writes on September 17, 2017: "We use your site and recommend it for
people looking for wonderful places to take their children and have a great
day... this place simply does not fall into that category :( Do not waste
your time or money with these ungrateful rude people. We came out to spend
money and have a nice evening. On their site it says the hayride closes at
6 pm. Nothing else is stated. So we go on the hayride to the pumpkin patch
which we paid for.... The guy tells us after a few minutes of walking around
with our toddler that there are more back waiting so we have to leave now,
but maybe he can give 5 min. Gee thanks. Then we get back and I get tickets
for the cart train for my toddler to ride... I tell the guy Im getting him
something to drink which we also bought from them and then would be back.
Not one word was said about them closing it at 6. Right at 6 we walk over my
toddler all excited and the horrid woman says nope we're taking it away now
you waited to long. Come back next weekend. They hadn't put it away it was
still right there... No reason at all that these people had to tell that to
a kid. There is no way on gods green earth I'd ever spend another dime with
these people. All I heard was how great Suters was... How Kaiden would love
it. Yeah... He loved not having time to find more than 1 tiny pumpkin and he
loved being told nope no ride for you but your mom sure can pay for it.
There are to many places to waste your time with these horrible people."
