We visit annually because it is a fun time. This year we did visit a bit later in the season and was disappointed that there were not enough lifeguards working for everything to be opened at the same time.

Enjoyable but expect a crowd on a warm day and get there early if you want a chair! Slides and park in general are nice. Lazy river is my favorite! Everything is expensive like in an amusement park which should not be a surprise but...More

You can rent cabanas, not sure cost. No grilling. You can only bring a bottle of water and small snack into Zoombezi. There is an area between Zoombezi and the zoo entrance where you can park your coolers and there are... More
