The Wal-Martian Waterpark

The cast of characters here reminds me of a carnival. I'd not return, no matter the price, as the facility is gross, and some have become sick after visiting. No thanks.

Water Park was closed end of last year by Board of Health and Safety! They have not made mandatory corrections apparently, as nothing has been in the news for a long time... Hotel is fine! Very popular in area as is the bar..

Compared to other Waterparks in different cities this place is the worst I have ever been to. CoCo Keys was shut down and has been for months due to city code violations. All the online information did not indicate that the waterpark was closed at time of reservation. But when it was open it was very unsatisfying. I smelled nothing... More

We soon found out after checking in that " CoCo Keys was shut down and has been for months due to city code violations. All the online and reservation info references Coco Keys with no Referance to being closed. I will not be... More

This began as a beautiful facility but was not supported so it has become very unfavorable. It may now be closed.

I had my worst ever experience with this water park. I purchased a family package and checked the website before going. The website shows "water park will be closed for maintenance", so I checked "hours of operation" and found 9/27 is the last day of the season. Since I will be driving 70 miles I called the water park but... More

I was going to go and take kids. I have heard others talk of a negative experience they had there. I was still going to give it benefit of the doubt. But, I chose to look on here to see other reviews before booking, as I trust Trip Advisor. I saw that it was closed reading reviews. I then looked... More

Small water park good for small kids not worth the money, the rooms were average at best but the location was good if you want to do other stuff. Hot tubs were good for adults

Tried to go, but the place is closed until further notice. Searched in the news, and found out that the city of Rockford has condemned this place until it rectifies several issues.
