  • We went on a Sunday and thought it would be packed. There were lots of people, but the wait lines go pretty fast and there was always plenty of tubes. The slides were great for all ages. My husband and I love thrill rides and these rides gave us a good scream or two! We did order a couple of adult beverages, but I don't think there was any liquor in them- or very very little. Just a little disappointed in the drinks available. I understand it's a family place, but sometimes us adults just need a mixed drink. I do suggest wearing swim shoes around the place. The ground gets pretty hot and could hurt little kids. Even us adults said it was too hot! Overall, very pleased with our first experience here. We will definitely be back when we road trip again.
  • Shade is so cheap. ADD MORE. LOTS MORE! Other than that, it's way to big and good for W-CF (lines are shorter than other large waterparks). He built it for his Birch employees, and I can't believe he makes a profit. We the people collectively thank him. But ADD SOME MORE SHADE! The hot pavement and rough pool surfaces will damage your feet.
  • As a medical professional i was very impressed with the life guard fanny packs that all had face masks visibly sticking out, ready for use! I was even more impressed with the periodic random training throughout the day with "Timmy" that keeps the life guards alert and aware of wjats going on in the water! Nice job at keeping safety a priority! Thank you!
  • Cabana is definitely worth it on a hot day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Tons of stuff for my 3yr old to do. Plenty of adult stuff too, I would have had a great time even without the kids!
  • It's very nice I go at least 3 times a year put it's quite pricey 26.40 for people over 48"
