“Overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

For $20, we got 100 tokens. At Chuck-E-Cheese, 100 tokens would take hours to spend. Here, it took less than 30 minutes. Most games required at least 2. The good games were 4 or more. At the end of the stint, we ended up with about $1.50 worth of candy. The only reason this got an average rating is that the children did have fun blowing the $20...

“Overrated and Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The place is small and often crowded. It cost my family of four nearly $200 for passes to the waterpark (which is lame), lunch, and some tokens. A wave pool, a lazy river, a toddler area and 3 slides is all it consists of. Wait times are often ridiculous and not worth it. For less money, drive 1.5 hrs south to Myrtle where admission is cheaper and you get so much more for money spent. Maybe I am biased, but there is a community waterpark outside of Cleveland, OH that has more to offer and it costs $7 a person to get in. Seriously disappointed-place is a ripoff and kids get bored too quickly

“Not worth the price!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The website is very deceiving! The kids did have a good time and the park was clean, but it was $32.99 per person!!! We spend $264.00. I was shocked. And we only did the waterpark. The kids were done after 2 hours.

“Really fun, but use caution”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Jungle rapids is awesome, decent food,great rock wall, tons of games, a decent laser tag arena, go carts, a drop tower and a water park(never been in it)
BUT
at the time my family and I went (we went four times during our vacation) the game machines kept running out of tickets and/or not working.
ALSO BE CAREFUL
use caution when getting prizes. we had saved enough tickets to get a football, jungle rapids inflated it and we left. On our drive back to Topsail Island the ball EXPLODED in the car,it could have caused an accident or had a child been holding the ball they could have been seriously injured. We called and complained, they said there was nothing they could do and that they had no number for a corporate office.

“go carts are fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We go here once a summer when in town for vacation. They have one and two person carts. It's a little pricey - $8.99 for one ride, or $16 for two. At least they don't charge for a passenger in the two-person carts. We take our kids and they love it. You must be 12 to drive your own cart. Shoulder length hair must be in a pony tail, but the operators usually have rubber bands to offer. You must be a licensed driver to take a passenger with you.

There is a water park - the go all day price of $39.99 includes choice of two of the other activities (go carts, mini golf and one other) and seems like a pretty good deal. we've never done the water park, but it looks like fun.

We have done the mini golf - it was decent when we did it a few years ago.
