Great time but not enough security and the girls at the front gate are not customer friendly. Not informative at all. They even let some really rude lady cut everyone in line and then let her be the first one in the park. they had 100 people furious at them and they didnt care at all. It was distasteful and...

Wonderful time. Very clean. Lots to do. Good food and friendly staff! Ages of my children 11 and 5. Celebrated my sons 5th birthday and they gave him celebrity treatment!

We visited this park three times this summer. Each time we all had a wonderful visit. There is always something fun to do. Food is pricey and just so so.

The price and the crowds were not unexpected for this type of venue. The pro's: 1) grandparents get in free with the purchase of a child ticket (finally someone has the good sense to realize this will attract more adults!) 2)the kids had a great time. The lines were not unexpected or unreasonably long. The con's: 1)signage warned that credit... More

I bought season passes for my 3 kids and I. We do not go on the weekends as it is overcrowded and there seems to be more alcohol, tattoos and cigarette smoking on Sat-Sun. My kids are always entertained the entire day (1 in elementary school and two teens) while I relax on the beach(I bring my own beach umbrella... More

Disappointing visit for the kiddos, arrived at 9:30 a.m. to get started before the crowd...upon arrival the only open attractions were the mat slides, black hole and two racing slides until well after lunch. No notification that this was the situation when we paid and entered...have visited every summer for several years and never ran into this issue. Bummer for... More

I took my boys for a day of fun and we left satisfied. They have done a great job of updating the waterpark and keeping it clean. I loved the new attractions and the people watching is superb. I do have a warning, you can easily lose your children if you don't watch closely. The park is divided up into... More

They advertise family friendly but it really caters to very drunk rednecks. The staff must be poorly trained as no one seems to be able to help with anything. The LLI magazine talks about world class foods, we have eaten at most of the outlets, including the hotel, nothing is near "world class" and most is not acceptable. We are... More
