My first time and I brought my 22 month old, 4 year old, and 6 year old. My 6 year old was able to access all areas of the waterpark. My 4 year old (who is still learning to swim) was able to access 80 to 85% of the park. Regardless, there was something to do for all my kids... More

I took my 3.5 year old son here today and we had a good time. We arrived around 10:15am, and despite it opening at 10am, there was already a huge line to get in. If you want to go on a weekend, I recommend getting there around 9:30 or 9:45am so that you can make sure you are one of... More

I took my 3 1/2 year old grandson here on a day when the thermometer was supposed to hit 95 degrees. We got there just after opening and easily found a lounge chair that was under some large umbrellas. We brought a large cooler of snacks and drinks which was checked before we were allowed to enter. Glass and liquor... More

I don't know how they bob their heads up and down all day but it's pretty funny! They are the best lifeguards! Kids are safe for sure!! They break every hour for 10 min but it's not that bad because it gets your kids out without a fight and then you can have them use the bathroom or eat. You... More

Used a Groupon to spend the day at the Water Mine. Wasn't crowded. The kids, 5 and 3, had a great time in the lazy river, on the slides and on the objects (snake, beaver, horse, log, raft etc.) in the pool. The changing rooms are clean, but lockers would be nice for secure storage. You can take food into... More

We took our grandchildren here (ages three and five) and they had great fun in a very safe, clean and friendly environment. They greatly enjoyed the lazy river, the slide Big Pete, and all the water creatures to climb on. From our point of view, the fact that there were so many vigilant life guards meant that we could relax... More

We have been to the Water Mine a couple of times and the kids love it! It is best for younger kids, probably 4-10 is the best age range. The water is gradually deep, starting at a few inches for the toddlers, and goes to about 3 1/2 feet deep. There are no lap pools, etc. as the entire area... More

This pool is like a small amusement or water park. My kids couldn't get enough of this place when they were younger; they loved the water slides and the buckets. Now that they're teenagers, they can spend endless hours in the lazy river. There is food on the premises, however you can bring your own food and eat in the... More

It can get a bit crowded, but it is a great place to take the kids during the summer. It is fun for most ages of young kids. Try to get there early on busy days to get a good spot at the side of the pool.

This place is really for kids. There is no place for adults to swim. There is a tubing river, slides, ropes, jumping on objects in the water, kiddie pool, essentially for all levels of kids - young and old! There is food (pizza, hot dogs, fries, ice cream) available for purchase. It is more fun to bring your own picnic!
