My friend and I went there this past weekend (4/23) and let me tell you, this park is in dire need of an enema.
It smells like garbage everywhere, so many rides are either down or gone completely (for example Goldrusher had only one train running while another sat on the side tracks with a tag that said DANGER DO NOT OPERATE), many of the buildings are in terrible disrepair and I saw lots of wood rot throughout, the rides themselves are dirty and gross, 3 rides broke down while we waited in line, I could go on and on and on.
We used to go there back in 1980-1981 all the time aswe had season passes so this was sort of a nostalgia trip for us (even though I live 30 miles away the last time I was there was 3 years ago and it wasnt this bad). Let me tell you, we were so disenchanted we left at 4:00, just 4.5 hours after we arrived. Thank GOD it was a free day for us because had I paid for admission I'd have been so angry.
There's honestly no reason I would go back there, even for free. I'm gonna stick to Disneyland and Knotts!
