I took the family here in July for a summer vacation. The indoor water park was great! The kids loved riding the slides and rides. The lifeguards are trained well, and are very diligent in their responsibilities. The room we stayed in was clean, but the bathroom was a little small. We didn't spend much time in the room anyway,... More

This hotel is a great atmosphere for kids. We stayed for a quick trip and wanted to stay here for the water park for our 4 year old. The water park is great. There are a ton of things to do for kids if all ages. Some kids tend to get rowdy around the center area with the bucket dump.... More

It is a nice place to go and visit once but to stay for another night is a bit too much. Pros: 1. Spacious room (we stayed in Luxury King), this hotel caters for family of all ages so expect to see run down areas 2. Well kept and decent sized water park that caters to all ages. 4. Friendly... More

Let me start by saying that this was not a bad place to come. However, I feel that there was a lot of hype. If you've been to any of the Disney parks, don't think this is comparable. It is no Disney...which I didn't think it would be. Decided to take my 10 year old nephew for one night here... More

Water park was fun the howlin tornado was awesome even for an adult!... More

In the off Season this place is half price and well worth the money. I can't say I would feel the same if I went in Season, or on Holidays. This was just a great place to go in the middle of Winter. The Cabin theme, the decorations, and seeing your kids have a great time after being stuck in... More

Kids loved it, was not so great for us parents. They were clearly busy that week, and so many things went wrong from start to end that I do not even know where to start, but basically...we will visit again, probably in PA next time to please the kids. A million extra costs, which is fine if they are disclosed,... More

Okay, so I understand the "keep you in and get your money principle", but this place is over-rated and overpriced. So I will start with the negatives: -Overpriced -Limited healthy or quality or variety food choices. Plenty of sugar. If you do stay, try the grill across the parking lot. -Not as clean as you would think. There were actually... More

We went for the Grand Illumination in December. We were able to enjoy indoor water sports. The activities are geared toward young children but our teenagers enjoyed the water park and the video arcade. There are two restaurants inside and a jungle themed restaurant in the parking lot. This is very convenient and hassle free. The room rate will make... More

Our daughter had a stellar time! We stayed 2 nights and our room came to over $600 for those nights. The room was the equivalent of a low in holiday inn. The shower was terribly moldy, both security locks on the door were broken. The pillows were so overly used that they were knotty. The beds were so slept in... More
