This is a great place for young children. Their are plenty of rides for just about all ages. We had a 20-month old and there was more than enough to keep her busy. The water slides and water play areas were nice to beat the heat. There were two things that kind of annoyed us, the $10.00 charge for VIP... More

This park is not for adults. It is for young kids. I went with my friend who had a daughter and I still had fun anyway. Could not go on many rides but to see the kids having fun made me smile.

Loved it all but you definitely need to spend more than one day in order to experience all that is offered.

The riders are great for kids 2 and up. The sprinkler area is fun for kids. I don't agree that admission to park should be the same for adults and kids. More then 90% of the rides are only for the kids.

It's not big.. it's not new.. but it's just big enough and busy enough for toddlers. My family with 6 yr old and my neighbor's 8 yr old had a blast... It's not cheap as there are no children pricing... you all pay the same price but it is not like Six Flags or Hershey Park where walking just to... More

The advance online price for tickets was very reasonable, and parking was free. There was plenty to do for people of all ages; however, this park is geared more for families and not for scares (which is a great thing if you are bringing children with you). We were not there long enough to ride or experience everything, but we... More
