We only went to eh "Action Park". This park is definitely in need of an update. Mini Golf was bad, with most of the courses looking well worn. Areas where water should be were either drained, or filled with brown water. At one point there where teens playing on the course (wearing staff shirts) and could be heard cursing while... More

I live in Springfield and take my son here a couple times a summer, mainly only on Mondays when moms are free. The price is astronomical- I think it's right around $30/person over a certain age/height. I wouldn't mind paying it if the place were worth it, but frankly, it just isn't. It's just run down. The bathrooms smell so... More

...Manipulated. We could not find accurate prices on the website...primarily pertaining to military discounts as we were told they offered one. I made a phone call and was told on Thursday's military paid the children's admission price. It happened to be Thursday. As I tried to find the child's admission price online, I could not...so I called back...a second person... More

Head to the drive in to find out why these theaters were once so popular. Enjoy a double feature from the comfort of your car or bring your lawn chairs and sit outside. Cost of admittance for two shows is less than you'll pay at the indoor multiplex. If you've never been, you don't know what you're missing.

Larger then expected. Water park was the only area we went too. Decent size but not overwhelming. We were there for 5 hours and did everything at least twice. Three kiddie areas w 11 kiddie slides. ( pirate boat, submarine, sea lion cove) Lazy river with small waves. Wave pool, 8 big slides, paddle boats, bumper boats. Bathrooms need updating... More

Went there for a quck afternoon of go-karts. This place has a lot of high school kids running around doing various jobs. The go karts weren't busy but the few times the rowdy kids were on to bump whoever got in their way or even ram you on your way back to pits was not stopped by the kids working.... More

I live 45 minutes away so this is the closest park of its kind to me and it never gets old. I personally love the drive inn that's next door but is considered part of knights better than anything else. it's something I've done since I was a child and will definitely continue doing

This place was poorly ran and a bit run down. Save your money and go to a movie or something. Not enough staff there to even run everything.

Most of the reviews are rather harsh sayings it's not worth the money. I would just like to point out that the price might be a little hefty but overall its the best place to go for some family fun in Springfield. You can't expect too much when there is nothing to do anyways. We decided to check it out... More

This is an ok place to go, but not worth the price. We won tickets and decided to check it out. I had seen tv commercials for the place in the past but had never geen there as it is almost 2 hours from where we live. It seemed pretty clean and there are a lot of different water activities,... More
