  • My family and I️ enjoyed this park that we went twice! We purchased the season pass and saved money that way. It was great to accommodate our toddlers all the way to our teenagers. I️ believe everyone...  more »
  • This place is great for the kids - water park, putt putt golf, bumper cars in water and on land and lots of other fun activities.  more »
  • The water park was pretty good. Not all that clean. Was a fun day out. Would recommend getting a reserved table as you get someone to bring you food and drinks and comes with a locker.  more »

  • Beware Blue #8 and the right hole. It was eeating balls like it was the last hole. Happened to us probably 7 times. Each time dropping a ball down to knock the other loose before finally taking 2. And there's a brick missing right in front of hole so if you don't catch it, aren't lucky, or aren't paying attention, your ball could make its way down the hill 2 paths down near the parking lot. Told the attendant and he said he'd have someone look at it. Didn't offer me 2 other balls to replace those lost. It worked out sharing our other ones until Hole 18 where they're gone for good. All that aside, really enjoyed our evening there and the kids had a good time. I'd recommend if you're in town looking for something to do. We've often done The Track in years passed but I'd say they're probably pretty comparable. Foooooore!!!!🏌️‍♂️🏌️‍♀️⛳
  • This is our first year going to Big Kahuna's Water Park. It's not the biggest, nor the best I've ever been to, but it is good. There is a good variation of slides, tube rides, and two separate lazy rivers. See the website for more info. Sure, food is outrageous - where is it not at a theme park generally? We found the staff to be courteous and helpful. The 'season' has yet to start and it will become more crowded, but having our platinum passes with free parking and something we can go and do any day of the season is great.
  • As locals we visit every year and have had annual passes. Sometimes it's just too packed and feel that they should limit occupancy. Also wish there were more healthy food options and lower prices on junk food :)
  • I've seen people posting negative comments because of all the walking, junk food, and some things are not fun for adults. Remember, this place is geared towards the little ones. But I, for one, had a great experience. The only bad things were that in Thunder River I constantly got stuck and only one lifeguard was helping people. The other thing is overpriced food. You really can't afford it on top of the parking admission and tickets, but I suppose this is a tourist attraction. Overall, it is worth a season pass and provides fun for both tourists and locals. For the people who prefer to stay dry, they have golfing and some adventure park rides. I had a great time and will go again this summer!
  • Amazing staff. They are always friendly, and keep the apartments maintained and safe. Great apartments. Pool is beautiful and much more comfortable than any other apts I've seen. Dog friendly people and staff. Residents are super friendly.
