Nice, local water park. Needs a little upkeep though.

The handful of times i have been here have been disappointing. * One time the lazy river was closed, however they don't tell you until you purchased ticket and are in the park and see the sign 'closed' * They refused to let in a packet of yogurt melts (baby food) and there was nothing in the park for a...

This was our families first trip ever to a waterpark, and I was impressed with what it had to offer. Lots to do and our child had a blast. I was really impressed by the attentiveness of the lifeguards. They take their jobs seriously, and it shows. I did not purchase any food items, so I cannot rate the prices... More

The waterpark itself is great. It is large but not to big that you have to worry about losing kids in the crowd. Plenty of seats and picnic table to accommodate everyone. However, the staff in the concession stands are lazy and extremely disrespectful. When we went up to get food. The girl Was to busy watching the powdered sugar... More

We visit once or twice every summer. The kids have so much fun and to be honest so do us adults. Whether we are catching some waves in the wave pool, relaxing on the lazy river, riding down the slides, on the Go karts, mini golf or hitting in the batting cages it's never a dull moment. The snacks and... More

It's kinda small. I think it's meant more of for the little kids. Has about at least 5 water slides, a lazy river, go karts; which you have to pay extra for, bumper boats; went over to take a look and they look like they ride really slow. The wave pool was nice. Before you enter, if you have a... More

We loved going here with the kids! The staff is veey friendly, food that isn't expensive and slides that don't require long waits. We got sun beds along the pirate ship and were able to just lay and get sun. The park is well managed.

We always take our daughter and a few friends to WIld Water West before school starts for a day of wet, wild fun. Its not that expensive, and if you go after 5 its 1/2 price they serve food and the slides are great. We go several times a year and next month we will go again.

We have season passes here. Kids love it. It can get pretty busy and though the life guards are pretty good people need to watch their own children. Its lots of fun but can get pretty crowded. Don't just sit in a chair, supervise your kids. It would make everyone else's time more enjoyable.
