"A Great Time!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

If you love amusement parks then this is always a fun place to go. They have a nice selection of rides and I appreciate that they have stayed open past the end of the summer season for those of us coming in the fall. It is expensive to buy tickets so you are sort of forced into a wrist band. It takes about 6 rides to break even. That, however, is easy to do. I love to support old amusement parks! If we don't spend money there, they are not going to last against the competition. It was clean. I felt safe and the staff was friendly. Win! Win! Win!

Unfortunately I can’t say June 2008. It was that year that I went. I was so scared of big coasters but the coaster I rode changed all that.

"Swamp Fox is worth it"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 08, 2020
For fans of wooden coasters, the reason to visit Family Kingdom starts and ends with Swamp Fox. This is one of the most underrated roller coasters in America and is a classic. Once upon a time, the third row was the best seat, as the back of the first car would pop you out of the seat. It has gotten a little rougher over the years and could use some retracking, so the front row now gives a little bit of a better ride. The third row is still wild, but maybe a little too much. Anywho, they are loading every other row and only have one train so lines can get long quick. Do it early and do it often. The rest of the park has a strong carnival feel. There's nothing wrong with that, but I'm not as big of a fan of flat rides. The dark ride is a nice bonus as well. It is pretty fun and well maintained. The park has done a good job of putting sanitizer around and spacing ride seating, but the visitors generally do not wear facemasks, do not space out, and do not care. This can be particularly concerning on busy nights. Swamp Fox makes this spot worth visiting, but the rest is very much on par with an average carnival.
