  • You may wait through a long line at concessions to find out they don't have what you wait in line for :/... very frustrating, (& had a sign out advertising for it... then you may literally wait 30 to ...  more »
  • Small but totally worth the money. It's inexpensive and there's something for every age to do. Wish they had more shaded areas but other than that no complaints.  more »
  • Lots to do for all ages. Well worth the 12 dollar entrance fee... snack bar is a little expensive but has burgers and ice cream.. you can purchase goggles here for 5 buck.. and sunscreen but not sure ...  more »
  • The good- kids had fun in the pool, slides and water features. Staff seemed nice and plenty of life guards. The bad- line for admission was long and incredibly SLOW. There were multiple people working admission but it was still inefficient. We waited a LONG TIME to get in. Similar story at the food vending where line was long and super slow. Plus the food was over priced and not so great. Knowing what I wnllknow now I would have left the park to eat. They do not allow food outside the fenced eating area and the space is small for the number of people waiting for food. You might want to bring a folding chair because they went fast when we were there in July of 2017.
  • Not one of my beat of this water park. Too crowded and if you are required to eat at their concession, need to be alot more organized and staffed to Bette assist customers. Won't be going back anytime soon. We took our own lunch and were told due to maximum occupancy we may have to stand in long line to get back in. If we were already counted for, and no head count was taken on those leaving, we should have been allowed back in. No questions with armband.
  • I have a severely autistic seven year old and a hearing impaired to three year old and we do season passes and I'd pay three times as much bc the lifeguards are like family and they spoil my boys rotten and they are well looked after and loved.. great place...
  • The staff seemed to enjoy being there almist as much as we did. Clean facility, plenty of supervision, and fun things to do! 2 big slides, wave simulator, lazy river 3.5 feet feep pool, and a place just for kids, and the food was good. Couldn't be better.
  • Our family had a good time today at the water park. We enjoyed the water slides and lazy river. The pool was congested and not as big as Otter creek, but that may be because this park has a lazy river.
