  • This was a nice way to see some old fashioned pre-Disney entertainment for about 3 hrs. These young ladies are athletes, very well trained and have a lot of confidence in the water! We were talking to...  more »
  • What a great way to spend the day. $13 to get into this state park. You get mermaid shows, a boat ride and a short animal show. If you like you can kayak down the river, and they will pick you and you...  more »
  • Along my travels, some folks I met recommended I stop in here. I’m so glad they did! The underwater show was magnificent! This is a must see! I truly enjoyed it. The waterpark wasn’t open yet since th...  more »

  • f not for the Mermaid shows I would say don't bother and give it one star. We went today during the height of Spring Break season. There were plenty of people there to show need for more amenities that were not available. And their website didn't mention some of these. First: food was supposed to be available from several different snack places plus a "restaurant". The only thing open was the restaurant. Website did not note that. The bar could have been open as well and made a killing today. Second: water slides. At least one was open but there were 3 others. Website said all were open every day of the week during their local spring break. 2 weeks ago. But understand a lot of east coasters have spring break now and next week. Third: one restroom has signs all over telling you change rooms were available in swimming area. Uh. No. Just a restroom. So thanks I'll change where I can find a place. Lastly: the Mermaid shows are first come, first served and we wasted an hour so we could be sure to get a spot inside. I hate wasting my time. Sell tickets. Please. We went to The Little Mermaid and our 9 year old loved it as did we. Worth it but so many things could be improved here.
  • Super disappointing today. The boat tour can’t accommodate the amount of people here so it was over a 45 minute wait every time I checked. The tubes cost 8-12$ in addition to the entrance fee that was $13 a piece. The tubes were sold out by 11 am for the entire day so slides weren’t accessible. The mermaid show was ultra cheesy with a designated clapper standing behind me. She’s a worker who initiates a clap when the show desires one. Like a laugh track- seriously? Lame. Also it shows once a day and the theater only holds around 200 people so I was the last one let in and I’d been there 45 minutes before the start time. The part where you can swim doesn’t have enough chairs for the people that came today. If they are going to fill to over capacity then either tell us paying customers that we won’t get to do anything or enlarge their facilities. Overall you are offered a wildlife show with literally 4 reptiles, a boat tour that only holds a hand full of people, a once a day mermaid show, and a swimming hole that’s over crowded and sold out. Yeah. I’m glad I wasted $50 going there today.
  • The mermaid show is cool for kids but the rest of the park is lacking. Advertised on their park map are 5 places to eat - all but 1 were closed and the one that did have food ran out of most their menu items by 2pm. Came for the first time today and will never come back. Maybe worth the money for one visit if you have little kids (kids under 6 are free).
  • We absolutely love the Mermaid show. It was amazing. We have sent other 'snow birds' there and they enjoyed it as much as we did. Highly recommend! Reasonably priced!
  • Disappointed in the state with the upkeep of this park. Wildlife Show area needs cleaning up.Should not be looking at area of production as a storage area. Saw no employees smiling other than those greeting you at the Mermaid Theater. They were great. Do the guys working the boats hate their jobs? They sure act it. This could be a great state park!!!!!
