“Nothing special here....”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

If you have ever been to Splish Splash on LI then you can forget this place even exists. For the $ 30 price of admission there are a few average sized water slides, a small kiddy area, a lazy river and a small wave pool without waves (more like 3 foot swells). The cabana's are an additional $30 and are nothing more than a canopy, 4 plastic chairs and no privacy (cabanas are lined up around the perimeter of the water park). If you decide to go, bring a cooler with food and drinks, arrive early and claim a few lounge chairs for the day by placing a towel on each (by noon there wasn't a lounge available in the entire park). Also keep in mind that the park closes at 5 pm. for whatever reason. For my money, I'll find many more interesting things to do while visiting Cape Cod!

“If your kids love water parks, and you can tolerate long lines, this is for you”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

General thoughts-
Lines are really long for all the slides. The slides themselves are pretty good, no complaints there.
Lazy river was excellent and lines not too bad. Wave pool was fun. Good area for little kiddies under 3 also.
Wildly overpriced at $30/person, and from the clientele, it looked like it must've been a dollar off for each tattoo people had.
Cleanliness level was better than expected for a water park full of kids, though not enough bathrooms.
Food was tolerable and surprisingly not overpriced.
Parking is free, and its about 1 hour from Boston and 10 min from the Cape bridges.
Its gets very zooey in the afternoons, best to go early to get chairs (no need to pay for cabanas)
Overall, it was pretty decent and we would go back if the kids insist on it.

“Too crowded....long lines to wait in.”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We went on a weekday first thing in the morning. We rented a cabana which was great on the "island" - number 57, 58 and 59 are all in a less crowded area. So the cabana was good - it gave us some space and shade for those who wanted it.
However, the park was mobbed! there were at least 12 buses of kids if not more! we went on a slide 2 times and gave up. The wait was 45+ minutes. I've been to water parks and they have been busy but not like this! You could barely move. No enjoyment. What a shame to go all that way and then go down the slide two times. What is the capacity? Is there a cap as to how many can enter the water park at one time?
The other issue is we only found 2 restrooms in the whole place. The lines of kids from camps on the buses to change there clothes in the bathroom was overwhelming. It took us 40 minutes to get to use the bathroom.
So I have been here and won't need to go back.

“Water fun. Family adventure”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We enjoyed water wiz. The park is clean. The lines were a bit long due to the fact that it was a very hot day. Basically you are on your own once you get in. There are no glass containers permitted once through the gate (they go through you coolers). All in all it was a fun day with my family.
