Nice small but clean and safe waterpark in the heart of the Osage Beach area. A great place for family fun and relaxation! Love the lazy river. Good food.

Just to be clear, I enjoyed my time here, but there is not much to do compared to most other outdoor waterparks. The price when my family went was $30 per person, I think (may have been $40), and if you wanted to be able...More

We took advantage of the after 3 discount and spent most of the afternoon in the wave pool. The park was clean and the people were friendly. The water slides weren't terribly crowded so the kids were able to get plenty of turns on their...More
