Great value if added to an annual pass. Food lines are long and expensive. Not enough food choices. Kids love to go there. The Lazy River Is The best. Take your own chair and umbrella because there is never enough seating. I love the wave pool. Great area for small kids.

While not as fun and exciting as Raging Waters, the experience here was great nonetheless. The kids enjoyed all the different slides from the fast and exhilarating ones. To the slow pace of the lazy river.

This was a blast for my family, the kids went from water ride to water ride. They had such a great time. We really enjoyed the fact we could rent a gazebo to relax and enjoy our food and drink at lunch time. This was one of the best places we went to on this vacation. I highly recommend this... More

I was so excited to go there I was quickly cool down. The lines to go on slides were huge so we decided to see if there were somewhere to swim, a waves pool was there but overcrowded, unable to move. Finally we spent 4 hours sleeping. Not worth the money spent to get in.

Great assortment of water fun from little kids to the big kids. The life guards are abundant and very attentive. They rocked. Great time

We all enjoyed the water park. There was something for everyone. Safe for children. Lazy river was crowded but you would t know it because it kept rolling.

I did not like the lockers they are expensive. I liked that there were no long lines for rides. The food at Mrs. Knott's chicken dinner was fabulous and so were the biscuits.

This was our first major water park with our five and two year olds and we all had a blast. There was so much to see and do and thankfully a place to cool down! Can't wait to visit again hopefully next summer!
