“Great fun with Teens, prepair for injuries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Rafting the river is great fun and the river flow was a bit higher this year, which helped prevent some injuries on the rocks. I suggest three or four man rafts as the single's are very prone to tipping over or dragging smaller riders against the rocks.
We went to the City pool, very large with nice grass areas, some shade for those who arrive early. New water slides that cross the entrance road are fun, but somewhat slow to move through the line. Also some muddy areas due to sprinkler problems I suspect.
Hot springs - recent refurbishment was nice, the old showers and changing room are gone but I didn't inspect the new one. Pretty hot activity for august but very popular at night.
We regretted going on a Saturday as the croud was large and a bit roudy. Some people like that kind of thing. Weekdays are much less so.

“Hot tomale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

This was a serene well maintained peaceful place. You can wade into the increasingly hot pools or sit on the cool stones and relax and enjoy the gorgeous rocky view. Great for lovers. The asian tourists loved it.

“Nice Pools”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2009

We only used the pools. The price was average. Found out that the Big water park is "State" run and they do not share the proceeds with the City. Appears to be sort of a riff amongst the locals
