“Fun water park, needs some spiffing up, food decent.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We went for the day to the water park with our 4 yr old. He loved it. We liked the small slides and the lazy river. Our child was too small for the big slides, but they looked like a lot of fun. The decorated concrete around the park needs some repainting, but it's not in horrible shape.

We ordered pizza from the snack bar. It was fine. Also had a hot pretzel which was the microwaved kind, so it wasn't the greatest I've ever had.

If you go to the game area, which is impossible to avoid because it is the first thing you see, bring a good amount of cash. They have the typically priced games that spit out the "prize" tickets for some dinky 10 cent toy.

***If you are planning to go just for the day, they have changed their policy and you have to bring your own towels. The resort towels are now for the resort guests only.

to start the room was just filthy. then on top of it my 1 yr got hurt as the heat/ac vent fell on her when she bumped into it causing her to be scratched on the leg. The scratch was not hospital scratch but enough she cried when she got it wet. We told the supervisor and he did not care.

All in all it will be the last time for us!!!

Dear Trip Advisor Reviewer,
Thank you for your recent review. I apologize that you feel your room was not clean. We usually get great comments that our rooms are nice and clean. We also apologize that the AC/Heating vent scratched your child. You mentioned speaking to a Supervisor. Was it a front desk supervisor or a water park supervisor? Hopefully you were able to get a band aid to cover the scratch and make your daughter feel better. Again, we do apologize for these inconveniences you experienced during your stay. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to email us as guestrelations@bigsplashadventure.com.
Sincerely,
Management

If you're looking for a quick getaway with kids this is the place. The waterpark is clean, the water is warm, and there are plenty of things to keep the kids occupied. The only negative to this hotel is that there isn't a lot to do in French Lick for kids other than the hotel and rhe mini golf place down the hill.

We enjoyed the waterpark. The lines for food during lunch time were ridiculous. The locker keys were a magnetized bracelet which was good. I can't speak to the rooms. We just had day passes. The place overall was good. They could have had a better set-up for the big tube rides. The lines were a little rough and being all together made it a little hectic.

It could have used one more water ride. But overall the place was nice. Our kids had a blast. It all went well.

I would go back if there weren't other local options for us(we drove from Louisville). But I still would rather goto a closer place.

There were too many guests in the water park, no seats were available the entire stay, The lines were so long for the slides the kids only were able to get on 3 or 4 times. Water was cold, the FREE breakfast was okay but the service was horrible. We will go to the Great Wolf Logde next time, much more upscale and focused on taking care of their customers.

We went during the middle of the week for two nights. One night is probably enough. Check in was fine. We arrived around 4pm. You may arrive earlier and use the water park prior to check in. You need to receive your wrist band so you can use the water park. We ate at the buffet for dinner on the first night, it was average. The breakfast buffet was fine. But, the staff needed to keep up with the silverware. They ran out two days in a row for breakfast. There is a pizza and snack bar on second floor.
The water park is fine. Great area for the younger children. They have a couple of large slides for the older children. A lazy river also. There is not an actual pool to swim in. The pool area is approx. 4 feet deep, more for playing ball. A large hot tub for 18 and over. There are lifeguards on duty.
The hotel room was fine. We stayed two nights. Our room was not cleaned after the first night. We gave the cleaning staff our garbage, received clean towels and tp. We had been out of the room all day until approx. 4 pm or so, thought it would have been cleaned by that time. Not a real problem though.

Overall, a good time for the children, but I believe one night was probably enough for the age of the children 11 and 13.

Room Tip: The second floor is where the entrance to the water is located. So if you do not mind people coming...

We stayed a few nights last summer and overall had a good time. Check-in was busy, one of the attendees had a bit of an attitude when I attempted to get her attention. The room was clean and the housekeeper was very nice and helpful. We had a great time at the water park, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. Although, the food was OK, there really weren't a lot of food choices. The servers were helpful and nice, but overall the food could be better. There aren't a lot of dining choices in French Lick either unless you want to head over to one of the other resorts and pay a high amount. It would be nice to have mini fridges and microwaves in the rooms. Zehnder's in Frankenmuth, MI was overall a much better value and better experience.
