Be sure to look online for deals on tickets. Went on a Monday afternoon and was really surprised how busy it was. Lines weren't too long though. We rode everything 2 or 3 times in 4 hours and spent ample time at the wave pool. There wasn't any tube rides for kids under 48" but the kids zone (Wet Willies?)... More

Sandcastle is fun for a summer afternoon, probably longer if you have kids with you. Save a few bucks by buying your tickets in advance, online. Be prepared to pay to park -- don't do the $12 "preferred", the $6 spots aren't that much further away. Lockers are kind of pricy and small, so don't take more than you need... More

Going on a hot, sunny Saturday in July isn't always the best idea, but you get a chance to really see how well something operates when at full capacity. PARKING: $6 and it's just a short walk. No need to buy the preferred parking. If you're a Costco member, noticed people walking from their lot. ADMISSION: Very disorganized. One line... More

And I've had so many things stolen from there. It's crazy. Someone stole my flip flops from underneath my stroller. Yeah, rent a locker, blah blah blah, but seriously I need my flip flops to get around. I had to go to the gift shop to buy new ones and the cashier said it happens constantly. My other complaint is... More

Fun day in the sun. Be prepared to pay for parking. Got a cabana by wet willys kids splash pool.. Cabana not worth it when there are plenty of seating everywhere. Beware of the geese poop around waster front and lazy river.

I recently visited Sandcastle with my parents and my two sons , ages 14 and 8. First off, if you've never been, you'll notice this isn't a huge park. That's fine with us as we were looking for a day of fun in the water, not a week and my parents weren't up for a long hike to get to... More

It has been a long time since we have been here. The Waterpark is probably ranked in the nation. It always seems to get an enormous crowd. The speed slide is a killer. We would always laugh watching the people turn back and not do the speed slide after waiting in line. We did it many times and got a... More

We stopped at this park today on our way to ohio. With three generations there was something for everyone. The lines were short and the rides were fun. We were able to purchase the vip season pass that includes 2 free buddy passes and 1 extra pass for $10.00. We were able to save over $30.00 on park admission plus... More

Great selection of slides, several pools for younger children and adults to cool off in. A very nice lazy river and multiple places to buy food. If you enjoy water parks, this is well-worth visiting.

We had an amazing time. There are different slides for all ages and there is lots to do. You can sit and watch and enjoy food and drinks too. There is a wave pool which my two children really enjoyed. You do have to pay extra for the bigger slides though which I think should be included in the price.
