“Fun for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This venue is set up really well for kids. The Lodge was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The Kids Cabins in the rooms are a hit. The water park is large enough to provide a variety of experiences, but small enough that older elementary aged kids can explore on their own. A drawback is the food which is marginal. The price for food would be fair if only it tasted better. The wait in the restaurant for food to arrive was very long. An employee in the water park complained that she was very tired and she stated that the pizza sold there was terrible. That was a true statement, but an employee probably shouldn't voice that. Our kids want to return to experience more of the events and activities.

“Lots and lots of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

It was 32 degrees outside and completely great to be running around in swimsuits inside at 84 degrees. Fun water slides and huge play area for the kids!

“Love the hotel, love the waterpark. Some of the staff needs some work.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The hotel is wonderful. It is great for the kids, fun, and cute, and the waterpark is set up perfectly. It is large enough that even on busy days there is plenty of room and the lines move quickly. The waterpark staff is for the most part friendly and helpful. The average rating comes from a couple major flaws;The food inside the waterpark was 80$ for 4 people to eat and it was hardly edible. If you can, avoid eating there, I suggest going to the pizza place or anywhere else. Although the girls in the arts and crafts room are very friendly and sweet and really seem to enjoy kids and their job, the rest of the hotel staff was rude 7 times out of 10. The Loose Moose staff the first time we went was extemly rude and didnt seem to want to be bothered. The second time the sever was great and I wish we had gotten his name. We got a cabana and had a problem and when we went to the front desk the clerk actually told me, "Well sorry but I dont know what I can do for you." I wasnt asking for money back or anything I was just trying to explain what the situation was. We have gone back and we will go back again becuase my daughter just absolutely loves it. We get the KidKabin and it is set up like her own little cabin with a tv and and she loves it. I just wish the staff there could get a lesson in customer service especially considering the price tag that comes along with this particular experience. Overall I would suggest it becuase it is a wonderful hotel and the waterpark is so much fun, and there is more good experiences then bad even with the unwelcoming and rude staffers.

“great family vacation spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

this place is great. the indoor water park is suitable for all ages; and the onsite events and activities for kids are highly entertaining - story time, magic shows, build a stuffed animal, scavenger hunt, salon/boutique, ice cream parlor, arts/crafts center. all of it was perfect to keep the kids happy and busy. the only improvement needed is the very expensive food - both the buffet and sit down restaurant. very pricey for ok, so so tasting food. the room we stayed it was a "cabin" style that the kids really liked.

“Our Spring trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

WOW, what an enterprise. We stayed at Easter time. The kids had a blast. We did it all this trip. We ate (not bad prices considering you are there and kind of trapped. The kids did the spa package. We also completed the quests, the pillow case deorating. We certainly enjoyed the water park. It was a bit chilly the one day outside, the next day major rain moved through the area so the inside park was great.
