Splashdown Beach definitely met my high expectations but did not exceed them. I see great potential should this place decide to expand a bit more (definitely needs another Bullet Bowl or should invest in getting another ride from ProSlide Technology Inc. on the other side of the park near Cowabunga Falls -- to spread patrons out a bit more). In addition, it feels as if all the attractions, even the lazy river, are miniatures of other water parks that I have been to. This park would greatly benefit from being more ambitious.
Aside from that, people should know that if they want to save money, do yourself a favor and go to their website and see if they have any coupons available. My brother and I bought our two tickets with the $3 off coupon per person, bringing the cost for two adults full day to $55.20. The few extra dollars we saved went toward renting a locker (costing $10 up front for a small locker with $5 refunded when you return the key).
Food quality at the park was what you would expect -- the regular theme park fare. The two of us ordered from the Nathan's hot dog stand and got two #1's (hot dog with fries) and two regular drinks, each at $5.99 and $2.19 respectively. I think our total was around $17.66 if I'm not mistaken. My brother wanted another hotdog, which set us back an additional $3.45 (including tax).
P.S. Bullet Bowl is the best, and the main reason I planned a trip to go out to Fishkill. My first time on such a "toilet bowl" ride and it didn't disappoint. Make sure to have a friend or family member with you to do two person tube on that -- and if they are an entertaining person; perfect. The wait, depending on the lifeguard, can be long.
Which leads me to my final point: Go on a weekday if you can...
