This water park is fun for anyone who likes extreme experiences. I will give it that. They have enclosed water slides and various terrifying drops. Then they have the other extreme, such as a lazy river, a wave pool and other pools. For someone who would like a good old fashion easy going slide that doesn't give me the experience... More

Our kids loved waterslides and wave pool. This is a yearly vacation spot several times during the summer for all of our family.... More

This is the biggest water park in the area, and it is often crowded as a result. There will be long lines for the largest slides, and you will pay through the nose for pretty much everything. You can bring a cooler but will have to pay for that privilege. If you plan for the cost, it is a really... More

The attractions could use a little cleaning most of the time. The wait for some of the more exciting attractions is rather long at times. Lifeguards are very attentive and professional. Do not leave any items unattended, even for a minute. People will walk off with your towels, and shoes...

Overall this is a decent place for friends, families, couples to attend. Lines can be long at times which is annoying (as with any amusement/water park. Ticket prices are fair. Food and drink prices are high. Most staff are pleasant and friendly. Feet will get hot on surfaces in the summer. Picnic area outside the park but no food allowed... More

It is a fun place but expensive for food. You are not allowed to bring your own food in the park. (not sure about that because it been a long time since i been there.) I think in the picnic area you can have food. ) I suggest you call ahead of time and ask. You can buy food there.... More

We got season tickets for the first time this year and really enjoyed our several visits. Great variety of rides, and typically lines are tolerable. Bathrooms could use some renovation, but not horrible. Bring lunch and sit at the picnic tables; food prices are too high.
