  • This was a fun place to bring the family. Even though we were here for only a few hours we easily could have spent all day here. There was a good assortment of rides, including some that my toddler could ride. There were a number of rides that were not open so that was a bummer(probably because it was June), and only one boat going on Lumberjack falls so it took 45 minutes even though the line wasnt that long. All in all we had a great time though!
  • So, in the past couple years they have made some exciting changes. But they also haven't been capping the number of people coming in so the lines are ridiculous, there is not a single thing you can do in the water park that doesn't have a Long line except the wave pool and activity pool, which are usually full of people so you can't swim anywhere so much as walk. If you want to spend your days on slides and splashing with friends, this is not the place. If you want to work on your tan by standing in line for the entirety of your stay, great option. We went for my birthday and left partway through the day because our feet were getting crispy and hurt from standing on the hot pavement all day for a minute or so of sliding etc. It would be one star, but enchanted village is pretty great and the lines get moved through just like they did before. They have been cutting out the best rides over the past few years, so what would be 3 stars for enchanted village is instead 2.
  • We used to love this place but they haven't fixed it up or kept up with minor and major repairs for some time. the asphalt alone will wear a hole through your feet if you don't wear some sort of shoes, the rules are so restrictive its hard to have fun. Still a decent place to take the young kids
  • Fun place. Clean. It shows it age. Nothing what some paint would take care of. Went opening day and amazed how little cleaning and pressure washing was not done. Lots of green moss on slides where they leak. Otherwise fun day. Lines long
  • Great place, however when I went there were 2 water attractions that were not open. The bathrooms were dirty, and lockers were VERY expensive (especially after paying for admission AND parking). The ground is VERY rough when you walk barefoot, and you can't take shoes on majority of the slides. Rocks everywhere, very hard on your feet and very difficult to walk. Other than that, the park was great and I would definitely be back! But they need to re-do the cement ground first..
