For it's location (northern Illinois) this water park is fantastic. Having visited water parks in Florida, this park can compete with them any day. The park is clean. The attractions are constantly being remodeled and well maintained. There are plenty of seating areas. A great place to spend a summer day.

We picked yesterday to go and it was a perfect day. The temps were in the 90's and sunny. I thought that the crowds would be unmanageable but to our surprise it was very comfortable wait times. The splash blaster was a long wait which it always is, I tell my kids to go on that first in the day and they did and they got on within 10 minutes. All the attractions were 10 minutes to a 20 minute wait, with the exception of splash blaster. We never waited for a raft for the lazy river, although sometimes there were a few people wating for a couple of minutes. LIving in the area we had heard this summer that they had run out of room for parking, this park holds 7,000 people. I believe the reason we had a slower day was that we went on a Monday when the rates are higher. On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday the rate is only 12 dollars for everyone. We paid more than 12 dollars with the resident rate, and as an out of town guest it is 23 dollars. So if you want to avoid crowds and you don't mind paying more make your visit on a Monday. It is also open until 9:00 on Mondays, whereas on the bargin days it is only open until 6:00. If you are coming in from out of town you can get a discount coupon at some of the area Mc Donalds, it is only good on regular price days. You can get there early and purchase your tickets and get in line. I would have waited an hour before getting to the park if I had not had to leave early that day, That is if you want to avoid the entrance crowd. The park was clean and the staff was very friendly with a lot of lifegaurds. This park is for all ages and if you like the water it is great fun for everyone.

Parking is free! People can bring coolers & tailgate so you can save money. Prices are cheap so it is good family fun. Life guards are everywhere but I still kept a close eye on my kids!! Advice: Rent a raft for the day so you don't have to wait.

We rented a cabana as a family and it was very nice to have a place in the shade for the little ones. We brought a cooler and we were as happy as clams. A mini vacation at a reasonable price.
