  • Not a bad little place. There is not anything around like it at the lake which makes it unique. Price is consistent with the area.  more »
  • Out in the middle of nowhere is a water park like no other. This is something for everyone, single, couple or family and needs to be on your bucket list. You can even have fun as an escort or chaperon...  more »
  • The water was very cold and clean. Everything seemed to be somewhat outdated and needed painted otherwise it was nice on a hot day. The smaller children were having a great time, a little crowded and ...  more »

  • Spent this past Sunday the 25th there with our grandchildren and a great day was had by all. It's not a huge water park but it's well laid out and for the most part the young people that work there are pleasant and professional. Yes, some of them were overly strict in the areas they were watching, but keep in mind that they're kids and kids probably making $10 an hour. I had a couple of comments from the lifeguards about lifting up my feet when I as going down the Lazy River, but i just smiled and said okay, okay. We were told by our friends that it can be crazy there on super hot days but if you get there a little before they open at 10 am to get a good parking space and stake out some good seating, you're golden. ~There is a big picnic area where you can go out and eat lunch with your family if you don't want to spend big bucks eating inside. There is a basketball court out there and the families out there were having lots of fun. ~There are private cabanas for rent for the day, about $55 but if you have a big bunch of folks who need and want shade, this might be a good way to go. ~Otherwise, there are PLENTY of umbrellas, chairs and tables, lounge chairs etc to use IF you get there early enough. ~The bathrooms were fairly clean and the food we did purchase there was okay. ~No food is allowed inside although we did bring water bottles and snacks for the toddler but weren't obvious about taking them out. ~There are free life jackets about for babies and toddlers scattered about in different areas. ~If you cannot find a place to put your stuff down, look down around the not so populated areas, over the bridge at the lazy river etc. There are many, many places to catch some shade if you need it. ~Bring sunscreen, a hat and even a sun shirt if you need it. The rules say no street shorts allowed but I word my black shorts with a bathing suit top and had no problem....as were many people and little children.
  • Was much smaller than it looked from the highway. It pretty much was all that you could see from the highway. Overpriced- I bought 2 bottles of water and they only wanted to give me one cup of ice. Who ever heard of customer service to bring back clients? Crazy that they wanted to charge me $2.74 for a glass of ice water. The rapid ride was cool though, that was about it. I hurt my leg on one of the rides because the pool you got sent into was only 4 feet deep. It should have been a little deeper.
  • We had went there yesterday for our sons birthday. It was our very first time being there, and We got the Ultimate package. I can't express enough on how GREAT everyone treated us. All the employees were very nice. Katelyn the supervisor was so supper sweet. She had everything all ready for us when we had got there. They even had wished my son a Happy birthday on the sign we we arrived. It was def worth every penny. And we will for sure going to be coming back. Thank you again so very much for everything you had done for us. Can't wait to see you all again.
  • We ended up getting discount tickets period and decided to take a trip out there on a Saturday. It was a great experience. My 3 kids really enjoyed it. Can easily spend hours on in there the rides were all great. The only thing that I was not happy with was the price of the food ended up paying over $60 to feed two adults and for kids and I try to get the cheapest thing as possible. Would definitely consider going again.
  • Disappointed, they are overly controlling about things like the lazy river- have to be on a tube. And tubes are inadequately marked youth/adult given how intense the tube slides are, if you are big/tall or at all heavy the tube thing becomes detrimental. (The rapid slide felt unsafe compared to other parks- very short and intense- was impossible to stay seated. Felt like the website was totally misleading about what was available to do. You could free play in wave pool and kid area but other wise felt like it was overmanaged or felt like it wasn't well managed safety wise (tubes all the same color). Definitely catering to one clientele. No food or drink allowed brought into the park. Tubes for anything other than required rides had to be rented. Will hold out for Schlitterbahn next time. Fun for teens and folks expecting to pay for everything. This was one stop one a week long trip for us, not a destination in and of itself and Lake of the Ozarks and Osage Beach have MUCH better to offer.
