“Great in the past”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I get a pass to the Waterpark wave pool each year and it has declined for the past 5 years. I continue to let management know about the lack of cleanliness - they allow people in the pool with street clothes on, a mother was nursing her baby in the pool, the pool is too small for the crowds. If you swim after 12 noon, there is no room at all. No parking either. I have seen fights in the wave pool - not much attention given by management.

“Too crowded, Too small... Needs Updated.”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This place is decsent to cool off and try to have a little fun in the sun, but it is so overcrowded there is hardly enough room to walk around or swim. They have a large wave pool, it got dangerous when a large group of hoodlums took it over!

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This waterpark had a beautiful view of the river and a great price to go with it. Great slides and the best diving boards ever river swimming along with a wave pool.

“Over crowded”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I have been coming here at least once a year for the past 18 years (i live in the area), but in recent years the amount of people vs. pool space is ridiculous! We are season ticket holders and my kids enjoy it, however, next year I think we will be looking at other community pools. The olympic pool has a small swim space that on more days then not is so packed you can not swim. My children are always getting ran over by someone and are unable to play with a ball or rings because there isn't enough room. Not to mention the smell of urine, the bath water warm pool (due to over crowding), rude employees, fights breaking out daily, and horrible bathroom facilities. My family and I will NOT! be back until improvements are made which might be never.
