Took a group of 25 teenagers (13 - 14) to Sahara Sam's in June of 2014 and we were very happy with our trip. They have several different areas geared to various age ranges and swimming abilities and the staff were helpful, smiling, and jovial. I forgot to bring release forms with us for the Flow Rider and Dan (manager) went above and beyond to help out.

We went on July 4th, 2014. It was very crowded and took long time to get inside park. Need to find way yo speed up this process. The water was nice and warm as usual, but it was too cold to stay inside. I felt cold air blowing on me while standing near waterworks area. Outdoor pools are a nice addition and greatly improve the experience.

Take this any way you want but my advice is truthful and intended to be helpful to civil and well behaved family folk...It was nice from 10-2
After that, the folks who don't wake up till noon come in for the 1/2 day admission at which point it gets louder and less relaxing. You really notice the changeover! Their kids scream ear piercingly loud as they seem to crave attention. Of course, pretty soon, the life guards have to blow their whistles to stop their unsupervised kids from running and hurting themselves for the eventual lawsuit. I've never seen a person wade right into a pool in cut off heavy denim blue jeans before today, but it brought a smile to my face. I think the staff works very hard and it is VERY CLEAN ...and I am picky about clean water, clean floors etc. You can not bring in "outside food or drinks"...this ensures that you have to remortgage your home to pay $3.75 for a bottle of water or soda. Most meals are $10. - $14. for cheese steaks, burgers, fish & chips etc...A basic meal of sandwich, fries and beverage is about $15 - $18. per person! A member of our family had a rum type summer drink and said it was great! It was not dangerous or short staffed today (Tuesday). To be honest, I had a nice day...not Disney nice, but ok for the price of admission.

We do hold special promotions on food, like $2 hot dogs on Mondays in July, and also recommend purchasing a season pass to receive special discounts on food and beverages at our park!

Went there after reading the reviews & was glad that we did. Its a great place for folks to go & have some water fun with their kids. They have various activities for kids of almost all ages except for say younger than 2 years(though i did see people with babies).

what I liked about this place was, clean bathrooms & changing rooms, they have ample lockers. They also have a mini arcade. They have decent variety with food too.

The water activities are in two zones, Indoor & outdoor. They have very nicely controlled the water temperature at Indoor so any season it should be same fun. Outdoors are good for warmer days.

Will sure be visiting more regularly.
