We would like to thank you for the many hours of fun that you and your staff provided for me and my three girls. This was the first year that my girls had the experience of the fair and the midway. Your ride operators were nothing less than WONDERFUL- even when the girls were excited and began to run, the ride operators took the time to explain the safety side of having fun. Thank you so much again.
The kids’ ride operators go above and beyond, making the kids enjoy the ride. It's nearly the end of the day and they are still going strong. It is a pleasure to watch them do their jobs!
The Williams Lake Salvation Army Food Bank extends to you a very large THANK YOU! Past campaigns have brought in thousands of pounds of food which will provide hampers for at many deserving families or couples. We would like to extend heartfelt gratitude for your support and hope to be able to continue working with you in the future.
The ride operators on the Wacky Worm and Monkey Ride were fantastic! We had an awesome experience!
To our friends at West Coast Amusements from all of us at the Food Bank we would like to thank you so much for you continued support and generosity. We truly appreciate the support you offer us each year. Looking forward to working with you in the near future.
Thank you for the donation of food we were presented with from the Kiwanis Club on behalf of you, West Coast Amusements. Amata is a transition house serving the women and children of Quesnel (and adjoining communities) fleeing abusive relationships. We provide help, support and advocacy for women and children during their stay with us. Support is always appreciated as we are a non-profit society. We appreciate your donation to this much needed service.
The Tugboat operator was so helpful when we went on. I have a child in a wheelchair and he helped us get on and off the ride. We enjoyed the day so much because of this.
