Long lines extremely warm outside. Park stays open later in the evening so you can enjoy dive in movies and other activities. Search the web for discount tickets or season passes.

I love water slides. I am about 50 years old., Still a kid a heart. My son (23) and I went on vacation. He wanted to go to the park. I had no idea how much fun we were going to have. I recommend getting a locker to put your valuables in. We thought they supplied towels so we didn't... More

I went at the end of the season, so the lines weren't too long, except for some of the bigger water slides. Flip flops or sandals are a good idea because the ground was very hot. Some of the slides are really fun and there is also a kids area with a playground and smaller slides.

As others have mentioned, the lines were long, many of the attractions were broken down and the food was gross and expensive. The price for a daily ticket is costly, but the season pass was reasonable at $50/person. My kids did enjoy the many splashpad areas and there were several small slides for kids over 42 inches. Several of them... More

Good day out, unlike other parks we've been to all the rides require you to go down on tubes which was a small disappointment but still fun. Take water bottles as there are fill up points and plan to be in the sun at times whilst queueing

I took my 8yr old here on a Sunday, yes it was busy but nothing horrendous! There are several large rides which attract the bigger queues, but it's quite obvious that your not going to be able to get off a ride & immediately back on. The express system appeared to work well, but I didn't have it & yet... More

We live near this attraction, and have been there a few times. This year we just stopped going. It is so crowded, many lines are up to an hour wait and there is virtually no shade to stand in while you wait. The pools are dirty. Older kids run around like crazy people, and the food is just average.

Our boys, ages 9 and 11, have been begging to go for a year, so we did. I had read all the reviews complaining about the lines and went with expectations of waiting around. These reviews don't do it justice. We were at the park from 11:30 to 5:30 and bought the X press Bands for shorter wait times. We... More

Lines were WAY too long, arrived at 1030AM, stayed til 430PM - rode a total of 7 slides due to long wait times. Only took a break to eat a quick lunch. The bracelets which allow folks who pay more on an already over priced ticket to cut in front caused major delays as well. Some slides were not functioning... More

I am very disappointed in this place. We bought season passes 2 years ago and was really pleased. This year...not so much. It was very dirty, very unorganized and the staff is incredibly rude. The lines are ridiculous. Waiting in the Arizona sun for an hour plus to ride a 10 second slide? They're lucky people aren't passing out (or... More
