My family of 4 buys a season pass here yearly. I can’t speak to what it’s like without a pass but we always have a good experience. Things to remember: no non factory sealed drinks allowed, no toys allowed, no alcohol allowed. If you don’t bring those things bag check is a breeze. The park isn’t huge but it’s large enough that people of all ages can find something to do. The food isn’t bad, but I recommend bringing a cooler.

I would strongly recommend this waterpark for people with all ages! This is a smaller waterpark if you compare it to Wet N Wild Spashtown or Schlitterbahn, but I much rather go here than those parks! Especially if you are on a budget. The best part of this waterpark is there parking if free and you get to bring your own food and drinks. There is enough to do for people with kids of all ages. They just added to new water rides and a wave pool which is a great thing! My family and I go here at least twice in the summer and we never get disappointed. I will advice to get there early (at least 30 minutes early) and stand in the line to get a decent table for you and your family.

We loved that we can take our own food and drinks...kids had fun...it's small which is a good thing...they don't let the park over crowd..once they reach a certain capacity they stop letting people in so I would recommend get there early

Buyer Beware - the park is very low in tubes for the lazy river, and they hassle you if the tube you are lucky enough to get is not in the water. They let the season pass holders in first at 11 AM, and they grab the 15 tubes (that I counted) first. The park is really run by teenagers and an inept lady. The bathrooms are atrocious!

Have fun at Poops - sorry Pirates Water Park

I was planning a trip here but when I read the FAQ, it said that guests are not allowed same day in and out privileges which is completely inconsistent with all other theme parks and water parks. Some people have certain medical, dietary, and religious dining needs and would have to leave to go eat lunch especially due to food allergies and other medical needs. Their no same day exit and re-entry policy is a direct violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act Title II-4.3200 which requires that reasonable accommodations be made to compensate for a disability or a medical condition. It is unfortunate that they choose to ignore the law.

First of all, what most people say its true get there really early. I was on line at 10:20 and the couple after me were told they were the cut off and that the park was at capacity, you heard right 20 minutes after opening the waterpark is at maximum capacity. The tickets are $20 for 48 inches and higher and $15 for under 48 inches, which they measure the kids with a metal stick and everyone in my party was over 48 inches except for my 6 year old .You are allowed to bring coolers and people do just that. There were people with 2-story cakes, and a 1 year supply of groceries on coolers. So, that leads to every single table filled with stuff. I thought this was inconvenient, because they had a burger shack with tables in the pavilion for those purchasing their food ,but those tables were occupied with loads of coolers and groceries and left unattended. In my opinion kind of ghetto to be bringing so much food and leaving the stuff everywhere. I mean bringing a small soft cooler with sandwiches and drinks I think should be the limit and less of an eyesore .Apart from the waiting in line to get into the park and the coolers ,towels,bags and stuff all over the place I would recommend this park for a cheap outing. You can't beat the price of admission for a waterpark. Another plus the food there is really cheap,for example a personal pizza 6 bucks and $2 for a 20 oz drink. Better yet, a burger with homemade fries and a drink for $6 bucks.They don't have a giftshop ,just a corner from the lockers a booth that sells basic t-shirts with park logo and beanie babies(toy).They have a wave pool that is decent size. They have several kiddie pools and a tube river as well as a couple water slides. I would recommend you go on a weekday so you can avoid the crowds . They do have lockers for rent $15 deposit and they would refund $10 once you return the key. Also, several of the bathrooms have a shower area. They have life jackets for kids ,but unless you're one of the first ones fat chance you'll get one. However I noticed you can bring your own life jackets and several kids had inflatables. The park is very relax with attire. I saw people with workboots and jeans, jeanshorts and regular white t-shirts. There were women with very skimpy bikinis and men with wet soccer socks inside the pools. If you come here ,do so with an open mind and enjoy the park. I have taken my kids to $500 a night waterpark resorts and several waterparks as long as they enjoy their stay that is all that matters. We left at 5pm and my kids still wanted to stay a little longer :)

It may not be the biggest water park around but you will get your money's worth and then some. My kids will stay all day and be well entertained! Its also not over crowded like schlitterbahn! You have room to breath and its clean! And its always a plus when you can bring in your coolers!

We decided to go to give this water park a try on a Friday. It seems to be a huge hit because they were at max capacity and we waited nearly 2 hours to get in. It was fun for the kids once we were admitted in the park but it was a long, hot wait with no covered area to wait in. There is also no potty accessible while you are waiting..my 4 year old had to go behind a building because although there were restrooms a little ways away, they were locked. We did discover upon arrival that you can bring your ice chests into the park with food and drinks (I highly recommend this because the food inside is not very good and it is highly priced-they ran out of Powerade and Water at the main concession stand and we were told to walk to the one across the park, only to discover no one there). If you can find any coupons for this place--print them and use them. Our tab to get in was over $60 for 2 adults, a 9 year old, and a 4 year old--I really wish we'd arrived earlier knowing we'd wait for 2 hours in line. We arrived at 2 and waited until almost 4. So we certainly didn't get our money's worth in 3 hours and the discounted tickets go on sale at 4 so if we'd known we would have been waiting that long, we would have waited to purchase the tickets, however they were non refundable. One last thing...the water was not cold. It was luke warm at best...I'm not sure if that's something they can be held accountable for but I thought it should be added. I will say that there was plenty to do once you finally get in...if you can find a table and chairs you are lucky...busy place!!

I'm giving this Water Park 5 stars because honestly, there wasn't anything wrong with it. My 10 year old cousin and 3 year old Goddaughter had a blast! It's a smaller water park however there's something for everyone! (It's also only $20 and $15 for anyone under 48 inches)

Tips - if you're coming here on the weekends, they open at 10 so you should probably be there by 9-9:30. The lines are long if you get there at 10.

2) buy your tickets online. There's a line for tickets and one to enter the park. After you wait in line to purchase your ticket, you then join the line to enter the park.

3) bring your snacks and drinks in your cooler. I think the best feature is you're able to bring your food and drinks. However if you like, they have good items for sale. (Reasonably priced)

Park was clean and well maintained. The life guards were friendly and accommodating. Again everyone had a great time. I recommended this water park.
