I visited the park on the first day of Fright Fest and Deaf Awareness Day, It was unusually hot for the day, making the long lines for food a bit unbearable. The park management did not have the Disco... read more »
nice people that work there. all of the family loved going on the rides and haunted houses. food and drink is pricey but that is to be expected.
So we went there for the first time very exited to see everything including the animal attractions and what they had to offer. With only being there a couple of hours by 4 pm (had to go on some rides ... read more »
As someone over 21, the membership is a pretty hard sell. When my contract is up, I will have shelled out $170 for my 12 mo. membership. w/ free parking. I admit I did buy it as a fun way to get exercise, not solely for the rides (instead of getting a gym membership). There are many asphalt-paved areas, so it's a great place to walk, and the park is by the water so my asthma doesn't bother me much :) Unfortunately, it's a bit awkward to be at the park if you're not a parent. I don't have any complaints about the staff, they were all very friendly and helpful. However, as with other "family" parks, parents will run you off the sidewalks with their strollers - and we're talking all throughout the park, not just by the Looney Tunes area for the kids. There's just not enough for adults to do by themselves. I love the animal shows as much as ever though. If you guys sold a membership with no ride entries, but all free concerts, animal shows and events, I'd have bought that instead.
Horribly crowded and not enough employees. Waited 30 minutes in line for food and when I got to the window they told me they we're closed. Waited an hour for lunch at the main food court at 2pm. Other food options were closed. Payed $18 for a souvenir soda cup with free refills. All the refill locations were closed. This meant waiting another 30 minutes for refills.
I loved Medusa, next The Joker! Then Superman ultimate flight! White water rapids I got SOAKED! The dolphin show was cool the have a dolphin there 52 years old I'm 53! Normally dolphins don't live that long but this one boogies on! Awesome park they really need to replace v2 with Bat man 4D! Right near Joker!!
Everything was amazing! Rides and roller coasters were top notch! I got to go on all thrill roller coasters (except for V2, it was closed) and Cobra. I also got to go on Monsoon falls, Tasmanian Devil, and other fun rides as such (except for white water safari- line was too long). Everything was great and food was delicious! The only problem was that lines were really long (~25-30 min.) for Kong and Joker 2016, but I guess that was due to the fact I went on a Friday during July. So if you are planning on going on Fridays or during the summer, expect it to be crowded.
This has always been one of my favorite places to go to. I love this place! Love the rides, plus they have animals and shows as well. Plenty of things to do for all ages. Just like with all theme parks, it can be crowded and have long lines, but I mean, that just kinda goes with the territory. If you have a schedule that differs from most, the lines and crowds aren't really that bad. Weekends, especially during Summer is prob when they have the most amount of people there. When I was in school (or had friends that were homeschooled) we would go on the day they set aside for homeschooled kids. I think the amount of people were probably half the size as usual, which was nice. If you sign up for their newsletter, they'll let you know when they have special events and stuff too.
