You only want to go in first few weeks they open. The water is clean and beautiful. After that it stinks. Food prices are very high and drinks are even higher. I watched from opening to close the people who use the rest rooms and oh my word well one yuck when and where to they pee? The water in... More

The water park is always fun! Prices are a little high so if you get a coupon use it! leave the cooler with food and drinks in the car. You can come and go when you please. The prices are pretty steep for a family park ( but hey they need to make money too) The lines are very long... More

My kid had a great time here. We got to the park when it opened, so the lines were short for about an hour. After that, it's nearly as bad as Disney. We tried to go to the cafe and grab a snack, but we asked some people and they said they had been waiting for almost an hour to... More

Had a great day at the waterpark. My only complaint would be that the locker rentals are super expensive. Being that there are not a lot of places in the area to buy any possible forgotten items the waterpark should sell any items you might need like sunblock or rashguards. It would be nicer if there were easier and healthier... More

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
