This park does not have the huge variety of Kalahari, nor does it have lots of loud screaming slides going around at all times. What it does have is a temperate atmosphere, as neither the air or water are kept at 90 degrees, several fun rides and a relaxing atmosphere. A lazy river would be perfect, but while other parks...

We have been here many times. My girl's call it the Charlie Brown place. The water park is great and the dance party with the characters and bed time story with Snoopy is also great for the kids. We also did the crafts in the day time with a break from the water. I checked the room and it was... More

Sandusky is full of indoor water parks (as well as some claiming to be that are just a water slide and a pool). Castaway Bay, however, stands out as being the best value for your money. I've been to Great Wolf Lodge, Kalahari, and Castaway Bay and Castaway Bay is the least expensive while still providing very nice accommodations, even... More

This place was super affordable for my family size. We had fun with multiple things to do all day. They make the admission fee worth every penny! Can't wait until spring break!

We've been here a bunch of times over the years. My kids are 11, 9, and 7. We all ways have a great time. The indoor/outdoor giant hot tub that seats about 75 people is amazing. We came during a snow storm that put about a foot of snow on the ground and it was an awesome experience being in... More

Was in town for the Santa Hustle along with 1500 other runners and their families. When I checked in I asked about the late check out I was told no problem because timing of the race they were planning for a lot of people to be checking out later and they were going to note it on our room. Next... More

This was a terrible experience. The staff was terrible. Rude and very unhelpful. Everything is over priced on top of it. We stayed there 5 nights and they never once cleaned our room even though we repeatedly asked them too. Never refilled our toilet paper. We had to go down to the front desk on a few occasions to have... More

We have been to castaway bay many times, we actually LOVE the water park! We went a little under 2 wks ago and as we were leaving my boys went in the bathroom and were changing, the bathroom stall door fell on my 7 year old. I made an incident report and tried contracting them after. Nothing was done about... More
