  • I had an amazing time with my kids, the lifeguards are always on top of their job. Making sure everyone is safe and constantly walking around at all times. You will never see a lifeguard that is on duty sitting down here, like in other places. The staff is so polite and welcoming. The pools are very clean, the slides are in great shape and overall the water park is amazing! They have food stands that sell a variety of food options. My kids enjoyed themselves so much and so did I. I gave it a 4 out of 5 only because, the deepest the pools get are 4ft. Which is pretty inconvenient for people who are looking forward to go for a swim. But it's not a big deal, I guarantee you will enjoy your time here! Amazing' and so worth it.
  • We came here on Wednesday 5.30 pm ( me and 4 kids) , and they didn't let us go in because they made up special rules that prevented us to go in - " only season pass holders" allowed to go in at this PARTICULAR SPECIAL time. seriously??? The park was almost empty and they didn't let us in. Great management.
  • Our 1st visit was on a week day. Close parking. Not too crowded. Easy access. Plenty of lounge chairs. Short waits. The service was young but very helpful. The lifeguards are run like a regiment and very disciplined. The lazy river is fun - and there is enough variety with the slides and other pool attractions to keep kids of all ages entertained.
  • A fun family place. Kinda pricy and over-regulated. Lots of arbitrary rules and mandatory "breaks", even though the water is 2 ft deep. I'm not a fan of being "supervised" by some kid 1/3 my age. I guess it's part of existing in a society where anything is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Maybe they should have you sign a waiver, so you can actually enjoy the place?
  • It's a great place, all in all, yet there are a few things that really deducted from my experience. I'm a season pass holder, so I've never had to wait in the ridiculously long lines, but when the capacity is reached, you have to just stand in the lines until people come out which doesn't seem fun. When I got in today, ALL the umbrellas were reserved by camps which, if I remember correctly, is against the Water Mine's policy. It was very unpleasant having to sit in the sun. Later on, I went to get some food and found about 30 children from a camp waiting in line. I get that camps are supposed to be fun, but if it starts to effect people who waited hours to get in, and others who PAY for a season pass, I'm not coming here anymore.
