We spent a disappointing day at the park. It was SO CROWDED! And it seemed that many rides could have had shorter lines if more workers present- like only half of it was utilized. A couple rides only had two workers, where 4 should have been. It was a fall day, so perhaps less staff, but it was beautiful weather... More

We had a nice time, but long lines, and their pass to get head of line is very expensive. A mix of older and newer rides. Worth a stop, but I would not make a major trip to visit, unlike some other parks.

My family of 4 and I amazingly spent 11 hours walking around the park. There was so much to do and so many things to look at and take in that my children 7 and 9 years old didn't have much to complain about. Prices for food were decent and you got a lot.

Park very busy during summer. The water park is nice. You probably need two days to see everything. There is a lot of walking. My niece says they should have a separate waterpark entrance which would help with lugging beach stuff through the park.

There is actually a ton of stuff to do here. Quite a few roller coasters, for those who are interested in that. And a lot of smaller rides for kids (think glorified carnival rides).It is very expensive though. We spent an entire day there and ended up not being able to do everything. Plus the water park was closed, so... More

My family and I went for a quick weekend getaway for my birthday. The park is very large with many hills. So glad our kids have outgrown their strollers! It was the last weekend the park would be open for the summer and it was crowded! I guess the nice weather brought out the locals and the tourists. Allow a... More

It's a great place for friends to gather. We enjoyed the Hershey Kiss ride the best. We went in the morning and came back later in the evening.
