Nice place to spend a day, my pre teen kids love it. I enjoy the lazy river. It's best to buy a season pass from Costco for a lower price which comes with a free float rental for the whole season otherwise it's $7 per float and $14 parking! You can't bring in any outside food but you can go... More

There are some fun rides here. The floor drop creates big eyes and screams, the 'tornado' is full of laughter and screams. The lazy river is perfect for being lazy. And the elements for younger kids is well designed. Would be a fun place to visit more than once if the service and management was better. We arrived at 10:40... More

Needs more restrooms, more places for tube rental, and more places to get food. The lines are long and slow

Has potential but management obviously doesn't have a clue. Need to get the concessions figured out because its completely inefficient. Probably won't be back.

I get the water is supposed to be refreshing, but geez it is ever so cold. Does cold keep away bacteria? Need more places to sit that aren't charged for.

Several different tunnels to slide down! Then you have to walk back up stairs to get back to the starting place. Not always an easy task on busy days! It is a great place to play during the summer months. We used to back up the kids, some of their friends and drop them off while we went shopping, fun... More

I had a membership that I did not renew for this year. Very crowded, fun for kids but not so much for adults in my opinion. Uncomfortable lounge chairs and water way too cold to get in to.

My kids, 11, 9, and 6 at the time really enjoyed the water slides and features. My 6 year old could not go on very many slides but he loved what he COULD do. I had to let my older two go off on their own, which made me a bit nervous, so I could stick with my younger guy.... More
