  • Wow, all I can say is I'm surprised at all the negative comments about Emerald Falls. It doesn't sound like the same place I remember. I worked there in the mid-90's and when I was an employee, we took pride in the park and it was one of the nicest, cleanest, parks on the beach. In fact all of us employees had nightly "chores" we would do before closing (someone would do the trash, someone would clean the bathrooms, someone would sweep, etc). The management I worked for (Johnny and Stan) were always on top of things and we had to make sure the park was clean at night for opening the next morning. I enjoyed working there and we were always taught to be nice to customers so I think it's a shame hearing about how employees today were "rude" because that's not the way it used to be. I visited the park a couple of years ago when I was in Panama City and I did notice it wasn't in nearly as great shape as it was when I worked there. For instance in the kiddie section (that's where I mostly worked) the train had 4 cars, and the only time it had less than 4 was if one was being repaired. I noticed the train now only has two cars (the engine and the caboose) and it looked like the paint had been peeling. As far as prices, we didn't have armbands back then but we had a package deal were you could get like 25 tickets for one price (most rides took either 2 or 3 tickets.) I hate to hear the negative reviews because it was a fun place to work. I hope the park gets some updates soon and they don't end up closing. That would be a shame.
  • So much fun. We go every year. Put-put is only $10 for adults for 18 holes. Go cart track is super fun. Both the kids and adults in our group love it
  • Love the games but the teenage workers need a lesson in customer service! No smiling and not friendly at all! When you ask for help they act like it is a bother.
  • Great place to have fun with the kids. Go cars for both street and water and an awesome homeroom and rides for the kids! Very adorable.
  • The staff was wonderful! The place was nasty! The manager was a jerk, and rude!
