This waterpark is long past its prime and is expected to be permanently closed. I live within 1 mile of the park and have been here for over 35 yrs. The park had been a well maintained popular spot but those days are gone. I don't think it will reopen after this winter. It has not been maintained in the... More

Never went to the park, however, many generations of Ocala/Silver Springs families have enjoyed this icon for years.The company that last operated the park did not renew their lease, and the park closed permanently. Located adjacent to the famous Silver Springs, there is some indication the property will somehow be incorporated into the well visited park.

We went over labor day weekend and had a great time. Its small and a couple rides were closed after the big storm, but we had no complaints. Its clearly and old park in need of some refreshing/updating, but not to have insane lines and no place to sit was worth it. Not a full day adventure, but it rains... More

Ok so it's a little outdated but this place is so cute and just what you need for an affordable escape to florida. The slides have three levels which worked great for my kids-one a daredevil and one a scaredy cat. At only $31 for one adult and 2 kids, it's the best deal in FL!! And it's adjacent to... More

We stayed in silver springs in June and took the kids here one day. It was fun they loved the water slides. We were dissapointed that the 2 biggest slides were closed and I think it was prices too high for what was offered. But overall kids had fun.

Yeah, its fairly inexpensive to get in, but there isn't anything here that keeps a teenagers attention. Five, four small ones, slides can only occupy you for so long. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over 10, I'd call this place a bust. Could use some updating.

If you want new, updated rides then go pay $50+ per person someplace else. We stayed at the BG Sun plaza across the street. Nice newly renovated place. We went down to Rainbow springs this morning to go swimming, beautiful! We then hit up the water park across the street. We took our almost 2 year old son and he... More
