We arrived shortly after it opened on a Sunday. I would recommend purchasing the tickets on line as they are cheaper and it makes the initial check in process go faster. If you arrive before they open, there is a ticket building near the first parking lot where you can trade in your tickets for wrist bands. Otherwise, you can... More

We had a great day at the water park. Small children and adults in our group both enjoyed themselves. Insider Tip: Try to go on a weekday and no matter the day be there when they open. You will have short lines for your first hour. Ride all the popular rides first. The lazy river is great for when the... More

We got to the park early trying to beat everyone, but that did't help at all, we arrived to a lot of people. About halfway into the day almost everyone left, come to find out there was a hydraulic leak in the lazy river, so all rides that fed into the lazy river were shut down. But it was great... More

It's difficult to go do these things with toddlers usually, but not here. With the double tubes made for us to ride together it was so much fun ... we bought season passes! Bring an ice chest and picnic lunch and play all day... Best value for the most family fun! We have children ages fourteen to two and everyone... More

Everyone had a great time. The Lazy River was the bomb. The white water and torrent river was really fun for everyone. Spent most of our time there. The kids went down a few of the big slides. It's a large waterpark that has something for everyone. It was nice to cool off from the 100 degree heat. Would highly... More

Make sure you show up when it opens, bring a lunch and find a covered area along the lazy river to stow your stuff. I can ride the lazy river all day...

This water park has all the rides you could ever want. I think this place is best for teens. My kids are a little too young not to watch all the time and this park is too large for me to keep up with my 3 youngsters. I was constantly trying to find one that got away on the lazy... More

Awesome time. The afternoon pass (saved $12. per person) was enough to go on everything. . less lines as evening approached... but, we could have stayed all day...Lotsa fun). It was great that we could bring our own food and ice chest inside. Clean and safe. We also had a 10 y/o who had a great time & went on... More

Great time at the water park this week. It's pretty expensive so I recommend that you bring your own food and drinks to offset the price of admission. We went on a Wednesday and it wasn't too crowded. They have areas for all ages.
