Excellent fun on a hot summer day. Two grandchildren plus one friend & my spouse. It was hot and humid and the kids enjoyed the highest waterslides and the adults enjoyed the lazy river.

The best time to visit seems to be early morning, although be cautious with breakfast. The water slides can get intense, it was great to be sliding on an inflatable tube. The lazy river is a good cool down after the slides
