If you want to visit a water park rather than spend your day queuing then this is not the place to visit. We spent most of the day in a queue waiting for other people to hand over their buoyancy rings. This was not great as most people wanted to keep hold of their rings and keep going on the... More

We went a couple of years ago as a family and I rented a cabana which entitled us to a couple of free tubes and hostess service. My son and his daughters and my grandson all had a blast, lots of water time, pizza and the great boysenberry punch they all love. It was so good we went back a... More

Visited for the first time in August with fam. The water park has a lot of slides and a lazy river. However it is so spread, that you have to walk far away from where you are based. The bathrooms and food stands were quite far from where we sat. Our favorite slide was the tornado spin if I remember... More

If it wasn't for the ridiculously long lines, this place would get 5. Otherwise, it's lots of fun for both kids and adults alike. :)

Get here early, as the seats get taken up and then it is not much fun, or reserve a cabana. There can be long lines for the rides/slides on the weekend and on hot days.

Took the grand sons ages 7, 5, and 3 to this water park earlier this summer. They had a blast! Spent a lot of time just splashing around and exploring. Took the oldest over to a couple of the more tame slides and he loved them as well. Stuff to do for all ages in a well controlled environment (... More
