I'm amused by the folks who leave negative reviews because they can't climb stairs. There's another water park for you, I guess. This is a fun place. It's independently run and I can't speak for the golf component but our family can spend the better...More

Disguisting place full of coachroaches and smells like urine. It was so dirty and the water was so smelly. Worst old park ever

After reading all the reviews, I pretty much knew what we were in for. The park is very compact which means lots of stairs and bridges and walking uphill, so if you have someone that has trouble walking, this is a no go. Also, we...More

Great fun for the whole family. Lay-out is great -- has shaded areas, different activities for all age groups. Lots of very alert life guards. Friendly, helpful staff. Buy tickets a few days in advance on-line to save money. The bathrooms were disgusting -- dirty...More

This is for the miniature golf portion of the park. I haven’t been to the water portion. I chose this place cause of the big shipwreck out front. I mean how could a shipwreck tiki theme not make for fun mini golf? It didn’t. First...More

Yes, it is a small beachside waterpark and not Disney or Kalahari's - I get that... but, this place is poorly managed. They sell you the $30 popcorn and drink refill then only one popcorn maker works in the whole joint? I have been here...More

Too much walking. Rides are ok but it’s up the stairs-down the stairs all day. The kids thought it was great though, they didn’t mind the walking.
