First & foremost it is important to distinguish between something that is run down and something that is dirty. Could this place use some updating, no question. But is this place dirty as some reviewers have indicated...absolutely not. The place was crystal clean and inviting. The staff were all friendly and very observant. Is the entry fee a fair price? I would say it is a bit overpriced, but the fact that this place is so quiet and no line took over 5, 10 minutes tops, it is worth the few extra bucks to not have to stand in line for 30 minutes waiting for a 30 second ride. The rides were great and just enough to keep us all busy for 5 hours before the kids were ready to call it a day. Overall, I would recommend this place for families looing for a nice day at a water park without all the hustle and bustle of a big time amusement park and the costs that go along with it. Be sure to call 518-668-0023 before buying your tickets and asking for the days discount. They'll take your name and you give it to them when you buy your tickets for the discount. Strange way of offering a discount, but this is how they do it.
