We arrived Aug 1 on a Friday early, when it opened at Noon. We were there about an hour. $8 each for my wife and I. This is the kind of thing where perhaps you might stay 2 hours and then you're done. So to charge everyone a full day ticket seems a bit abusive. Perhaps offering a 1/2 day ticket would be more fair. It is easy to see that the owners are trying to rake in whatever money they can.
Our drive in was fine except for about the last 3 to 4 miles is an unpaved dirt road. So how relaxed were we after soaking for one hour in their naturally hot mineral water springs? Very! I enjoyed the experience a lot, I just wish it wasn't so overpriced. The place and water seemed clean to me. Yes, there a porta-potties there, but I didn't smell anything. They also offer free changing rooms and paid locker service. Why anyone would pay to lock up when you can simply put your things back in your car is beyond me. They also have handicap parking right up front. As we were leaving the place seemed to be getting more and more crowded, it being a Friday. I would suggest visiting on a weekday. Children are allowed and with enough people and their kids, I'm sure the serenity is quickly ruined. Overall our experience was pleasant but I probably wouldn't go again.
