The best water world with lots of alternatives for adults and kids. Wave pool is a taste of ocean action right in Erie.

Beautiful place and a few things I love...Parents don't pay to get in unless they are riding the rides. Leashed dogs are permited. No smoking except in designated areas. The family and I have been there multiple times and its always been clean and beautiful.

All the traditional amusement park rides are there with relatively short walks between them. I especially liked that park entry is free for those who cannot or choose not to go on any rides or maybe want to check it out before purchasing a ticket.
