This waterpark is amazing. Kids can play for an entire day! Only 30 minutes from Maple Grove or 40 minutes from MOA. The room service was good, but the breakfast is terrible. Hit the Denny's across the way before eating here for breakfast. I also had a really rude server for breakfast, but other meals were good. Pizza is great... More

The only thing this hotel has going for them is how fun the waterpark is. Everything else deserves a thumbs down. We rented 3 rooms for our kids birthdays, and all of our rooms smelled musty. Our bathroom floor was not swept as we had a dead bug on the floor, and for how pricy the hotel was you would... More

I did not look around rite away as my son brought a friend this time and wanted to get down to the water park.

We stayed at this hotel with 2 6 year old boys and they had a blast!! The water park is big enough for all ages to have fun, but not too big that you can still keep a close eye on your children. The room was clean and very affordable. The price included our 4 water park passes and vouchers... More

Water park is entertaining for a wide variety of ages. Fun for young and old. Great place for family gathering. Rooms are nice and comfortable overall. (Wish they had clothes-line or more hooks to dry swim gear in rooms.) Had breakfast the next morning, which could have been better. Majority of our party ordered off the menu and it took... More

I have come to this hotel multiple times. It is always 100$ cheaper than other local waterparks. They have better associates that take care of your needs. Kids always eat free. Rooms always clean. Great second floor smoking balcony. Resteraunt in building with good happy hour specials and good food. Close bars and resteraunt if you don't want to eat... More
