Our family (4 of us) made a visit to the park on a Saturday in August 2013 so we anticipated large crowds, what we experienced was unbelievable. The crowds were over the top; there was obviously no occupancy control on the part of the operator to provide for guest seating, and something less than elbow-to-elbow conditions along walkways.
There was absolutely no availability to seating, benches, chairs or chases - unless you want to rent a $-cabana-$. The waits for a ride on the big slides was 1:40, yes that's right, 1 hour and 40 minutes! When a park allows so many people in that you can't easily move around or have to wait that long to enjoy a ride, there is something wrong.
My 10-year-olds were frustrated by the long waits and essentially gave up after the first ride and chose to use the wave pool most of the day. For the price of admission a day at the wave pool is robbery. The policy for the key return is suspect at best; $5 return fee by a specific time or zero refund, no exceptions. Interesting though that the main clock by the wave pool is 1 hour off – conspiracy?
From the reviews I know many others love it, don't mind the insufferable waits, and feel it’s a good value - I just hope this review helps those on the fence who may find a better way to spend a family day for the money! I know I will never be back.
