“Very crowded!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Just okay, maybe we would have had a better time if it wasn't so crowded, especialy having kids that you have to keep up with in all the crowds. It was clean and there are many attractions, But I agree with other reviewers that it is over priced. However most water parks are. A day at the beach is just as fun and cheaper.

“Great outlet for the kids/grandkids”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We took the grandkids there during our visit and had almost as much fun as they did. The attractions are fun and exciting, yet safe. When it gets hot outside, the air-conditioned inside provides a comfortable escape.

“Overpriced water park”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Just another water park. This place has been around for years and it shows. In recent years they have gotten extremely money hungry. They have begun charging $5 for parking and this fee is NOT incorporated into reducing the entrance fee (which has also been raised higher than what it should be). Not very family oriented and way to many teeny-boppers, w/o parents make this park no fun if you have smaller children. If you are looking for a place to play putt-putt, go to FWB Goofy Golf. Travel the extra 45 minutes and go to Panama City if you are looking for a water park.

“Water park that every kid would love.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The challenge is that the parent, grandparent in our case, needs to be physically fit to keep pace with the kids! We never had a young one say that they were bored at Big Kahuna....p.s. bring your water shoes and be in shape....our 3-4 miles of walking and running a day pays off!

“A water park”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is another water park at the beach. I am not a fan of such facilities at or near a beach. The prices charged at this park are high for what it is, resulting in a poor rating.
