“NOT BAD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have an 8 yr old barely learning to swim on her own and 6 yr old whom cant swim at all
First of all the wave pool is super dangerous for a little one to be alone a child has no idea how to judge the height or current of the waves and they can easily drown.
The kids area in my opinion needs to be a bit more secluded from the deeper section and wave pool if u have a child less than 5 ft who can't swim they can easily misjudge the depth of water and be in a world of trouble. Especially the wave pool.
I want to say that the staff seem very alert at all times throughout the entire park which seemed very pleasing although makes me wonder how many accidents they have had because the staff were super alert while the wave pool went into action.
the tube slides were amazing and don't need to be able to swim to ride. Be prepared for lots of exercise
The two flume slides were okay but the water is to deep and your child must be able to swim or stand 5 in half feet tall to be safe.
I don't want to discourage any parents but if you are a parent like me and your child cant swim good than make sure your child is accompanied by an RESPONSIBLE person because this swimming trip can become tragical before you know it..

“Fun times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Great value for a water park. At $8 for adults you can't beat the price. Did not use the lockerrooms, but had a blast on the slides and lazy river. Plenty of chairs. Overall, a fun afternoon!

“Best value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

Enough to keep our 6 & 11 yr old entertained all day. Plus we all got in for $24. You can't get that at 6 Flags!
