  1. Shame on you Sprayberry! I have never seen so many children as upset as I have today. Children left with nothing and were crying. It was so unorganized. You should rethink this next year. I have been going to the egg drop for 7 years and this was the WORST. First the helicopter dropped eggs on the crowd, not the field. Then you had 4-7 year olds getting eggs at one time and the parents were getting eggs instead of the kids. Only one gate was opened to enter and exit. I have a feeling next year you will not have as many participants. So disappointing!

  2. Wow! I so remember that disaster in 2015. The helicopter dropped the Easter eggs right on our heads . Kids were crying and so disappointed with the whole event. We never returned.

  3. Awful, the staff who coordinates the logistics and culture of this event should be ashamed of themselves. I thought my ten year old would be fine for the Easter egg hunt, nope. Many of the parents encourage aggressive behavior. My daughter was pushed down by a mother and other kids grabbed eggs out of her hands. She came out sobbing with 0 eggs collected. Not worth a 30 minute drive.

    Get the %$!&ing parents not off the field and manage logistics better. Companies sponsoring this type of “family fun” should step away from this event. You’re supporting violence towards children.

    Parents – do yourself the favor of participating in something else, … unless you like Black Friday shopping at Walmart and the culture that comes with that. Fairly identical.

  4. My babies and I have been attending this Easter event in particular for yearsss, we’ve had lots of fun each time and go back every year. I’m surprised at the comments ☹️. I think my only complaint is the price of the all day play stamp to jump- because I have 5 kids But overall, We have beautiful pictures, memories and fun every year. Even in the RAIN ☔️
    I google the date of the event about a month before every year to make sure we don’t miss it. Bring a blanket to lay out on the grass or bleachers and relax/eat while your babies play. They have multiple Easter hunts for dif ages throughout the day, but I see people arrive very late and miss out
    Upon arriving, there’s an Easter bunny to get pics with, stands for food and snacks, jumpy houses, lotsss of space for kids to run wild, music to vibe, space to relax, and the best part- the helicopter drop.

  5. I have a 23 yr old, 18 year old and 11 year old now. This was a tradition for them for over a decade. They are bigger now but I will continue this with my grandkids. Initially it was unorganized but it got better over time. People need to consider it is FREE,!!!! Get there early BEFORE the open time.
