Sunday afternoon my youngest, fiancée and I wanted to go somewhere outdoors. My fiancée, who lived near the area for decades suggested the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge and we decided to check it out. You approach it through a wooded development and then turn onto a dirt road you almost think is a dead end into the Pine barrens, but then at the end of the road you see the Wildlife Refuge. We had to park in the additional parking lot area which was not far from the entrance. We entered and paid the low fee and decided to take one of the trails over to the animal area. The trail was nice, well marked and had signs with different facts along the route. The animal area was nice, there were many animals that had been rescued, like foxes, beavers, hawks, rabbits, turtles, snakes and my favorite, owls. After spending some time at the animal area we walked the other half of the trail back to the main building. It was fun, interesting and the price was right for a small adventure into the woods.

Love that the seats recline!!! Makes it a home experience and more relaxing. Just have to bring a blanket since it's so cold in the theater

Diggerland USA is a construction themed adventure park where children and their families drive, ride, and operate heavy machinery in a safe family-friendly environment. Diggerland has 4 locations in the UK with a North American which opened June 14th 2014. Diggerland is the most unique amusement experience in the world. Its US location is based in West Berlin, NJ.
Took the family there recently and only skimmed the reviews on Tripadvisor and for the most part they were positive so I spent the money and took the fam. It was largely a disappointment, but still a positive experience so I'm giving it 2 stars. What surprised me the most is that after we returned, I was troubled by certain parts of the experience and lo and behold, those were exactly the points made by reviewer after reviewer [those who'd left negative reviews] and these must have all been ignored. That is unforgivable.
Let's start with the good:
1 - The park is clean
2 - The staff were all friendly and generally upbeat
3 - Parking was easy and access to the park was simple
4 - The concept is cool - kids love construction vehicles and this gave them an opportunity unlike any other
5 - I thought the selection of attractions was rather decent.
1 - It was a very hot day and there is NO shade anywhere. This is inexcusable especially because it's been pointed out many times already.
2 - The rides operate at a snail's pace. There was a large crowd there but even what appeared like a small line of 15 people could easily take 30 minutes until one got on the ride.
3 - The workers all work at a snail's pace. They literally all moved at half-speed. It was as if they had never heard of the concept of working quickly and efficiently. A simple ride like the ground shuttle which should be 1-2 minutes of loading and unloading can easily take between 5-10 minutes and trust me, safety is not the reason. It's because EVERY SINGLE seat belt has to be manually opened by the operator. That's bush league. Most parks that charge this kind of money have automatic seat belts, not these.
There are many examples of this sort of foot dragging that we experienced.
Let's just say that although we were there 5 hours, we only actually got onto 5 rides and we didn't take a lunch break. At $30 apiece, that's not acceptable.
4 - They make lots of speeches and feature signs about "no place-holding," but they do nothing to enforce it.
5 - They don't allow outside food or drink into the park, but they charge $3.95 for a drink. That's unfair. $2.00 is plenty and still leaves over room for plenty of profit. This felt like they were digging alright - gold-digging - and it didn't feel right. Don't charge $30 a ticket and then rape us for a drink.
As I said earlier, nothing I've written hasn't already been written before. It's all in the negative reviews that were left earlier. If anything, I've been kinder because I included the positive aspects of our visit, but it's hard to say it was a thrilling or great trip.
We will not be returning - the combination of high price, no shade, slow rides, slow service, and expensive snacks, make this a poor choice of venue for a family.

Customer service was AMAZING BEFORE we got to the brick and mortar building. When we got there, there was no one to greet us and people standing around everywhere. They have a sample wall which allows practice for the various locks but multiple samples were broken, or missing pieces.
I only knew about signing in because I heard someone else mention that they already signed in. The associates were great but they were running around trying to do multiple things. There REALLY needs to be a host or hostess for when people come in. We had never been there before so a brief overview of how this works would have been nice.
Once we were in the room, We were with a group who must do these for a living and they just started going when the door opened. They didn't communicate with us until I shared a clue I had found and not them. They were overbearing and didn't even care that we were in the room. Perhaps a brief introduction and an overview from the room master could have prepared ALL of us to work together.
This all said, I think this is a clever game and would like to return as long as no one else is in the room, since this was our experience. I felt bad for my daughter who was so excited to be there and wasn't able to truly participate because the group in there were savages!

This is a very interesting preserve for hikers. It features several colorful trails . The scenery is particularly beautiful as it encompasses forest, streams, creeks, wetlands, ponds and old cranberry bogs. The area is known as Evesham's gateway to Pine Barrens. The Preserve is lovingly well taken care by Friends of the Black Run Preserve. Runners and bikers also enjoy some of the trails. People from nearby residential sections walk their dogs here. Once you discover it - chances are you will keep coming back to enjoy it.

We took our 3 1/2 year old grandson and spent close to two hours watching him totally enjoying himself. He loved running around and exploring the different areas of the museum. His favorite activity was the ambulance- he loved steering the wheel and turning on the siren. Young kids will really enjoy themselves here.

Clementon Park and Splash World is among the oldest operating parks in the country and has been in operation since 1907. Founded by NJ Assemblyman Theodore Gibbs as a simple swimming destination on Clementon Lake, the property steadily grew by offering rides, attractions and a water park. Recent additions include Laguna Kahuna, a five-story, one-acre Polynesian water play land; Ring of Fire, a thrilling 60-foot looping coaster; Thunder Drop featuring a 100-foot free fall ride; and the 23,000-square foot Big Wave Bay wave pool.
For my review, I'll create a thrill rating from 1-10 (1-extremely boring, 10-a non-stop thrill ride), and assign ratings based on the age of our group (my four-person family).
Me (45 year old male)-3
The only ride that was slightly enjoyable me was the Hellcat, the park's wooden roller coaster that was built around 2004. The main thing that was scary about it was that I felt like the coaster was going to fall apart mid-ride.
My wife (44 year old female)-4
She likes the swing ride. She originally wanted to go on the roller coaster, but changed her mind.
Two sons(4 year old boy and 2 year old boy)-9
These guys loved it. There are a bunch of rides that are age appropriate, though my 2nd son was a little too short to ride some that my older son could. The children's section is usually so empty that there's no wait for the 5 canopy covered rides. They could have ridden the rides there a dozen times in the span of an hour.
This park is appropriate for younger kids. The waterpark area, which we didn't use because of the cool weather is pretty up-to-date, so I would recommend that part of the park. We found a Groupon deal, so I would check there before going.
They do have vending partnerships with a couple regional chains including Philly Pretzel Factory and Chickie's & Pete's. You are permitted re-entry into the park, so you can have a picnic out by your car in the adjacent parking lot. Parking is $10 in their lot.

Love this venue. Bar area separate from dining just perfectly. You have ambiance of sports bar when dining but it's not overwhelming. Great prices and good for a family night out.
