I was very disappointed in our recent visit to the waterpark. We have been in past years and had fun. Our bad experience this year was completely due to rude lifeguards. We were being yelled at constantly. "Get away from the wall; get away from the rope; don't sit in the tube that way; get under the pavilion; don't enter... More

This is a nice water park and our children enjoyed it. I don't like that the amusement park is separate. The earlier the better if you plan to get on multiple slides. The Flowrider was a hit with us!!

We first went with our two teenagers to the water park but it's really designed for smaller kids. We enjoyed the slides, wave pool and lazy river but it was extremely crowded so we didn't slide many times due to the wait. It was probably not worth the admission price. We stayed for lunch and it was a mad house.... More

How hard is it really to manage this place? It used to be a good formula, pay one (expensive) price and do it all. Now they have split the park into TWO parts and you have to buy admission to EACH separately. The bad news: neither is that great. I guess it's better than nothing, but not by a lot.... More

Very nice activity for children. I felt like a kid again! Friendly staff. Admission is sort of pricey, but well worth it. Will have to visit again next time we travel to Gulf Shores.

Not a ton of slides but still a nice waterpark. There is a relatively new 6 tube toboggan racer slide that went in place of the older enclosed tube slides (Hurricane and Black Widow). I could spend all day just at the Flowrider. Best waterpark attraction ever!

The mini golf courses are pretty nice, but nothing special. The arcade is definitely lacking, and even though we only played air hockey (still kids at heart), I noticed practically half the machines were out of order.

So you must be thinking, why waste money at a water park when the beach is literally down the street? Well... to be honest, the beach can get boring. While yes, nothing compares to actually being on the sand and enjoying the waves, sometimes you need a break from it all. While I did spend days during my family reunion... More

Great place to take the family and friends to enjoy a beautiful day in Gulf Shores. Might be a little high in price but worth the money.

We were traveling with a group of teenagers (26) and had made previous arrangements to stop at this water park. The lines were very small and we were able to ride everything several times. The park was much smaller than we expected but the teenagers enjoyed it. The only problem we had with the arrangements we had made were that... More
