I took my boys (12 and 8) and we had a blast. Even though it was very crowded the lines still moved quickly and we all had a great time. The staff was friendly and pleasant. The only negative is that Parking was a little hectic with the crowds. Overall, a real value and a lot of fun.

Lot's of fun for the family!! Would give it a 5 but there were 1 or 2 slids that could have had a bit more water flowing.

Enjoyed several visits to Shipwreck with grandchildren. Find the park VERY clean and all staff/employees VERY FRIENDLY. Certainly is a family place. We grandparents can sit and are sure of the safety of the children as they ride and run about. The price is great; especially if you have 4 grandchildren who want to buy everything. Adult children enjoy all... More

This is overall a nice water park. The staff that we spoke with were friendly. They had the usual slides, wave pool, lazy river, etc. I would have given it a better rating but it was expensive for the size park that it is - even with the discount coupons from Walmart. We visited towards the end of their season... More

Positives: We were able to find discount coupons at Walmart that saved us $5 a person(good deal). We paid $126 for a family of four. Not to bad for what could have been a six hour day of fun for the kids. The food was moderately priced(affordable) and tasted as we expected. Not bad but average. The park was clean... More

There could be more rides and the admission could be less expensive. I mean, for the amount of rides you have you seriously think $100+ for us three to get in is worth it? What are your rides made out of, gold? The staff is rude and the water is disgusting. The only reason this got 3 stars is because... More

That is a very disappointing review, and somewhat confusing. You said the reason you gave us three stars was because your kids had fun. We take that as a pretty serious compliment, since were in the business of making sure families have fun. As for our water being disgusting, I sincerely beg to differ with you. We have the most...

I enjoyed our day here with my 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son. It was about $95 for all three of us plus lunch. We arrive at 10:30am and stayed until close, 4:30pm. They both said it was the best part of our two week vacation. We even considered going back from another day, but ran out... More
