This is a fun place for everyone. The park is very clean and seniors get in for free. The wave pool, slides, children's play area and the picnic area are all kept in great condition. It is a must to visit.

This is a great and affordable destination for families. The younger children will love the 'kiddy' area, while everyone will enjoy lazing in the wave poo. For an adventure there are two rides that use mats that provide chills, spills and lots of water.

The park is fairly clean and a good value. Plenty of fun but can get too crowded on the weekends. Lots of unsupervised kids there but in general pretty well behaved. The concession stand service is slow and the fare is average typical park food....More

Family fun. The first day we went, it rained. So of course we left. But we wanted to see if they would accommodate those who literally just entered and did not get to enjoy anything, because of the weather. They were actually very nice about...More

It's kind of a medium sized water park. Lots of slides to do with a mat, none to do with just your body. They do have a wave pool and a terrifying ride with a huge drop that you do in a tube. That ride...More

If you have a season pass it's no big deal to stop by and hang out for an hour or two. A great way to cool off in the hot Dothan summer!

If you plan on having a party there, then yes. During the summer, it gets pretty busy, calling ahead and getting a table or section for your party is definitely recommended. If you don't, then try to show up early and claim... More

Unfortunately no. But you can still have fun in the pool area. Plus that's a risk to not only yourself, but your baby too.
