  • Not much for younger kids but my 8 & 9 year old loved the zip line, bungy jump, ropes course, and laser tag.  more »
  • This place has great activities, but I felt like we were disturbing some of the young workers who were climbing, when my young grandchildren got in line to climb. Then proceeded to not even talk to th...  more »
  • Went here for lunch and to play with my 2 year old and husband. We had lots of family of various ages. My son had fun and so did the kids to about the age of 10. The ones that were older were confused...  more »
  • We went in 7/2016 and stayed in a Villa. SO clean and spacious. It was two couples and four toddlers in our group. We only stayed one night, but we all decided to go back due to positive experience. We all loved the indoor arcade area, and the water area was the biggest hit of all! I'll be honest, my expectations we low after reading some reviews, but I've come to realize most people that like complaining in general love to leave negative feedback.
  • Paid a hefty price thinking this place should be nice for my girlfriend and I to enjoy, and boy was I wrong. First thing I learned when arriving was that the pool area/ indoor waterpark was not open and it was 4:30pm, with them neglecting to state any warning of on their website of why the supposed "low rates" were. Restaurant was closed, so we ended up ordering a pizza for delivery on their phone just to later learn that any calls made outside the hotel have added charges. Not that I care about the TV, but paying a hefty price, I kind of expected something not tube television related. And don't get me started about asking for extra items in the room if needed, which thankfully I didn't. They charge you an arm and a leg if ex. you need an extra towel it's $30! Bed was definitely old and when climbing up onto it, the metal spring frame inside the actual mattress kept digging into my body. Water pressure was horribly low when taking a shower. And for paying what I did, not even continental breakfast. My bad for not researching enough beforehand, but I honestly expected more from a resort.
  • Went to the amusement park to celebrate both of my sons birthdays I should have know from the beginning trying to arrange it in advance I couldnt get anyone to call me back! Finally did but I called 5xs, We also let them bring friends so were standing in the lobby with 10 boys and this clueless idiot behind the counter didnt know that we had pre- arranged a birthday party so I asked to talk to the manager the manager told the idiot that he was to busy to talk to me about it !! My husband had to walk over to the hotel to get this takin care of we finally get in there and the bunge jumping which is what all the kids wanted to do wasnt opened!! The credit game cards that we payed for doesnt work on the arcade games which they also dont tell you . The rock climbing wall line was so slow they only had one person working it. Never never again I wouldnt even give it 1 star but thats the lowest rating!!
  • Went there for a weekend retreat with a club for school. The location and housing was great! The swimming was a lot of fun. Definitely want to go back with my family :)
  • Awful. Water park is small, tube TV's in the rooms. When we asked them about it they shrugged their shoulders and said were booked 15320 W 103rd Ln, Dyer,IN 46311 nothing I can do about it. Not "sorry" we will try to accommodate you. We brought our kids to enjoy this place and they hated it!!! Worst money ever spent. The door to the balcony didn't even lock. Broken alarm clock. Pubic hairs all over the bathroom. Didn't even look like it was cleaned. Hot water in bathroom was gone after a 5 minute shower. Will never come back here again. Go to Wisconsin Dells and spend the extra money. They bend over backwards for their customers.
