  • We visit annually because it is a fun time. This year we did visit a bit later in the season and was disappointed that there were not enough lifeguards working for everything to be opened at the same time. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful. The park was well maintained and very clean.
  • This is a great place for fun. Not only kids but adults as well. I love it.
  • A large wave pool is surrounded by a concrete beach and no shade. The slides were fun. The funnel slide was worth the wait. I liiked
  • The kids and I loved going to this water park and the Columbus zoo is included with the ticket price. After our last trip we are looking at getting season passes.
  • Great water park for all ages. Also Clean and plenty of helpful staff.
