“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We love this waterpark! While we like to enjoy the water and rides we aren't extremely adventurous and don't like to deal with places that are overly crowded, so this place is right up our alley. We liked it when it was alot smaller, but now that it has the lazy river and wave pool it is even better. My son who was five when we went last summer really enjoyed Tiki Island. It was shallow, but deep enough that he can still wade around and there are plenty of lounge chairs around for mom. They offer free soft drinks and sunscreen which is a plus. One improvement on the soft drinks is I think they either need more stations for drinks or self serve. The lines for the drinks were really long. They also have small lockers for rent which are great for when it is time for the rides. The rides are mostly more like carnival/fair rides, but they are great for young children. They also have free putt putt available. The park is extremely clean and everyone was very friendly. We will be back again this summer.

“Nice park if you don't expect too much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

I've been to Beech Bend four times as a chaperone for 8th graders, and the students have always really enjoyed the park. However, this year three of the rides were not operating. That doesn't sound so bad until you consider the fact that there are probably not ten rides that teens can ride at the small amusement park. The rides are not great unless you like carnival rides. Perhaps there were problems because we were there on the opening day of the season, but surely they would have had a trial run to make sure things are operating before opening day. Another thing I noticed this year that I haven't before--there was a musty smell in the gift shop at the Kentucky Rumbler, and the camera that takes photos on the Kentucky Rumbler was not working. That disappointed our group, too.
The park has always been very clean, the staff friendly, and we enjoy the free soft drinks. Another plus--no waiting in line. I suppose I'm disappointed because I remember how nice the rides were at Opryland, but it was also very crowded.
