The area is good if you have small children to play and take the rides - there seem to be fees for everything except the lookout.

Special if weather is not goog enough for swimming it is worth to climb up and have nice panoramic overview over lake Balaton, vulkanoe area in North (Badacsony - Tapolca,...) and quite flat surrounding in South.
