The lifeguards were awful. I had my disabled brother with me. We were walking to the lazy river and we overheard two lifeguards making fun of my brother! Calling him a retard! The sidewalks were overheated and burned our feets. Overall a major let down!

It'd definitely be a lot more fun if the employees constantly wouldn't make fat jokes or prohibit people from rides. I've gone with my family multiple times and they do not fail to offend a family member of mine or myself. I'm only around 180 pounds but random workers will be all cheery and let you ride it millions of... More

Have been here a few times. For those used to water parks at places like major amusement parks or the like - you'll quickly see some differences: - This is low key; it is through a park district; local people; low key; friendly - Not into the big hype and trying to do a lot of fancy stuff - Water...

A great day for all ages at the waterpark. First - admission of $12 on Tues.-Wed.-Thurs. is a great value. Hours are 10-6 on those days. We love that you can bring a 48qt. cooler with food and drinks. The food to purchase at the waterpark is very reasonably priced if you don't want to bring your own. Teens enjoyed... More

This park is great. All the rides are fun and you can find attractions for any age. We went on most of them. The roller coaster water slide being our favorite. The food stands out as being better than most parks and it is at a reasonable price too. All in all I hope to come back soon.

Fun for kids but not a lot off rides. Go after 4 for half price. Not something to spend the whole day at because it is too small. You can bring in a cooler of food and drinks which is awesome to save money.

First trip to this park, we checked in and they told me that I needed a plastic swimming diaper. I was not prepared other than the Huggies swim diaper I had. It was no problem at all, the staff member handed me a proper plastic diaper and said it was free. I thought that was helpful. The park was super... More

Took my family there this past weekend. Everyone had a blast - there was plenty to do for all the kids (which ranged in age from 5 -15). Nice and clean park , friendly staff. It was nice to be able to bring a cooler into park to save a few bucks on drinks. As our day ended, the kids... More

Price was $12 to get in, due to the fact the wave pool and 2 slide were down. BUT this didnt really make a difference as there were more than enough other slides to keep us and the kids busy. We had fun and will be back. I was very impressed with the life guard staff. These young people ALL... More
