Fun and affordable! I was say top end is 8 years old though. I went with three kids and the 10 year old had to try a bit harder to find fun.

We were there in July with our 2 year old Grandson. He had a great time. It was fun watching all the Children playing in the Water & on the structures made for them.

Hello, I do believe that there are wheelchairs available on arrival for those that may be in need of them. They are free to use within the park. There is also a water wheelchair that can be used in the splash pad.
