This place has something for everyone. My 10 yr old loved the wave pool and my teenager loved the slide. Best to make sure you have at least two people who want to slide as many slides required two sliders at least.

The management is super racist, I wouldn’t ever go back, they don’t care about their customers, they only care about money

The Wave pool gets up to 6 foot but only in the deepest area most of the pool is like a beach and you walk into it. Lots of Life guards on duty there.

They have a good website with frequent deals. We purchased a great package deal from Groupon for $199 per night for a family of 6, which included all park passes and some other perks.
