My comments are regarding the Schmidtts Carnival Rides at the Paul Bunyan Festival.
I personally think that the carnival made Oscoda look like a trashy town...the rides needed painting...the people running the rides looked like they needed a bath and new clothes...and on the Dinosaur Ride for the children the frayed "bungie cords" that were put across my grandchildren weren't attached on the sides...the brackets to attach the cords weren't even attached properly and were flopping around on the sides of the dinosaurs...
I was not comfortable even putting my grandchildren on any of the childrens rides...and as for the adult rides and the games...they looked trashy as well...and dirty...
The Chain Saw Carving and the food areas not with the Schmitt rides were fine...
From what I saw of the Festival last year and years past I would stick with what works...this Carnival was horrible...
My daughter who is in her 20's said the rides and games etc looked like the ones from when she was 4 yrs old when we lived downstate...And they looked trashy back then too...
All I can say is that I thought this made Oscoda look awful...
Just wonder what anyone else thought?...
