    A little crowded on a hot day but the lazy river keeps everyone moving nicely. Kids like the wave for boogie boards. Not a lot of shade if they are busy. Take a hat and two towels per person--one to s...  more »

    We got coupons so for the amount we spent it was ok value. Not a lot of slides and fairly full with kid camps which made for some unruly behaviour. We spent 2 hours there and kids got bored quickly. T...  more »

    Dollar for dollar it's a good deal if you get a groupon. $20 isn't bad if you have small kids. In fact it's a GREAT watermark for Younger kids because it's easy to keep an I on them! The lazy river ge...  more »

    More than a pool, but less than an actual water park. It's a nice place, with chairs to sit in and a few water features. 4 waterslides and a "lazy river" in addition to the pool. It's a good place to go for a few hours, but hard to make a day of it. They do have food/drinks there, so that helps. The price can be expensive relative to other fully equipped water parks, so look for deals to keep it reasonable for a half-day visit.

    It's fun for what it is, meaning it's a mini version of a major water park. I give it 4 stars because the "food" at the snack bar was almost inedible. The cheese on the nachos is a bad rendition of the bad processed cheese that should be on nachos. The pretzels were below like warm and the funnel cake can't be described. Other than than, it's a cool place. Enjoy.

    Nice, small park for the small price. Perfect way to spend an afternoon if you're local. Food is priced well, compared to other fast food, and not overly cheap tasting either.

    Horrible time, some guy came yelling about a roll of seats which the seat I sat on had nothing there, the manager came and automatically took their side, I try to explain that this guy is yelling and confrontational in front of everyone. If he spoke to me like a human being we could of got it resolved but apparently he has personal issues against African American s because his whole demeanor showed his ancestors, lol. The staff did not care what I had to say because every time I begun to speak the people would start talking and she turned to them shaking her head and agreed. On the 4th July 2017 "racism at it's best" this was my first and last experience at this park. Thanks for the history lesson you guys gave in front of my children and their friends, they will never forget that USA would never truly stop discrimination. Management and staff should have handled that differently.

    The whole family had a great time! Small enough & with plenty of lifeguards, so kids can go off on their own. Only a few big slides, which was fine. Family loved boogie boarding on the wave. Lazy river was crowded, but still nice.
