“Great for kids to stay cool”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Took our nieces and nephews here while visiting. It was perfect for them to burn off some energy. The flumes are a blast. Raging River is a little hard on a bad back kinda bumpy... You must Slay the the Dragon and take a spin in the big "toilet" Bowl :)

“Small yet expensive”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We drove 2 hours to get there because it's the only water park in the area. I was disappointed in the size, there were 7 slides and a over crowded lazy pool. The ground was so hot that we had to stand on the bannisters. It would be great if they had misters in the line. You can't bring in water but I snuck it in. They did not search my purse. They make you pay for tubes and tell you that they are not responsible if someone takes it. Well I had both my tubes stolen, we had to chase people down, and when we retrieved them the got stolen again. I don't know how they keep people from getting into fist fights. Every tube has a different name written on it so when someone takes it, you can find the person with your tube and confront them. It was unbelievable, I had to stand there holding my freakin tubes all day while my other family members rode the slides.

“Fun park but a wee bit expensive”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have been to several water parks in the country and our favorite has been Schlitterbahn's in Texas. This park is small, expensive, and a bit less "user friendly." They search your bags to make sure you bring in no food/water (not even baby food). They charge fairly hefty prices for their food/drink. We stood in line for water, food, and ice cream for 25 minutes and the kids refused the pizza saying it was "yucky" and wanted to wait until we left the park to eat. What kid refuses pizza! The Texas park lets you bring in your OWN cooler of food and drink. If you decide to eat their food, the food is great! The kids did have a good time, but the problem may have been the comparison to the Texas park. The WaterWorks park ran out of tubes (after telling the kids to come back when there were more to be inflated). Overall, this was a good place for a few hours but a bit pricey for that time span.
