“It was just ok”
Review of Daytona Lagoon

Reviewed June 4, 2018

I took my son there for the afternoon pricing for the waterpark. The park could use some improvements, and the large slide was under construction. If you are a waterpark person this is not the place for you, but it you are in search of some fun on an afternoon, then understand you get what you pay for. The largest eyesore for me was the rust on many surfaces including stairs that are utilized for ascending to the slides. The indoor arcade stuff was fun, and we did not use the go karts or mini golf so cannot comment on that. Food was questionable, like the previous reviewer, borderline gas station fare. Still, we had fun and I would go again with the understanding this is a small park in a tourist area. It was realitively clean, safe and good for small children. Staff was attentive. Parking is validated for the garage at a discounted rate, so bring your ticket. Say hi to the nice older gentleman who drives the security golf cart for the garage he is helpful and friendly.

We bought season passes for the 1st timer for our sons bday gift. We have used them 2 times now and ONLY because our son enjoys the water. We will NEVER buy them again. Theres a few reasons why. One they are so exspensive for being fla residents and something that seems to have ALL the rides closed dowm evrrytime we are there, theres one ride they still havent fixed since the last hurricane, I couldnt believe the prices for a drink and food when the two ppl who ordered food next to me complained just as much at how cruddy the food looked and told me I shouldnt of bought anything since it tastes like horrible gas station food you get charged an arm and a leg for and let me tell you, they were correct!! Ickk! Even Disney allows you to bring in a cooler! However Disney and the water parks in orlando seem to have much more class as they would never allow teenagers and adults to also be wearing thong bathing suits in a FAMILY water park! You should see how many are there whos butts are completely showing and how many ppls heads are swaying back and fourth with huge looks of disgusts hiding their kids eyes from it. Its totally disgusting and not the way of a "family park" it's despicable really. Im 32 and fit and I would NEVER wear a thong bathing suit infront of a bunch of children. Daytona Lagoon seems to have only 1 rule(no outside drinks or food) and no morals! Dont waste your money!

littledipper80, we do apologize that your visit to Daytona Lagoon didn't meet your expectations. In your complaint it mentioned all the rides were closed. There are days before summer starts that we are scheduled for pool days, these days can be found on our calendar that we publish at the start of the year. On these days we advertise that only the Wave pool, Kid area and 1 slide will be open. We do this so that we are able to open for those few guests that do want to come during the week, but all the weekends the park is fully open and starting June 1st till the end of summer the entire park is open. You are correct that we still have a slide that was damaged in the last hurricane, this slide is being replaced and should be complete very soon, as well as us putting up a brand new slide. That I am aware of we did not have any concerns about inappropriate swimwear, if there is a issue in the future please let us know so that we can make sure that the situation is handled. I do apologize that you didn't like your food, we actually get regular positive comments about what we serve. You are correct that we dont allow outside food into the park, this is common practice for most parks. Lastly, if you are looking for a deal in the future on season passes, I would look at purchasing them during our Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale, that is the cheapest time to buy them. Have a great day and thanks for letting us know your thoughts.

The water park was not open yet but the go cart track was and it was a hit with the kids!! The arcade had a laser tag and high obstacle course! Very nice place to take the kids!! Will definitely be back!!! Prices aren’t to high!

Went here to play Putt Putt and once there realized there was so much more to do! The Putt Putt course was fun, challenging and winds around under the water slides and next to the go-karts which is fun. Things happening all around all the time. Course is in lots of shade so great to do on a hot day without melting in the sun.

Large game room inside with indoor climbing course and good games. We wandered through on the way to get our tickets for mini golf. Will definitely go back for the water slides and go karts next time we are in town.
