We have had birthday and scout parties. It is always a good time for all ages. Nice concesson stand for a meal or just an ice cream.

We traveled here with our 2 year old, who loves water. We went two times during our stay at the Holiday Inn - once later afternoon, and once at about 6:30 in the evening. It was much quieter when we went later during the day as I think most visitors were eating supper. The park offered a nice small slide and splash area for litle ones connect to a swallow pool, which was also connected to a deeper pool with basketball hoops. The deeper pool was very busy with older kids and was too busy for our son. The slide was great though as was the splash area. The lazy river was not much of a river, so don't go expecting a long lazy river. We did not go down the large slides, but they looked like fun. For as small of an area, there was chairs available both visits and plenty of towels too. The locker room was gross, but we had a room at the hotel near by so this was not an issue. The lifeguards do all take a break periodically but this is standard for water parks and pools anyway.

We live in Twin Cities so we took a quick trip to Owatonna to stay at the Holiday Inn. They have a nice water park and accepted pets. Our girls were 6 & 4 so they we good ages use the water park. The park is free for guests. It has a fun tube slide, great shallow depth area for little ones, life guards on staff and some snacks available. The lazy river and the tube slide were our prime fun times. Oh- the hot tube is nice too.

The waterpark is perfect for toddlers/preschoolers. My group had so much fun. It certainly can get crowded though. Also, towels can be difficult to find and are quite small. The hotel rooms are clean and functional. The late check-in time, however, is a pain. I had requested that my room be ready early, but it wasn't. Also, the restaurant was expensive and of poor quality. We were there for the end of the breakfast buffet. We couldn't order from the menu, but they also wouldn't put out more food. We paid $10 a person for cereal and eggs. They wouldn't even put out fruit. My kids sure had a great time at the waterpark, so it was still a blast.
