We visited the park on our family vacation. It was a warm day. The facility was extremely clean. The kids loved the slides. The water was a little cool. The locker facilities were wonderful. The park was a great family day!

It was about 80 degrees and sunny the day we went. It was not overly crowded, and the lines for the different slides went quickly. The staff was alert and some were even quite entertaining. Our family (2 adults, 13 y.o. and 10 y.o.) had tons of fun!

We went on a fairly nice warm day and the parking lot was packed. However, once inside the park it didn't seem crowded, its such a large area. The lines weren't t bad at all, maybe 10 minutes at most. The kids loved the tubes slides and wave pool. The tried the lazy river but were told they cannot sit in the tubes they had to lay on them so they opted for something a little more exciting. They had a staff party booked in the day we were there and the tables and floors by the public lockers were littered with garbage. The rest of the park seemed clean and well maintained. There were a few options to purchase food in the park but the prices were unreal and they weren't made to order. They had a few burgers and fries under a heat lamp. They do allow you to bring a cooler in the park so I would opt to pack lunches. The newest splash pad area seemed to be geared at younger children from afar but my older children actually preffered the 3 or 4 slides there. There are several hot tubs, so if it happens to be cold you can jump in and warm up. They also have cabanas for rent, but they seem to be a large screen tent with a few lawn chairs in them. The cost to enter is quite high but if you go after 3pm you can go back the next day for free.

Went on a 62 degree day with rain, so park was pretty empty. Staff was still great to the kids, smiling and helpful through the rain. Rode all the attractions multiple times without waiting in lines. Glad it wasn't a weekend day and sunny, I hear it gets really packed.

It is very clean, employees seemed alert, Nice day. I didn't bother with the bar. You can be as daring or as boring (I just love the lazy river...) as you want. The new super trap door ride was not open yet when I went, but looks fun. The slides are always fun especially on a hot day.
