Avalanche Bay had a great variety of activities, well supervised and affordable food options. Locker rooms needed attention, kinda gross. Plus it didn't stink like chlorine!

Well staffed, good at at arcade, reasonably priced concessions, they have it managed pretty well with timing of rides and running people through. We took advantage of the lower half-day rate after 4:00.

Spent afternoon with family and 3, 7, and 9 year old. We all had a blast. We are locals so, coming here is always fun. They have a lagoon, hot tub, toddler pool, race slides, couple big slides and regular pool. Arcade, cafe and gift shop inside. Great family fun.

Always clean and not gross like some waterparks, but there needs to be a few more big slides/ thrilling rides. Still great tho

The indoor waterpark attached to the hotel is very fun! There are a multitude of activities to do including a lazy river, a giant waterslide, multiple tubing waterslides, a surfing simulator and a giant water bucket. The waterpark is kept nice and warm temperature all the time so you are never chilly which is good and offer food services as... More

We always love coming to Avalanche Bay. We have never been disappointed coming here. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Always good parking. Price is a little rich, but at the end of the day it's the last thing you think about. I wrote about Avalanche Bay last fall, and my one complaint is still the same today. Time for... More

I found it very costly, indoor dining was so overpriced, but our children had a blast and was happy to see the enjoy the waterpark.

We visited out of season and it was perfect. We are use to going to large crazy water parks. This was a nice change for our small children. It was not crowed at all and the slides were perfect for our 5 and 3 yr olds. Would definitely recommend to families with small kids. I only gave 4 stars because... More

We took four kids ranging in age from 15-8 and everyone had a great time, there was plenty of levels or slides and activities for everyone. I suggest checking Groupon for great deals on hotel and waterpark, we saved a lot of money by doing that. Would definitely recommend coming here over larger more over priced resorts.

My first visit to a water park and I was pleasantly surprised. It was cold outside and nice in the water park. Kids loved it and we "seniors " also had a great time. Plenty of parking.
