  • This was great to do for a few hours even though the water park was closed. I was happy with the rides for my little ones under 32" tall that still were able to enjoy the park. 
  • Nice place to visit with kids. please remind that tickets sold... Are half value... you need at least 2 tickets for 1 ride. skip the Speedy Gonzales one.. 1 round only with 2 tickets. Apart from cost, it is worth. Dear dollar parking and aside the park, easy to find.
  • It reminds me of a fair which is really cool, and the rides are alright. I like how it was free admission, and you only have to pay for the rides you want to ride (unless you purchase a wristband). Also remember to have your ID because you have to be atleast 18 to purchase tickets, no younger. As for the staff, they looked like they really hated everyone and honestly weren't the friendliest. I asked some questions and they weren't the nicest with answers. I also recommend to anyone who doesn't like aggressive roller coasters to not ride the wooden coaster. It's very very jerky, and hurt both myself and my little sister. Overall though it's alright, but try the fried Oreos and the fresh lemonade! Very yummy. Food is reasonably priced too.
  • Where to begin. Good points.... nice military discounts for those that give& serve. Very pricey. You can walk in free but rides are tickets or wristband. Not really worth the price unless military maybe. I would say it will keep the littlier kids busy. The staff was very rude except for few. They close earlier than posted. They charge more than posted. You do pay again for parking if you leave The splash park isn't worth the extra if you're staying in a motel that has a lazy river and play area. My 8yr old granddaughter got bored quickly especially a the water splash. I will not return as I thought I'd might.
  • The rides are okay. Lines were short. But for 30 bucks, an all day pass will become very boring as you just ride the same rides over and over repetitively. It has basic amusement park rides, but nothing that really wows you. The reason I give it 1 star is not because the lack of rides and high admission price, it's because the staff and faculty are very rude. They all had attitudes and short tempers. Very little patience. I wish I could have gathered names to report, but they flip their badges backwards just so you can't see their name. But these kids in front of us couldn't buckle themselves and she insulted them right in front of us. Save your money and do something else. Oh, and go carts aren't included with your pass. Which was a bummer too. Luckily you aren't trapped inside once you're there, you can leave and come back. So you aren't forced to buy their 10 dollar burgers. Probably won't ever come back again.
  • Great place to take the family. A few of the rides are oddly placed and don't really have a way to watch your kids/friends/family riding the rides, but hey, should be out there with them anyway. Plus I don't understanding why the bungee jump has to cost extra when it's at an amusement park... Same for a rock climb... You should not paying like when you want to try and win a prize like a game, it's part of the entertainment, we are not at a mall or shopping center where it's customary to charge for these... Give me a break...
