Excellent small manageable park for preschool/elementary crowd (up to 3-10 y.o.) It has both water park and "dry" rides, as well as a small petting zoo and other activities. Not too crowded, even on July 4th weekend. Word of warning: cash or Discover ONLY

This place is exactly where you need to go with kids under 10. The water park is just big enough for them to enjoy and parents not to pass out from too much chasing kids . The amusement part is the same. Rides are made...More

This is a small local water park, perfect for grandparents and grandkids. Some rides, some water slides and a lazy river. Not huge, but clean and fun.

The best Advice I can give with this place is to get there early to secure your lounge chair. They could do a better job with some of the communications. The tables have signs that say Not for Picnics, but people have all out picnics...More

I think a 7 - 13 year old would love the water part of the park - all the slides would be fun/accessible. As for the dry/mechanical rides, the 13 year old may be too big to ride quite a few. There would still be a... More
