We traveled to this area of Florida specifically after hearing about this park... I became obsessed with the mermaid show! It was not a disappointment. Even my husband who was thinking it would be a cheesy show in a tank was pleasantly surprised. It does appear that the park gets VERY crowded on the weekends though. I would advise going... More

This is more a children's water park than anything else. It’s been over 40years since I’ve been here and remember it being more about the Mermaid water show. We paid $13pp to enter which is very reasonable for most attractions around Florida. But this is really only a small scale water park with side shows. There are three (3) attractions... More

Great place to visit with the family of any age. Great water slides and swimming area. For the mermaid lovers they have a show with live performers. The water is refreshing and cool. Will definitely return again.

I remember going here as a kid with my parents. Yes, it can be considered a little hokey but, what the heck. It's a great family experience. The boat ride is great and you get to see a lot of wildlife. The wildlife demonstration with the live gator is very good. We thought the mermaid show was well done. This... More

The mermaid show was interesting but it is pretty obvious that they are using "oxygen wands" to get breaths, I wish they tried harder to camouflage them. Their dance moves also get a little repetitive, I guess there's only so many ways to move underwater. My teenage boys had fun going down the slides and jumping off the floating dock... More

My boyfriend and I are on vacation and decided to stop here because the pictures made it look pretty nice. The water park is alright itself, but the lifeguards are rude and unwilling to help. If you ask one a question, you'll probably get an answer with a tone that says 'wow you're an idiot for asking.' The guests are... More

We couldn't watch the mermaid show.they kept on delaying the show for isolated showers.when we came out there was no rain, thundering, or clouds.we couldn't enjoy the show and they said that they couldn't refund money or give us a stamp to come another day.the ladie was unfair and there were other people against them as well.I don't recommend this...

Our family started our day by renting canoes for the 3 hour river trip which was awesome and peaceful. Then we attended two mermaid shows which my granddaughter and the rest of us loved. Then into our swim suits for about 2 hours of relaxation at the pool, water slide and tubing. This was one of the best values and... More

The springs are beautiful! The boat tour was very nice. Ranger was entertaining. Lots of fish and turtles to be seen underwater so I really suggest to the State Park service to open a snorkeling area even if it meant charging a little more. Brochure says you can snorkel but the three swimming areas are labeled; laps, tubes and swimming.... More
