We really enjoyed the park. My only problem was that people were smoking everywhere even though it is a non smoking park. We were picnicking under a pavilion and there were people smoking all around us. I feel like maybe there should be more signs that let people know smoking isn't allowed. My daughter has asthma so it was very upsetting that there wasn't anyone monitoring the smoking. I would love to go back but that does make me hesitant.

We would like to apologize that you ran into problems with smoking in the park. We certainly want all of our guests to be comfortable & enjoy themselves which is why we have established a few set-back smoking areas for those who wish to smoke. We have members of our management team throughout the park all day long & they would have been more than happy to assist you with this issue. We will certainly take your suggestion of more signs throughout the park into consideration when we begin to plan for next summer. We have alerted management & staff to be conscious of what is going on around them in terms of making sure that our smoking policy is being followed at all times. Having said that, we truly hope that you & your family will continue to visit us in the future as we so appreciate your continued support. Thank you!

Our family had a wonderful time. Amusement park is kept very clean, there were a lot of families but the lines weren't long because there was so much to do. The gift shop was extremely reasonable and we picked up quite a few things.

First I remember going when I was a kid and to bring my own there is just as fun. They both enjoy the wet and dry rides. They especially enjoyed Walter's Wild Slide, and Nikki (?) operating it 8/16/14 in the late afternoon made it especially fun for them.

Family had a great time. It was a chilly day so I was not packed and short lines. One staff member named Nikki was running Walters water slide, and she made it so fun for the kids!! My only complaint is that guests were smoking in non smoking areas. Staff members did not say anything to them either. Please address this with staff. Otherwise, we had a great time!!

yes the park is fun and the rides are pretty fun and you can bring coolers in the park but it needs more big thrilling rides expect for a bowl ride do not expect anything thrilling for a long time it can take 3 years to make a new ride. and they said a children's ride was open but it was not going to open until a few weeks from when i visited. and finally the park cares about it's history.
