  • Right off the bat, my trip was skewed by the fact that there were virtually no lines the entire time I was there. So, I am trying to temper my review because I do not want to overstate things; the lac...  read more »
  • I've been here three times, and it gets better and better. I did a few sides the first time i went and has a blast. We went for our third time july 2016, and my two year old loved it. The staff is sup...  read more »
  • We went 2 weekends ago on a Sunday and it was great! Hardly anyone there (as school had already started) and no lines. A couple of the rides were not open and the hot tubs were not hot but the 3, 4 an...  read more »
  • We went to the park for my birthday! Had a blast! Employees were friendly and helpful! Food was decently priced. I even found a gift shop that was running a sale on t-shirts! Score! Had a wonderful time. We will be going back!
  • I'm only giving three stars because usually the park is fun and management gave us a full refund back. After being there 30 minutes and spending 215 plus dollars we find out the wave river isn't working and neither is the rapid river. Which were the main things that we came here for. All I'm saying is if the park is going to have main things like that closed you need to be offering an extreme discount and to inform the customer about it. Completely wasted 2 hours driving down there for something that wasn't open, I could have gone to pirate bay for half the price and more fun. Then after the manager instructed the guest services lady to give us a full refund she tries to argue with us why she won't return certain things and then instructed by her manager to stop arguing and give us the refund. And same lady who wanted to argue cut my daughters wrist with the pair of scissors she was cutting off the band's with. Ugh, this place is a lot of stress, definitely won't be returning soon.
  • All the large water rides were closed for the biggest part of the day. It was very very disappointing to say the least. Especially because it was a family trip of about 15 people and we were limited to only 4 or 5 small rides and the lazy river... some attendants claimed it was due to water pressure issues and other employees said they were understaffed. Either way, for the money it seemed like quite a ripoff! I should have took the feedback on here a little more serious!
  • I love this place so much! My family and i go almost every year and it is very fun. the rides were fun and safe, no one got hurt and the employees/lifeguards were very cautious and good at taking of the riders on all the slides and water rides. I rated it a 4 stars because of how dirty the water and park grounds were. Overall, it is the best water park i have ever been to!! I recommend it!!
  • Love this "brand" of water parks but next time I will spend the extra time and money and just go to the new braunsfuls ( sorry for my spelling) location. I thought by going on a Friday when school was in session was a good idea .. But the hours are shorter .. Part of the park was closed to public. So very limited on rides. To begin with its a small park anyways . Also all the bars are closed at the park during school days ?! Only good thing was the price was a tiny bit cheaper I guess because the hours .. But still not worth the 80 bucks for two adults. Like I said next time I'll just spend the money and more time and go to a further location for a lot more bang for my buck.
