We visited on the first Saturday in April, so the park was not quite half full. We also made certain to check for discounts, and took advantage of bringing a case of water for half-off admission for the weekend we visited.
The park was very clean, and once inside, looked bright and up-kept (it looks a little faded from the road - but with AZ's bright sun, you have to expect it!) Line were never more than 20 minutes, and then only for the larger rides (like I said, we visited early in the season.) Lifeguards were very attentive and rotated - vital for keeping people safe. Water was absolutely frigid being early in the season, but as it was 90 degrees the kids took it in stride.
A few hints - we got there 30 minutes before the park opened. When we got in we snagged 3 deck chairs, and simply kept our stuff under one of the chairs (bottles of water, clothes to change into, one car key, nothing else.) We also ate right before we went in, as they are pretty expensive and the food is like what you get in a movie theater - overpriced and not high quality (we had nachos and chorros for a snack.) By saving a locker fee and most beverage costs (the kids each downed two bottles of water) PLUS the admission discount, I felt we got much more than we paid for. Had we paid full price & not been prepared, I would have ranked it a 3 - $38.95 is pretty pricey for what you get. Any discount that gets you in around $30 is very fair:)
