My family and I loved this indoor water park. It was not very crowded after Thanksgiving and we did not have to stand in any long lines for the slides. My 12 year old loved all the slides, although my wife and I felt like we were being waterboarded on the body slide. Our 15 month old also really enjoyed... More

Very nice water park especially if you have kids. You have a Dairy Queen in place. Excellent option especially in cold months.

This water park had something for everyone, from my 60 year old aunt to my 2 year old daughter. The temperature was nice and toasty and the lazy river was awesome!

We came here as a family vacation and were very pleased. The water park is clean, well staffed, and most importantly...fun. The water is warm and the chlorine smell isn't overpowering like at most indoor water parks. All around great place. The hotel attached isn't great though.

Took my young nephew here, he absolutely loved it at this water park. It was a bummer because of the tall and large slide was closed at the time.

Me, and my 17 and 15 year old like the idea of going down one body slide, so we took turns, my 15 year old son first and then my 17 year old then they wait for me to come down, and then we come down the body slides, first my 17 and 15 sons on these different slides and... More

It was our first time visited this waterpark. We had a blast. I had kids 15, 17, 17 and 20 and they enjoyed the slides, lazy river and wave pool. I enjoyed the wave pool but did wish it was a little strong/higher waves than it was. We found plenty of tubes available (not over abundance but didn't have to... More

We visited this water park last Sunday, the last day of Minnesota's MEA break from school. We expected it to be extremely busy, and it was, but there is enough room for everyone to spread out and have fun! Plenty of lifeguards, unlimited free dry towels and free use of life jackets (great to have available when we forgot our... More

The park is very nice, and clean. Was fun for the kids to play in the water park. The lazy river is nice and the wave rider was good also. The life goods were great at interacting with the kids and helping them learn how to do it better. This is not a good place for kids birthdays. It's very... More

Purchased 1/2 day passes (11am-4pm) online the night before. Our family of 3 (2 adults and a 6 year old girl) really enjoyed our time here! We were concerned about the crowds, as it was Friday of MEA weekend, but there was plenty of room. I found the park to be very clean, lots of seating, easy access to restrooms.... More
