  • Honestly the waterpark is a bit disappointing. It's got most of the slides you need and a decent kids area but for the size of the park it seems like there could be more there. We still go because it's close but only when we can get a discount as the regular prices don't seem worth it. The staff is decent but the waterpark itself is underwhelming. The best slide is definitely the family tube slide - this one is very fun.
  • Well run, clean place, convenient to get to and great for kids. Brought my daring 5 y/o and less daring 3 y/o there, and both had fun. Some exhilarating water rides, and other low key water float options. Second time we've been there, and will be back again.
  • We stayed at what is now the Radisson hotel, attached to this water park. There are always lifeguards on duty keeping the crowd under control, which in itself is a daunting task, so we really appreciated them, and made sure they heard it. One in particular wouldn't look up from the floor, the rest were there making sure you were having a good time, and being careful. Over all it was nice, freshly painted, and everything worked, I am not sure if the arcade is part of the water park or not, but it is really cool. The only complaint I have is the price, but I am sure that it costs a lot to keep a place of that size open, so I will give it a 4/5. --- Watch your head on that one fake rock in the tunnel O.o
  • I would say for its location it's nice. Price however is up there. That may just be due to the Radisson connected to the park. Maybe good to visit once in a lifetime.
  • Nice watermark there is an area for the little kids with small slides and small stairs I took my two toddlers there they had fun. Many rides and surf lessons
