We took our kids there for a winter mini-vacation. We only live an hour away and arrived on Thursday evening, staying through Saturday noon. Our kids are two years old and 6 months old and they both loved it. The pool starts at zero entry...More

I took the grandkids out for a day away in the wet/cold weather. We happened to be the only ones there for a short time and the life guard was wonderful! Soon, a number of families joined us and it was a great time!

Just visited for the first time with our grandkids. We went for the day over spring break. The lifeguard was very sweet and attentive to the kids. The water was bathtub warm and the changing room was good. I would definitely take the kids again!

Needs some updating...looking tired. Two major slides is all...one to slide down with an inner tube and the other without. Needs more supervision by the lifeguards.

It was ok. The lazy river is small. The slides were ok. The deep pool is connected with the toddler splash area and is very dangerous. Several kids wandered over there and couldn't touch. I had to save a little girl twice!!! No lifeguard in...More

The Great Serengeti waterpark has a smallish, zero-entrance pool that is great for young children. It slowly gets to about three feet deep so my one year old was able to play in shallow water. She loved the water sprayers and the small waterslide. There...More

The thing that bothers me about this waterpark is the lack of lifeguards. Or maybe we shouldn't expect that they supply them. Then it should be posted none on duty. We were here for hours and all that time there was maybe one or two...More
