we went with our kids ages 5 and 7, and spent most of a day. There were lots of rides for them, and an entire waterpark, which was the only logistically challenging thing. We brought swim suits and towels which of course we could not bring with us on the rides, so put them in a locker and then came back to get them. We told the kids the water park was last so they could go home wet. It worked well and we could have spent more time. It's not disneyland but it's great.

It is a good, close place to visit with the children of all ages. There is a lot to do no matter what your age is!

I usually am pretty suspect of canned entertainment for kids, but they love it. There are lots of shady spots for parents to linger, the music is fun, but the food price are outrageous. Over $20 for a limp hot dog and drink for two kids.

This is good size park with rides and coasters for all the family.
Park was really quiet when we visted and we got loads of repeat rides on the B&M inverted Flight Deck - one of the best coasters of this type anywhere. The B&M stand up Vortex is good for a stand up coaster, but it's still a stand up coaster !!!. Great woodie Grizzly.
It was mid October and the park was well decorated and themed for Halloween.
