Fun afternoon on the lagoon; however, we were pressured into booking for 2 hours by the sales staff. Also, when we changed our minds about renting tandem kayaks instead of paddle boards, they wouldn't issue a refund. We paid for 4 toys when we only used 3...and they just said, "too bad." It was only $50, but it jjust put... More

After a day with my 5 year old at Legoland, I wanted to have some fun of my own and sent an email asking if they offer wakesurfing. Where I'm from, most speedboat ops cater to wakeboarders and don't have the equipment or boat technique for wakesurfers. I got a quick reply from Josh that they had Nautique, Master Craft... More

we used the layal and the paddleboards, other were jetskiing. Lots of fun, easy to paddle board because the water is very flat. Fairly inexpensive and good for kids
