Big Rock started in 2010 with 14 rides of which our most intense rides were a Gravitron and Roll-O-Plane. At the end of our 4th season we are 30 rides and growing. Been a hell of a run. Thanks for the compliment TiltCharles.

very, very nice show that has grown leaps and bounds since their inception. Matt and crew have put their heart and soul into the show and will be one to watch in the upcoming years. if others would put as much back into their show as Big Rock has, all shows would be pristine. They have pride in the appearance of the show. Matt is a hands on owner and has listened to the best in the business.

Big Rock is a really nice show, looking forward to seeing that show one day and how he grows.

He cares about the new rides and having them, but also the old classics as well.

I like the Extreme freak out copy they have, made by Funlight Rides is it? Anyway, the reason I like it better, it seems to give better air time, and the A-frame looks more solid if you ask me. The point to where the A-frame's outriggers are at the bottom, and if you look, they don't go too far in at the top. It's just a matter of time before a KMG Freak Out's A-frame's gonna snap one day, wait & see...that A-frame's too close together, where-as the Extreme's A-frame is just Right! So Big Rock, don't EVER get rid of the Extreme, ya hear? LOL Clown
