This was for a birthday party package. They did a nice job setting up & sticking to set time for pizza & cake to be served on upper mezzanine floor. The girls all had fun. This really is an easy way to go for a birthday party, you don't have to worry about the food, decorations or goodie bags. I... More

Water park was fun for the kids!! I feel it could have had better seating arrangements for parents. Our last day kiddie pool wasn't working for the start of the day, the surfing ride was closed the entire 3 days we were there. Arcade was okay, not very many games for younger kids. Liked the amount of Staff/life guards they... More

We did a 1-night stay, parts of 2 days waterpark package and it was really nice and economical! The hours then were 9am - 9pm. We brought our 11 y/o son and his 12 y/o cousin and they were able to go off on their own from our connected hotel room. This waterpark is one of the biggest we've visited.... More

The waterpark itself was nice. There was something for everyone in our group. Definitely a place to watch for deals and price changes online. Our trip was almost canceled when the park doubled it's prices for the weekend we were planning to visit, but we found an online deal the night before and were able to make the trip happen.

This water park is large, it has a lazy river, it is warm, they have many different water stations for children to play in/on. A surfing station, water tunnel, and a spray park. There is something for everyone that will keep you busy all day long. Awesome and clean. They have a balcony with tables over looking the park and... More

Although, all eight of us had fun at the park, there was confusing information given to us by the front desk. When we arrived, we were told our package admission to the water park would be around $15.00 per person. When we decide to go to the park, they told us the charge would be $31.00 per person. After having... More

The water park has a lot of fun things to do. We enjoyed the lazy river, whirlpools, pool, and all of the slides. There are a lot of staff on duty watching the water. We came out of a white slide on a tube fast, and we hit an empty double tube sitting in the water. My grandson hurt his... More

Myself and two small girls, daypass for $109. Aside from the staff allowing someone to cut in line when purchasing tickets, everything went very well. The park is very clean and well-maintained. The staff were all VERY attentive, constantly rotating on a patrol of all areas looking for kids in danger...we felt very safe under their constant supervision. There were... More
