We were visiting Pismo and getting tired of the foggy summer weather. The Ravine was a nice dose of sun and fun and only 30 minutes away. My four-year-old loved the tot pool with all of the fun slides and the shallow water. My husband and I took turns watching her and enjoying the tall slides and the lazy river. I could tell the staff was well-trained. The lifeguards were vigilant and obviously required to switch positions in the park at regular intervals to avoid fatigue. Every time I went to the high slides there were different employees there but they used the exact same methods and all were very pleasant and helpful. I saw nervous people get to the front and the employees would always explain that even if they fell off their innertube they would be fine to slide down the rest of the slide without it. I thought the food was very good and reasonably priced. There was a nice variety of snacks available as well. We went on a Friday after 4th of July and it wasn't crowded at all. There were plenty of lounge chairs and inner tubes. One slight downside was that the lazy river was a bit too shallow and it was easy to scrape feet or knees on the bottom. Also, I thought I had read in yelp reviews about there being too many bees. My daughter did get her first bee sting there by stepping on one near the tot pool slides. I would warn your children to watch where they step. Overall, a wonderful experience that I would definitely want to repeat.
