In fairness my nieces and nephew love this place. Me, not so much. For just kids swimming it would be great but my younger niece is 4 which requires that she be supervised at all times. The pool at the end of the slides is too shallow for the speed of the slides if you are tall. The last (and... More

I apologize for the poor experience you had at our park. This is the first time we have heard of such an incident as yours and it brings up safety awareness for us to manage. The state law restricts under 6 year olds from using public hot tubs as they do not usually have enough body fat to keep them... More

We visited this park before we went to determine if it was worth it. It is quite large and has lots to do. They run a feature on some nights to swim from 5pm to 7pm for $5. We felt this was a great value. We arrived and then they dropped a $5 per person fee for watching our kids.... More

Thank you for your comments, it saddens me that you were not satisfied with our facility. Water is noisy and we do need a warning system prior to dumping a large bucket of water on people. So those are not changeable issues. Your comment is that" it could be better", we would love to entertain your suggestions of what would... More

This was great for the kids but no fun at all for the adults. I could't wait to get out of here. Hot, sticky, uncomfy chairs and just cheap... although it really was not a cheap day at all. The hotel was over priced, the water park was top dollar. And that's a shame because everyone wants to get some... More

It is unfortunate that you were uncomforatable at the waterpark, the environment is adjusted for swim suits, wearing street clothes will make a person very warm in this environment. Your hotel was priced to include the waterpark which we have found is favorable for most of our guests. We are pleased that your children found the facilities exciting. Thank you... More

Thought we would stay two nights so our kids could enjoy 1 full day at the waterpark. Found the place overcrowed because of a camp that was visiting for the day. Hardly any entertubes for the slide. In fact i counted only 6 doubles and maybe 15 single tubes. Was told by a lifeguard that the single tubes are for... More

I apologize if you felt that one club of children was overcrowding for you, with a line for the slides and the sharing of tubes. We hope that all children will behave well in this envirnment and it is unfortunate when they do not hit that mark. We take comments from our guest seriously and I thank you for your... More

With a family of 8 including kids age 4 and 7 travelling from Rapid City to Missoula , we decided to break our trip up by staying the night in Billings.

This place is great for the kids but not so great for people with sinus issues. The lack of air exchanges in this area will wreak havoc on your sinuses.

Thank you for your comments, I understand the high humidity in the park can be hard on sinus issues and I apologize for that. I hope you will return when you sinus issue has been resolved. We look forward to seeing you again. More

We recently took a quick trip to Billings to shop for an RV and while there, we needed something fun to do with our young daughter. We stumbled upon The Reef and were thrilled that they had early Sunday morning hours so we could play before we headed home. We all had a good time with minimal crowd, pleasant atmosphere,... More

Brought 5 kids to the Reef. Had a blast and would go again. I found that the staff did not know if their is a policy regarding outfits with drug references. I felt that overall the staff and park was great and we all had a lot of fun.

I took my kids to this water park. It was our first time there and I've got to say we will be heading back. It was a blast. I like the fact that everything you need is there at the park. Had a great time. Definitely recommend going.

Firstly, this place is affordable and fun. Our kids have a blast. We usually stay at the connecting hotel and the hotel staff are super supportive and understanding of families with kids running around. We live 2 hours away and we make it there 2-3 times a year. The lifeguards are my biggest issue and the reason I do not... More

First, I am pleased that your stay at the Big Horn Resort was a good one and that you will be returning. Second I have passed on your comment to the management of the waterpark to address the issues you have brought up and I apologize that you felt the lifeguards were not approachable.
