“Fun, well maintained, and no nicking and diming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My family has been here five times over the last six years and we enjoy this park. The rides are well maintained and the staff are very friendly. There are six traditional "lie on your back" slides and two tube-based rides. There's a large splash pool for younger kids and a hot tub for when you get cold. Besides the water slides, there's. climbing wall, carousel, bumper cars, mini golf, and a water balloon fighting area. It would be nice if the water park were a bit more extensive, but it's still ice.

The best things about Big Sky? Waiting in line at the to of the slides is made much more bearable with the warm Montana sun beating down on your shoulders and the beautiful mountains of Glacier National Park gaming your view to the northeast. At the bottom of the slides is a large grassy area with ample shade from large trees. They are absolutely fine with you bringing in your own lunch and food. But note that the food is reasonably priced here: you can get a burger, chips and drink for seven bucks. In fact, that's the thing I most like abut the park: they don't nickel and dime you for things. Everything -- from food to tube rentals to to other rides -- is all fairly priced.

Last tip: you can often get cheaper passes for the park from Kalispell Costco.

“Lovely way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The park has a lot of water slides - regardless of your age/courage you'll be sure to find some that suits you. And there are also a large pool and a fairly large hot tub. Apart from that, the park offers two beach volleyball courts, krazy karts and water-balloon-fun. You could even bring your picnic and cook it on the free grills in the park. Super-friendly staff and very clean surroundings.

“A Fun Summer Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We recently visited this park this summer as we ventured there last year! Such a great place to spend the day when it is hot out! So nice that you can bring your own picnic lunch and they have a grill you can use to cook it!
Krazy cars are fun and my family had a blast and all the water slides were a good time!
Costco in Kalispel has a really great deal on the value pass so I would suggest if you have a membership you should pick them up! The board at Costco says for 48 inches and taller but they work for kids too and save you money than purchasing a regular childs value pass!

“Super fun, super clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

What a great family fun adventure! There are slides and a pool for the whole family. You can bring your own lunch and they even provide the grills! The place is spotlessly clean. Employees are constantly cleaning and picking up even the smallest of garbage. Very family friendly.
