“Not bad if Tube rides worked more than 25% of the time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

The room, decent and roomy but walls thin so screaming child next door is like he's right in the room with you at 2am. The arcade is like a mini gambling training room for kids who put $10 worth of tokens and spin wheels to win tickets that get them 50c worth of junk. The water in the Indoor park was max 65 degrees F and they changed the floating tube for one of the rides. It now has a mechanical lift but takes forever to go down and 3 times during our one night's stay it was shut down for repair. There are two other tube rides but I gues the policy at Great Escape is shut all three even if other two have no business being closed. The mechanically trained staff are straight out of stepford wives minus the cute outfits. They walk back and forth and wave their arms around at nothing. Something like a World War Two Nazi Germany type training military walk. If they work out the kinks and freshen up the place with some paint, it may be worth the price they charge.

Staff was amazing! Every member of the staff was friendly helpful and fun. The room was clean. The lifeguards were very attentive (that hand swipe check they do looks very weird, but they are checking every 10 seconds to make sure no one is under water, explained by Eric). The guards at the surf area were great getting down to show the kids exactly what to do! The meet and greet characters were fun! We did sundaes with Scooby and our kids loved it. The dance party at 4 in the lobby was great, both the characters and MCs kept the kids dancing and laughing! Great place!

We've been meaning to go to this hotel for several years and finally got around to it. The kids, ages 11, 8, and 5 were not disappointed. The indoor water park is perfect for younger children. The water park is big enough to keep the kids happy, yet small enough to find each other easily.
My older children loved the big slides, the tube ride through the darkness, and the other slide that goes outside the building. My youngest enjoyed the splash pad and the lazy river. None of the kids liked the surfing pool. It did look quite rough.
Our hotel room was spacious enough and came with a refrigerator and microwave. The room and bathroom were very clean. Check in isn't until 4 pm so time it carefully if you get to the water park earlier. The following morning was a bit of a rush, a quick hour at the park, then upstairs for showers and out before 11 am or the hotel charges you $150 extra per hour. You could stay longer at the park, but you do need to check out on time.
The chlorine is very strong and two hours is plenty. My older son got a rash from the chlorine and our eyes were stinging a little. They do warn you when you check in.
The service was good and the facilities were clean.
My kids also enjoyed the arcade in the hotel. They seem to be more generous with their tickets than other places.
Our only major complaint was that we found the beds too soft, but for one night, we lived with it. The hair dryer provided nearly burst into flames, we did inform the the front desk, but it was never replaced during our stay. I didn't like the shampoo provided either, but this is a small detail. Our room faced the highway and you do hear the passing cars and trucks.
I think we would go back as a treat for the kids. They had such a good time. Next time I would bring my own shampoo and hair dryer.

Room Tip: Our room faced the highway, I used earplugs to sleep.

We brought our 2 1/2 year old grandson there for an overnight visit. The kids club activities were wonderful. Make your own sundae party and cookies and milk delivery by the characters made our stay exceptional. Great place for children!

We would definitely stay again! The lodge and White Water Bay were fantastic! The room was clean, the water park was a blast for both myself and my 9 year old son! My only regret is that we could only stay one night!

great fun for the family, one stop place to be. only wish it could be more economical so we could return for multiple stays. its comfortable to be able to stay in one location and keep the family busy. look forward to returning when finances allow. RF
