Took our kids (2) and grandkids(5) for an early Xmas gift. We booked a regular family suite for ourselves and a kid camp and wolf den for our kids and family. The rooms were large and well appointed with everything you needed - shampoo, body lotion etc. We took our own snacks and drinks and found this was helpful in keeping costs down a little. They say there is no food or drink allowed in the waterpark but we looked around and saw plenty of both. Took drinking boxes and boxes of cookies in and had no problems.
We arrived just before 1:00 pm, checked us all in, got wristbands and left a phone # with reception for contact when our rooms were ready and headed to the pools. Before we were all changed, received texts that all three rooms were available. Since we were all changed, we didn't bother going to the rooms but enjoyed the water until about 4:30. The kids had a blast. So much so, that they didn't want to go to the storytime but preferred to go back in the pools. The older two (ages 10 and 8) were given special wrist bands that enabled them to go on their own. The others (ages 6,5 and 3) were given different coloured bands which meant they either weren't big enough or required an adult but fun was had by all. I especially liked the blue slide which was like riding a rollercoaster. My one grandson enjoyed the bowl (he called it the toilet bowl) and the younger kids loved the kids hot tub and the wave pool.
We bought the food pkg for all and found it was quite good. You can probably eat for less than the $45/adult they charge, but we enjoyed the buffets as a family and since this is their Xmas gift from us, thought we should eat together as a family.
Only complaint would be the beds were a little soft for our liking although my 2 kids thought they were too hard. I guess it's what you get used to! We went to the arcade for a bit and the older grandson had fun. Let the kids each pick something out for $20 at the gift shop and thought everything was fairly priced. Didn't take part in the Magic Quest since kids preferred to swim.
All in all would go back. As a matter of fact, they are all asking if it's going to be their Xmas present next year too!
