Big Kahuna's has rides for all ages, from splash pads and pools for the little ones and those who dont want to ride on the slides, to fun and exciting slides that give you butterflies until you hit the water at the end.

Fun for the smaller kids, not many thrill seeking rides, but all in all a great way to relax and enjoy a waterpark while on vacation.

Great family fun. Ride 'til you drop. Rides are well supervised and well maintained, except that it seems odd that shortly after opening for the season the wave pool was shut down for repairs. The only glitch in the day was the food service. You...More
