This park was fun but dated, they need updating and need to redo most bathrooms. Probably wont go back for several years.

This could be a great park,but the crowds that frequent it tell a different story. Unruly, loud, dirty - unfortunate words that I have to use to describe our experiences there in recent years, and it just keeps getting worse. Children in the water park...More

No question that Steel Force is the best roller coaster at this park. Other great rides are Thunderhawk, Whitewater Landing (you'll get wet) and Thunder creek mountain (you'll get wet). I wasn't a fan of Hydra or Talon roller coasters since they made me dizzy...More

Went to the park for company picnic. Plenty of rides for everyone. We went On Sept 1st and they had dollar days. Lots of eats were only a dollar. Went through the dino exhibit for a dollar, what a treat.
