unlike some other places we have been to right? Don't forget the live music or the racetrack. There's also plenty of picnic area. There's plenty to do here for adults, children and very young children.
  • This place is terrible if you're trying to bring your autistic child to have a fun time. My son is now 2 1/2. He can't talk and it's hard to even get clothes on him to get out and do something together as a family. We were letting our son play in the grass because he is sensitive to certain sounds and it was calming him because Beech Bend is such a loud outgoing environment, when some rude employee told us our son absolutely had to have his shoes on even though our son won't wear shoes due to his sensory sensitivity. I proceeded to nicely tell this employee that our son was autistic and tried to explain his special needs and she wasn't having it. Instead of escalating and losing my temper we left. If your child has some sort of special needs like mine I wouldn't bother bringing them here. They don't care and will make you leave. Money wasted and our vacation ruined.
  • ❤❤❤❤ What is not to love!? Great rides! Something for everyone! Plus an awesome water park, again with something for all ages!! Military (active and retired) get,in free!! And your dependants get a discount! Just super park and super friendly people!
  • This is a nice place to visit. One major problem is there is only one maintenance person whom maintains more than one person should have to maintain and works more hours and days without a day off and is not appreciated. He works hard to make sure all runs smooth so as to make your visit more enjoyable. If a ride is down its not because he isn't trying to get it running. Just remember he is only one person with the weight of the world on him. He gets no breaks and isn't allowed to have any days off and still he doesnt complain. He works hard and even when he gets things back up and running He gets asked when he will get other issues resolved. So do me a favor and before you get angry over a ride not running or etc please remember he is only one person and doing best he can to make your visit a pleasurable one. So please take time to just say thank you and how much you appreciate all he does to get park up and running. Thank you.
