We knew we would be spending more money than if we stayed in a regular hotel. The kids had a blast! We were very happy with the staff and the cleanliness of the room, waterpark, shops and restaurants. Super clean, we call it Disney clean! Our only negative experience was with the service at The Crazy Toucan. Our waitress may... More

See our review. Expensive buffet with limted selection of bad food provided by poor service and a noisy and cheesy ice cream parlor environment. Skip it.

This is a great, local place to go for families who want an experience similar to Wisconsin Dells. It is like entering a tropical world once you enter. It's nice to just get away for a night.

Great dinner at the Crazy Tucan eatery. Very good atmosphere and the food was good. Service was great and we had a magician come to our table. Kids really enjoyed that.

A pricey place to stay for two nights - large bill - but considering the discount on six flags tickets and the waterpark I'd go back if in the area. My kids are 12 and 9 and they enjoyed the water slides although they are on the small side. If you're looking for exciting water slides, head elsewhere. The very... More

The restaurant can be very noisey and quality of food is fair. We had to leave the facility to get a good meal.
