    We’ve been faithful swim club members for the last 10 years, so this review is way overdue. Every year, my kids and I look forward to summer days spent at either pool, Knowlton or Hidden Hollow. It reminds me of a pool experience of my childhood where kids become fast “summer friends” and run between the tennis courts, playground, dives, slides, swim team and of course the snack bar. Are the spaces sparkling new? No, but they are clean enough and well cared for so people aren’t being hurt. We spend most of our time at Hidden Hollow and with the swim team, which I totally recommend. It is an unbelievable bargain at $55 per child, after joining the pool. The HH coaches: Will Murphy, Bob Piotti, Kelly Dale and others, are fantastic. They coach the kids in technique and give them a rigorous workout WHILE keeping it fun! My kids love it and the sense of family they get when at practice and while competing. PLUS, we have had an undefeated season this year, which doesn’t hurt either :).Do it~ join the pool and the Hidden Hollow swim team, you won’t regret it!!

    Went on the Saturday prior to Halloween. It was extremely crowded, which was too be expected. However, the food area was insufficiently staffed and everything from food to fruit & veggies were over priced. Saw a few nice X-mas pieces but again these too although beautiful were extremely over-priced. Everything costs from the pumpkin patch, hay rides, etc. It’s a great day trip for the kids but beware & bring plenty of cash. (They do take CC’s)

    Ok so I brought my family and some friends here for some late night fun. My husband had purchased 3 tickets for the hayride and somehow in the mist of standing in line my husband somehow misplaced the tickets.. Im not sure how, but things happen.. I think he might of dropped them by accident while taking pics. But we tell the lady at the booth and the entire staff gave us a hard time about it. The lady even said I dont remember ever seeing him and she just literally sold us the tickets a like 10 minutes prior. The whole thing was embarrassing and they even had him look around the lines and area for the tickets. This stranger was sitting there with his son and he felt so bad he gave us his ticket bc his son was afraid to get on the ride. The staff didnt even offer him a refund after hearing about the baby being scared, They said and I quote “well now you have one ticket you have to find the other 2″. Very Very Very POOR customer service. I could not believe what was happening. Finally after 15 minutes of sheer embarrassment the lady then says ” o now I remember them, their ok let them on” and then they let us on.. what a mess. and just to let everyone know we came a Hr before they closed and it was not that many people there so I really dont understand what the problem was,,, overall my daughter and her friends enjoyed the ride and we made the best out of an unfortunate situation…

    Sooooo….we charge $1.99 per you pick pound of apples that are not of any particularly interesting variety. The orchard has been sprayed with some heavy duty pesticides, notice no flies, wasps, or other insect creatures? Poisoned apples aside, overpriced poisoned apples aside, poor varietals of poisoned apples aside, it is the massive amounts of wasted poor varietals of poisoned apples that should make the owners ashamed. Every tree has had at least 50% wasted on the ground of rotting in the tree. Send them to a food bank! Of course this would mean we are poisoning the homeless and boring their taste buds. How do I know about the pesticide? I have worked in an orchard. That many fallen apples would/should be crawling with yellow jackets, ants, and flies.Next we move onto the mass of humanity that shows up here every weekend. We are talking thousands upon thousands. Parking is a nightmare. There are sparse restroom facilities. I counted six port-a potties and two four person bathrooms. The regular bathrooms are disgusting. No soap, feces smeared on the walls, no toilet paper, and no one cares. I thought there was a bare minimum of bathroom facilities required by the health department?! If there is no soap here, what do you think the staff has to wash with? Ick.My biggest gripe is that, those of us that remember, this rip off of a family enterprise had a “fire” that demolished the (then)main structure. The family cried to the public. They waxed and waned poetic about the damage to their farm. They asked for donations to rebuild. They stated publicly that their end goal was to rebuild the lost structure. It has been over ten years. They have built plenty of other crappy structures, not one large enough to address the mass of weekenders, but no rebuild of the lost round barn. Oh, I can’t stop there. Bring your small ones. They are more than happy to charge money for every activity. This includes the child’s play area which has several large unkempt apple trees dropping rotten apples all over where your kids would like to play, which you have paid the privilege for. The food is a total rip off too. We are talking serious Disney World rape. Except this food is served by unfriendly people that we have well established have not washed their hands in a very long time. I will never bring my family back as I’m fairly sure by next year they will charge for parking.

    I agree with the rest of this year’s reviews. This place must have gone down the drain because it was awful. If you think you need to use the restrooms, HOLD it until you get home or even to the nasty gas station down the street because I guarantee this place’s bathrooms are much worse. Their corn maze wasn’t even open, so we spent $4/person on a hay bale maze that my 1-year-old solved by himself in 5 minutes. Then, we went to the playground where you are supposed to pay $1 per child. There are rotting apples (notice no bugs!) all over the playground. Their store prices are WAY above what they should be. I expect top-quality organic for those prices. Then, at the apple picking, yes. There were very few bugs. Any place that hadn’t been spread heavily – and I mean HEAVILY – with pesticides would have been SWARMING with bugs from all the fallen apples that hadn’t been cleaned up, but nope. I saw maybe 5 bugs in my entire walk through the orchard. It wasn’t worth the trip.

    This sis one the most amazing orchards I have ever been to. It has the most delicious peaches and my kids and I had a blast. Everything there is high quality, and it is an absolute must.
