Who and when: Me, husband, 17 month old son, 3 1/2 year old son. We went on a Saturday and got there when the park opened at around 10am. We were able to get a shaded picnic table.
Cost: $39/ per person (season pass) for me, hubs and 3 year old. Free for my 17 month old (under two). That is very reasonable in my opinion. Parking is free. The food is all really overpriced- for example a small lollipop in gift shop was $1.75. You are allowed to bring a cooler in with food, water, soft drinks etc. (no alcohol). So, it's easy to avoid the overpriced concessions.
Attraction: It is not a huge water park. For my toddlers, it was sufficient. There is a wadding pool with a couple small slides that I my 17 month old enjoyed. There are 2 somewhat taller slides in kiddie section that are good for my 3 year old. There are larger slides as well for somewhat older kids and adults, but not as numerous as that "other big local water park".
Staff: We had an incident where a child (not ours) climbing over side of a slide and almost fell 10 feet on to the ground. I slid (with my 3 y/o) into this child as I did not know he was climbing up slide wrong way. When I tried to get my son off slide another child slid into me and knocked me and my 3 y/o over. There was NO staff managing the two taller watersides in kids section. We told staff, they were indifferent and brushed us off.
In summary, the season pass is very reasonably priced and parking is free. If you are willing to get there when they open, you can get a shaded picnic spot. You are allowed to bring a cooler with your own refreshments. Pretty good kids section with disinterested staff. Good economical fun for young families. Thrill seekers might prefer other local big water park.
