  • Purchased the weekday pass while on vacation. We went twice and had a blast. All rides were up and running and the waits weren't bad. We didn't have any troubles and the life guards seem to have fun with guests throughout the day. Some rides did seem like they needed more rafts to make rides move a little faster. Overall very impressed with this park as it was our first time visiting. If we are down in this area, we will definitely visit again.
  • Horrible time at Adventure island I was there a month ago and the the security there sucks at there job. This one brown looking security guard was so rude to me he looked like he might have been 20-24 who knows. Also the life guards didn't seem to care about there job the lines where so long. My wife asked this one lifeguard where the life jackets were and she said in a rude way over there is believe her name was bailey or some dumb name like that. Also Brendan was being a smart ass. And the supervisors never even came to talk to us about our complaints so this is a horrible place. I hope the manager sees all this. I guess ill be going to Aquatica..... NEVER COMING AGAIN
  • Rented a cabana and was happy at first!! Bought all day dining pass not worth the money!!! Long lines for rude staff and chewy food!!! Ants crawling IN YOUR FOOD as you try to eat it. Lockers are COVERED on ants so if you rent one make sure you shake everything thoroughly!!!! Even in the cabanas!!!! I mean I understand that it is outdoors and all BUT if paid Lots of $ for something, I expect it to be a great expierence!!!
  • Loved the lazy river. Was a great play to visit with the kids. Wish the water was a little cooler to help with the summer heat. If you need a quick cool off try the kiddy pools.
  • Took my kids as a treat to start their summer off. Both kids loved the place. The oldest loved the slides and the wave pool and my youngest love the wave pool and the lazy river. I like that they have floats designated for the areas, just wish they could add to then throughout the day. Love the easy pay system. We will return before our pass is up. Food is good too.
