  • This water park always delivers for our family of four (son 6, daughter 3). We come to this place 2-3 times a year for the past 6 years. We were there today, going back tomorrow. Yes, the water sometimes is cool. Yes, not all the water spouts work every time. But, not every place is perfect every single time. They keep the water heated to a certain degree. Sometimes it just feels cooler -- like today -- it was overcast and rainy. It seemed a little cooler. They are not trying to freeze the guests. We really, really enjoy this place! My kids want to stay all day every day! No complaints here! ❤😊
  • My family and I come every weekend here. We love every moment. My kids loves the Water park and my husband and I love the spa... just a wonderful place for vacationing
  • My family of six was here yesterday. We did like the way the staff were. We drove in from New Orleans. I think that will be our last visit.
  • This is free to owners. So excellent for me.
  • 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.
