  • 2nd trip since reopening. (Annual pass holders) Visited over 4th weekend. Lots of hand sanitizer and 6ft markers and always have ur mask on...got the cooling covers u can wear around ur neck that...  more »
  • First let me say that there should be separate parking costs to just walk through City Walk if you don't plan on going to the theme parks but anyway. Nothing was really open when we arrived. Yes it...  more »
  • We didn't wait longer than 30 minutes to ride any ride. Crowds are small due to the fear of covid. This made it great for us, as we were able to ride every ride in both parks, some twice, in a day...  more »

  • Wonderful place to visit and stay. Location is the best. Great warm pool, food was excellent. Service was great in all ways. I definitely would go back. I could get wet in the park, go back to my room get changed and continue enjoying the park in a matter of minutes.
  • Fun. Packed.. but fun. Definitely pricey, but a once in a blue moon treat, is good. Plenty of attractions to keep everyone in the family busy. Great for kids & adults. Sometimes the park is packed & the attraction rides are ridiculous, so when you decide to visit the park, is very important. You can always purchase an Express Pass & skip the lines or pick the Single Riders line. You may not be able to ride with your friends/family, but you'll definitely beat the lines. Overall, the experience is great & a lot of fun & I recommend a visit.
  • Very knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful staff. They always had an answer to any question regarding the park. The park had more food, drinks, side shows, and games rather than rides. Rides were fun. Most of them were more visual effects from a screen with some motion to have a reality 4-D feel from section to section. Great large park overall but need more rides.
  • Awesome attractions. Tickets were a bit pricey, but it was expected. A very fun time over all! Guest Services was outstanding with help. Staff was great with help and answering questions. Will definitely go again when we’re in town!
  • This place is just awesome! Staff is so friendly and helpful. Park is very clean. The Marvel character dinner is a fun extra. The characters engage with the entire family. The rides are like no other and the food is fresh and reasonably priced for a theme park. The meet Blue the dinosaur is worth visiting. Spend the extra money on the unlimited pass to get the most out of your day. I wish I could give it a 10 star rating because 5 stars just doesn’t seem to be enough.
