Kids enjoyed the rides but the walking and waiting left us all exhausted and wiped out. There's nothing to keep you occupied or interested in the park. Won't go back.

MUST GET THE FAST PASS! The rides don't open until 10:30, but by 12 we were in need of the fast pass and so grateful that we got it, because our longest wait for any ride was 15 min, not the 1.5 hours others had. Enjoy it and wear good shoes for walking! Some of the rides were closed and... More

Very nice, lots of rides for all ages. Sad to see Roar go but at least we were there for the last day of rides. The park was clean and the lines were not crazy long. Only drawback is the parking is very far from the park but at least they have a shuttle. I would go again if I... More

I got a discount buy buying my tickets online early, it was a great deal for the price. 215 for two which included silver flash pass, admission to the park, and a refillable souvenir cup. The only complaint I have was that the superman was not included in the silver flash pass you either had too pay an additional twenty... More

The rides were fun and close to each other, the animals and the animal shows were great. We enjoyed them all. The food and drinks were quite pricey. The free shuttle bus to and from the parking was a good treat. It was a pleasant family experience.

To begin with I can't make any comment on the park in general as we visited on a park closed day simply for the Dolphin Encounter programme. The Dolphin Encounter was a gift to our 12 year old daughter who had been asking to do this for years. As we live in England there's no a lot of opportunity! We... More

I got my tickets online and had a discount from my Credit Unions code. It was worth the price because I enjoyed my time and so did my daughters and their best friends.

We love going to this park. There are a variety of rides for different levels of thrill seekers. I would suggest buying a season pass for the whole family because it is well worth it. It will pay for itself if you go twice a year. Also, make sure you buy the great drink bottle for $20.00. Free refills for... More

We were there with our 9, 6 and 3 year old children from 11am to 6pm on a Saturday in August. Three rides in total. We queued the rest of the time. Seeing my nine year old's face about to jump on the Superman ride after 90 minutes was a highlight, but overall not worth it, especially if you add... More

Animals are always nice to see. They have a baby animal nursery so you can see the little ones. The white tigers are really cool to watch. You can get really close to the giraffes. Kiddie rides are fun for the little ones and the coasters for the bigger ones.mcant beat the season pass prices. As far as food goes,... More
