  • This place is very small, my toddler had a decent time this weekend. I think it was overpriced, but we had a coupon. The hot tub was closed, which was disappointing because there isn't much to do here...  more »
  • This place serves its purpose if your kids under 10-12ish it may do. They have a couple water slides a small lazy river and a toddler/ zero depth pool area. When I came they really did not have conces...  more »
  • The waterslides weren't running when we went which was the reason we went in first place. The pools were nice along with the lazy river but it wasn't really a water park.  more »

  • Good times. I am not sure what all the poor ratings are for? Complaining about the price, and staff, water temperature, and cleanliness. It all fine. In fact I think it is quite a good value, and the staff was right there keeping order (not yelling) . I wish they did yell at some people that have no common sense. This lady was swimming the the lazy river against the current for exercise right in the way of everyone. Some other kids were trying to climb up the slide tubes when they were off etc. The place was clean. Water temp was nice and warm. The only thing I would suggest is they improve lighting. We went on an overcast day and the place is quite dark inside. Why not put in a couple more windows and or a few lights. It would make it look a lot nicer in there. We have a 2½ year old and he was a little scared with all the noise and the huge water dumping every minute or so over the play area. But it was his first experience so it's no big deal. There were younger kids and they seem to be fine so it depends on your child. We will go back I am sure when my son is a little older I am sure.
  • The kids had a blast in the water park, my youngest had a small issue with her skin sensitivity due to the large amount of chlorine in the water. The "staff" of lifeguards seemed absolutely miserable leaning against the pylons not watching the water at all. As a former lifeguard their behavior and professionalism was abhorrent. Only one out of the three on the floor actually watched the water at all. As for my stay at the hotel everything was clean and comfortable but the other guests seemed to stay up till 0400hrs running up and down the halls above us.
  • The hotel is great! The water park is a different story. Its over 100 degrees in the water park, so you cannot breathe. The water park staff was not very nice. If you need a place to stay that hotel is great but don't bother visiting the water park.
  • We booked a birthday party for our daughters 9th birthday party here, yesterday.... The kids had a blast but the staff was AWFUL. AWFUL AWFUL. There was one gentleman lifeguard who was actually doing his job, named Hayden- everyone else was texting non stop and not even watching the kids. "I hate my job and want everyone to know". One girl was asked why she looked so unhappy, she replied with a single word, "bored". We booked a 3:00-6:30pm, and they tried telling us to leave at 5:45. I asked for forks for the birthday cake, and I got sighed at and was asked, "why?" None of the restrooms had soap, which was gross. Thank you again, Hayden.
  • Needed a way for the kids to rid themselves of winter energy. Chose this place. The water park is small but fun. I would have given 5 stars but it is to chaotic. Being small, if the hotel is full which it was, it was just insane. My kids were getting pushed around, the lazy river was taken over like a traffic jam of crazy kids without supervision. Staying in the hotel was like listening to a never ending stomping children's birthday party. The staff however are super friendly and do everything they can to help. Wish there was a way to have less crowds.
