  • This was a good place to go on a rainy day to spend a couple hours with the family. Designed with young children in mind.  more »
  • We took our kids (5 & 3) for a day of fun at Wild Bear Falls and loved it! It was perfect for their age. They had a great water play area for the little ones with climbing structures, slides and sprin...  more »
  • The kids loved it. It was rainy and cold our whole trip so we spent a lot of time swimming. The water was warm and kids were loud.  more »

  • My four year old had a ball but their website advertises an area with slides and fun for "all ages". After being displaced from hurricane Matthew we were trying to make up for our lost beach vacation. They don't allow adults on any of the slides in that section and their website should state that. Management told me that it is for all ages they just don't allow adults on slides. Their website should clearly state that. My husband and I had to stand ankle deep and watch our kiddo but weren't allowed to slide. This area is clearly not for all ages. It was a waste of money for our family, a simple pool would have been just fine and free.
  • Seems like a great place to stay, did a Timeshare presentation. Would like to see this place after they restore it.
  • Every week I come to here. My home is very far.from my home to here drive 5hours something. But everybody staff is really kind . But only front casher? Two woman's.young woman and glasses woman. glasses woman is today first time meet. But so rude . Cuz I'm customer but not saying . And face an impression of a description you know... So may be no more come to here . And Keep in mind! Your salary is our master!!
  • It's pretty good considering that it was free with our stay, however I would be disappointed if I paid full admission. The slides and lazy river are fun, but the outdoor hot tub didn't have any jets going. Half of the components on the main kids sprayground were broken, and there was even some caution tape up... The toddler area had nice warm water and was fun for the little kids.
  • First time visit to here. Good water park. But staff's is good,but Sunday close time is so fast..
