Close to home. Good way for 9 and 12 year old boys to spend a day without electronics. Don't expect the big thrill rides. Too bad there is not more shade in parking lot for those who pack lunch.

I had never been to a wave pool before and wow is all I can say. I guess I was still “whoo”-ing in my sleep that night.
They also have a ride called the Zambezi falls. Omg. Did it twice with my kids and it is so intense. Not for the faint at heart or thos with bad backs or necks. It’s a half pipe with a three story drop that you go down on a tube. So fun!
When we went there was barely any lines and it was the perfect weather- partly cloudy and 97 degrees.

We have been visiting BigSurf every year for the last 5 years and has become a must-do for our family. Great place and not too far out of the way.

We arrived at 3pm for the discount tickets so were there for 3 hours. That was plenty of time to ride every ride multiple times. It is a small park and the pool surfaces are chipping, but the park looks nice and no one bothered our stuff.
There are multiple lifeguards and friendly staff. There are about 6 different slides/rides, and a large pool that has waves for 10 min, calm for 10 min, etc. there is a lazy river that was my favorite.

You can bring in bottled water but nothing open. You can’t bring in food or your own flotation devices.

It was a fun day!

Took the family ranging from age 4-60. All had a great time. Plenty of things to do for all ages. This was our 2nd time here and will go back. Was great they had a promo, especially when buying a dozen tickets or we couldn't have afforded it.
