Close to home. Good way for 9 and 12 year old boys to spend a day without electronics. Don't expect the big thrill rides. Too bad there is not more shade in parking lot for those who pack lunch.

I had never been to a wave pool before and wow is all I can say. I guess I was still “whoo”-ing in my sleep that night. They also have a ride called the Zambezi falls. Omg. Did it twice with my kids and it...More

We have been visiting BigSurf every year for the last 5 years and has become a must-do for our family. Great place and not too far out of the way.

Not a bad little place. There is not anything around like it at the lake which makes it unique. Price is consistent with the area.

The water was very cold and clean. Everything seemed to be somewhat outdated and needed painted otherwise it was nice on a hot day. The smaller children were having a great time, a little crowded and hard to find a more secluded area.

Let me just come out and say that I absolutely loved this waterpark as a kid. I used to come pretty frequently, and I remember having a blast in both the kid-specific area and the different slides/attractions. Although the number of different rides does appear...More
