We really enjoyed it but one thing you should go early like when they first open because they get crowded really fast some advice is that you don't have to buy a tube for anything because for all the tube slides one will be provided to you for free and in the lazy river they have tubes there to but...

The park itself is not very large. There are only about nine attractions, lazy river, and wave pool. There is a nice children's area and an area designated for very small children and toddlers. The day we were there there was an abundance of chairs from which to choose. We liked that you could take your own cooler inside the... More

Long lines for everything. Overpriced food of blah quality. The rides are fun, if you can stand to wait for them.

They have food and drink options in the park or you can pack a lunch and have a picnic. We will definitely be going again this... More

We enjoy everything about the place! Love how you can take coolers in and just spend a relaxing day there and not really worry about the older kids running free!

I went to the Magic Waters water park with my extended family. It was 20 of us in total, so as it is expected we are always very careful in planning what we want to do since we don't often have the opportunity to get all together as a family. We decided to make reservations way in advance and later... More

Magic Waters is a great place to take kids in the summer. Tons of slides for all ages. There is a huge wave pool and lazy river.
