Purchased the day passes online. We live within an hour of the water park so only went for the day. It is off season so only open on weekends and not until 3 pm. We went for nice lunch first then headed to the water park. Very well staffed and maintained

We got day passes to use the water park and couldn't have had a better time! It was clean and inexpensive and my six-year-old loved it!! I think it's geared toward younger children and the older kids will likely get bored but it was perfect for us. The staff was great and the food was good and didn't break the... More

This place is a great time for younger kids. Especially in the winter. Staff was very friendly. Prices are good. Highly recommend for a fun day with the kids. Go to kalahari if you have older kids, 10 and up.

My children loved the water park and I loved the huge hot tub. The water park is great and there are plenty of lifeguards on duty. There are pleanty of towels, which is nice but they are kind of small.

I brought my kids for the day, we purchased day passes at what I felt to be a reasonable price. This is a big, clean, fantastic indoor waterpark! The staff were all very friendly, and we got to meet Snoopy at check-in, and got a pic! The lifeguards are plentiful, and extremely professional. There are clean swim vests for kids... More

We stayed overnight, the room was clean, but damp, everything had that damp feeling. There was a sweet type of smell in the room, maybe something they use to clean with?? The bathroom and closet opposite it where massive - lot's of wasted space. The beds where REALLY uncomfortable. The water park was a nice size and enjoyable. the staff... More

Staff was amazing. This place was empty the one time we visited here and it was awesome. Although, if this place was busy, I bet it wouldn't have been nearly as fun as it was. Great waterpark hotel to stay at if you are going to Cedar Point. Rooms really needed an update though. Not nearly as nice as Kalahari.

My father went to get a beer at the snack shop in the indoor waterpark....he is 69 years old. They refuse to give him a beer without his drvers license! An old man on vacation cant even get a beer. Who carries their drivers license into a waterpark? We bought nothing from the snack shop...and we were going to order... More

Rooms and common areas could definitely use a refresh. Water park was a hit with the family though! Clean and fun if on the smaller side. It had enough to keep a three year old and a sixteen year old happy for 4+ hours. Ask for lake side view. Nice early entry perk to Cedar Point which helped a ton... More
