Overview

“I had no thoughts or memories of Burkewood Fun Park that did not include something horrific, bizarre, stupid or deadly. I was dead inside. The threat of obliteration by leaking gas only made me yawn.”

The March 27, 1981 opening of Burkewood Fun Park’s 19th season disintegrates from a source of anticipation into an inexplicable morass of sabotaged rides, near-drownings, nitwit managerial decisions, tainted food and freak accidents, as described by a brand new employee on his first day.

“The memo just came out . . . everything’s gone crazy.”

Spend a bad day at the amusement park with Dale, Barnyard, Lump, Deet, Pot Roast, Beefalo and other park employees as they make no attempt to salvage the remaining ragged dignity of this family-owned fun park, a self-described mashup of birthday party and torture chamber, where animals run for their lives, clown dunking tanks have disclaimers and the water is always polluted.

And learn the secret of stepping off a moving Carousel without killing yourself.
