We went here last summer and spent over $200 for just entrance fees & food that was only mediocre. Our 5-year old couldn't get on most of the rides because she's short for her age (that's what we were told), and the lines were incredibly long. I would recommend six flags instead of this place. It's further but SO much more worth it!

This is a great place to have some cool water fun. Wave pool and slides galore plus a slow moving area to relax on a tube. Even has infant/toddler/kiddie areas to have watery fun.

We really enjoyed the park. It was very clean and very well kept up. The food was quite reasonable and there were lockers to keep your belongings in. They also have cabanas to rent. The price of admission, however, was very very pricey, even with the resident discount.

I've bought a season pass since they first opened and until this last year (2013) they were awesome. This past season, they seemed to be closed more than they were open. I have week days off and when they weren't closed the entire week, they were closed during the week. I still got my money's worth as it only takes about 3 times ($30 adult) to equal the resident season pass price ($89), but hopefully they will remain open when they say they're going to be open. They also didn't send out emails last year to pick up season passes and only had notifications of closures at the last minute on Facebook.

This water park is very nice and pretty big for an outdoor water park in a small town. It is a little expensive to go, but if you make a day of it you can get your money's worth.
