I hope you got a chance to see our response on Facebook, but I'd like to reiterate our apologies here. Our records show that you were credited and refunded the cost of the ride -- it can sometimes take 3-5 business days to show up on your statement, so that might be where the confusion came from.

Half the water slides were closed on the weekend we were there. One of the 2 that were open required at least 3-4 people in it.... More

Spent 4 nights in the back 40 log homes with 15 friends and their children (kids were all under 11.) Has a fantastic time. The homes were clean and spacious.
