“A Taste of Old Time Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

Just walking into Clark's reminds me of my childhood. From the bears to Merlins Mansion, this place is good old family fun. Don't miss the bear show, and everyone needs to go home with a stuffed black bear. And who can forget the scary Wolfman!!

Now don't think you're walking into the Disney of the northeast. This is old fashion, great for the little ones, and a trip down memory lane. You'll love it!!

“Great way to spend a day”

There is everything a child and adult can do. Of course, the bear show and the wolfman take precedence over everything. And if you have the opportunity to see the circus, that is a bonus.

“I just keep going back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

My parents first took me here around 1976. Now I have been taking my sons here for the last 15 years and now my 1 year old daughter. The bear show is great, although it has been the same for the last several years we still enjoy it.there is just enough to do for a good days entertainment. Definitly a must see in 2012 for those who haven't visited Clarks yet! Keep up the good work, and I must say this is the cleanest family run establishment in New England!!

Fun activity for a few hours. The bear show was cool and the train ride was hysterical. Make sure to bring your camera to both. Food is disgusting - eat before you go. Really fun local treasure. Everyone should visit at least once in their life........
