  • My toddler enjoy it for few hours but I will not recommend it if you have kids 10 and above although there are two water slides for them. Also the smell of the chlorine was too much near the entrance....  more »
  • We love visiting Wild Bear Falls. The staff are great. We celebrated a birthday there & loved it! Love the accessibility of the entire space for those with kids of various ages. 
  • I wanted to thank April the water aerobics instructor she was awesome and very friendly. I attended two classes this week and really enjoyed 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..
  • 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.
  • Our stay was okay. Nothing outstanding and nothing terrible. As soon as we entered resort grounds, there was not one sign that directed to the main office/check-in. Frankly, from the entrance there's a since of chaos and uncertainty w/o signage. Unfortunately, at check-in, the guest service person could not find water park tickets that we purchased in advance. She simply said I cannot help you and handed me the # to the sales office in FL. Her sheer unwillingness to help me was extremely disappointing. At that point, I asked to talk to a manager who was able to pull up our tickets purchase. A big thanks to Royce P., manager on duty. When I think of resort, I think of a relaxing, pleasant experience. The atmosphere on this resort's grounds feels more like a bustling city where you need to wait, flag for a taxi, pass by construction, and hopefully, not hit the large number of people walking in the parking lot as you drive to and from the water park. The water park has 2 entrances, one with 2 flights of steps and one less visible entrance that is handicap accessible w/o steps. Again, the signage for the accessible entrance had poor/low visibility signage. I never could figure out how to get into the gym.
