Great Idea for to take young children they can ride anything at 42"... BUT keep in mind this park is geared towards younger children, so with that in mind when we had bad weather Sunday August 17 and lightening showing no signs of clearing up they kept a lot of families with small children hunkered under small shelters. They refused... More

We visited Gulf Islands on Wednesday before school started back. It was more crowded than expected (maybe because it was the last day for members to use their 'bring a friend for free' coupons.) It was still an enjoyable experience for all 11 of us. We paid $25 per person and thought it was worth it. (Found $5 off coupons... More

I visited Gulf Islands on a recent trip to New Orleans to visit family. Overall, we had a good time. Unlike other complaints that this park is too small, I don’t mind that at all. There was just enough to keep us entertained. Luckily, my other family members, who had season passes, had a coupon for entrance so the entry... More

The prices are kind of high for such a small water park. We had to pay the adult price for our 4 year old just because he reached the height requirement to do the big slides....even though he would NEVER do them! There is plenty for young children to do. Our 2 year old had a blast in the play... More

We went on a Saturday, arriving at noon, only to find a totally packed park. Out of the hundreds of lounge chairs, maybe 1 out of 20 had an actual person in them. The rest were "reserved" with towels, bags and shoes. I finally found a single chair, and our family of 4 had to share it. In the near... More

We will not ever return to this Waterpark. The pricing was ridiculous. We had to pay full pricing even for the kids. Junior pricing was for 3year old kids and younger basically (had to be smaller than 42 inches). The lines were ridiculously long. The lazy river was jam packed. There were not enough tubes for the number of people... More

Have been several times and each time was equally disappointing. Too crowded, not enough tubes, tried several times to get a tube on the lazy river and there were never any available. The lines for the water slides are ridiculous and the employees don't enforce the rules. It doesn't seem to matter what day or time of week you go... More

Went to the waterpark July 4th weekend while visiting son based at Keesler AFB. The park is very small. There are only about 5 water slides for adults/older kids. There was a little bit of a wait for a few of the slides but nothing extremely long. We enjoyed the racing slide the best as well as the Camille Cutter.... More

By our standards this is a small water park, I am not complaining though. First, the girl took my $8.00 coupon off for me and my husband, then she looked around for another coupon for my 2 girls and got me another $6.00 off for each of them. I was amazed at her professionalism and how she actually took a... More
