The water park only had just enough staff to function, When something went wrong at one ride multiple rides were shut down for other staff to cover. There were no floating staff or adults to be seen working, only teenagers.

Not the best but not the worst either. Rooms are SMALL but clean and food available in the hotel is descent but EXPENSIVE!!! Plan on paying $6 for a 16oz glass of draft beer and $4 for pop. Hot dogs are $3.50 to $4.50 and hamburgers are ~$5. The water park itself is small but ok for kids under 8yrs...... More

Stayed here in January of 2015. We found it to be a bit small as far as the water park went. Our kids (4 and 8) enjoyed it but would not be good for teens. We were upgraded to the suite with the separate room for the kids and it was amazing! We ate at the pizza place on site... More

The original indoor water park place in Sandusky. The place still is really cool but, pales in comparison to Kalahari.

They have tons of life guards - except for 3 (in a 6 night stay), all seem angry all the time, don't smile, don't look at you. They are assigned to a certain post for certain amount of time. I don't know that it helps having that many lifeguards that have to be walking back and forth pretty quickly like... More

First time at a GWL - glad we only stayed one night because the room could have been cleaner - cobwebs in the corner of the ceilings. Felt like we had to always wash our hands after touching something in the room. Waterpark was nice, my son had a good time, smaller than I imagined. Wish we would have stayed... More

Was so excited to spend 3 nights and 4 days that I booked here with my son,dil, and two grandchildren. The whole place needs to be remodeled, especially the hotel rooms. The AC was rattling, beds too soft. The pull out sofa sleeper was noisy and old. The area for babies at the water park section is way too small.... More

Nice waterpark. Kids love it. Nice place to visit in the winter time. Still, at a price comparable to the larger Kalahari, I generally prefer it, but GW is not a disappointment.
