Sellersville Theater

Reviewed By KuhnsGuy

Seating is tight and the theater is very drafty, particularly if you are seated near a door. However, the theater is quaint and inviting as well as intimate. Shows are moderately priced and affordable for most everyone. Drinks and food are available before the show but expect to pay a premium. Seats are ok, a bit uncomfortable but doable. Great venue to enjoy a concert or event with friends without breaking the bank

Skydive Philadelphia

Reviewed By NJ_Diver79 - Parsippany, New Jersey

Many of the reviews here are from people who scheduled ONE tandem jump at Skydive Philadelphia (located at Pennridge Airport, near Perkasie). That doesn't mean their perspective isn't valid, but I hope to provide a different perspective for people who may be interested in utilizing the services of this business.

I am an AFF student (learning to solo skydive) and recently spent a significant portion of four different weekends at Skydive Philadelphia, completing my AFF course. One of those weekends was attending a 5 hour ground school. At first I found the interactions with the staff to be a little brusque and not entirely welcoming, but with each additional visit I had better and better interactions as we warmed up to each other.

The other three weekends I spent literally hours around staff members in-between jumps, watching as they interacted with each other and with the numerous customers who had come for either solo jumps or tandem jumps. I probably witnessed at least 75-100 customer interactions and they were never rude or unprofessional. If anything the instructors did their best to make customers feel welcome and safe. I don't recall seeing anyone leave unhappy or dissatisfied after their skydive. There may have been a few frustrations with delays due to weather, but that's the nature of the sport, and it's purely for safety reasons.

As for my own interactions with the staff, I had three different instructors and they were all helpful and encouraging throughout my course. Their primary concern was safety, and it showed. They did their best to help me complete the program in a reasonable time and with minimal delays.

The equipment was new and in good condition, with the exception of flight suits. There weren't many options and the ones that did fit were noticeably worn with tattered leg cuffs. The helmets, goggles and containers and canopies were new though, and well cared for. The twin-engine King Air from which we jumped was the only aircraft available to the operation and appeared to be in good condition. The pilot was safe and friendly.

The facilities were sufficient. An upstairs lounge had chairs and tables. Outside, the waiting area had three or four picnic tables. Two porta-potties were available. There is no food at the airport, but there are good cafes within a short distance.

In summary, I found the operation to be run in a friendly, professional and safe manner.

Now... onto the sales and reservation process. Like many others, I made my reservation over the phone through a service provider called RushCube. Any attempt to call Skydive Philadelphia directly (unless you have their unpublished number) is actually routed through RushCube, a Georgia-based company that bills itself as an adventure service provider. In reality, it's a middleman and frankly, couldn't be less interested in your particular situation. They sold me the package without a full explanation that would have been relevant to someone who had no knowledge of the sport. They came very close to acting in a fraudulent manner, as once I had purchased the package and paid in full, I couldn't get anyone on the phone for almost half a week to schedule my jumps. Their answering system is flawed (it incorrectly prompts you) and it's extremely rare to get someone on the phone, unless you're calling the sales line. Nearly every time I called I got dumped into the voicemail system and had to wait for a return call, (due to 'high' volume). I'm fairly certain they only had one or two customer service people working there. When I threatened a refund, I finally had some movement on my situation.

I can't say enough about how displeasing it was to deal with RushCube. Avoid dealing with them at all costs.

The solution is go directly to the drop zone site, and speaking with the manager of the location. Book your service directly with them. You may save some money, and you will definitely save the frustration of dealing with snake-tongued sales people 900 miles away.

I give Skydive Philadelphia 4 stars. In reality they deserve 5, but since they are associated with RushCube I had to dock them. If I could rate them separately I would give RushCube the worst rating possible.

Peace Valley Park

Reviewed By Mark V - Lansdale, Pennsylvania

We've been going to Peace Valley for decades. Lake galena was where I learned to windsurf before they ruined the launch area. You can still rent rowboats and canoes. A six mile walking trial is perfect thought a few hills will get you working. The nature center is a treat.

Picnic areas are nice and I understand you can reserve them for family picnics, etc.

Biggest problem is bicycling around the lake has gotten to be a struggle because of the poor condition of the trails and others with baby carriages and strollers have complained as well. Once upon a time it was fun for roller blades, too, but forget it now.

We went so that the children could tour the factory and buy chocolate. We should have called prior to going, which is what the staff recommends. But we looked around the shop and found plenty to purchase. I appreciate the fact that they have the...MoreWe're sorry to hear that the factory wasn't working that day.

We have been to The Montgomery Theater several times. The children's plays are excellent! It is a great experience for young theater goers. The adult plays are equally as good. There is not a bad seat in the theater.

Quakertown Farmers Market

Upper Bucks County's largest and most visited attraction featuring 100s of businesses and entertainment on site.

Reviewed By JTL07825 - Blairstown, New Jersey

A very long indoor "market" with food and everything else under the sun. Vendors line the narrow walkways selling STUFF from furniture, perfume, gold, trinkets, shoes, animals, electronics, butcher meats... Quite an experience. But at least the vendors were no pushy.
