Spent all day there. Not to bad crowded. Kids had a blast. We brought our own lunch ate at picnic area outside the gates. It was good place to wear the kids out so they would sleep well that night.

My first time there. Was fairly inexpensive and had a good time early in the morning. By lunch time, it fills up quickly, and is very crowded. The rides were nice.

I was extremely concerned there are only 4 stalls/ 5 toilets for female restrooms in this large crowded water park. I really didn't want to spend much time in the lazy river after seeing that. My kids thought the water slides were just okay.

It's a nice water park just pretty small. It's better for young children. There's alot of stuff for the younger ones

I am sorry but I could not answer that question as we were visiting from out of state. I will say that the day we were there we saw at least 4 school buses but it did not impact our stay negatively in any way.
