We stayed 2 nights in the Family Leisure suite because we knew our kids (5 and 3) were too young to really enjoy the bigger rooms. Our room was just as pictured. We had to call room service though because we did not have enough towels for 5 people. We had them in about 5 minutes though. My sister, who traveled with us, decided to take a shower when we arrived since we had a long day at King's Island. Well, the drain was clogged. So we had to call again, but someone was up to fix the problem within 10 minutes. The kids really enjoyed the water park. The kid slides and the pool were the biggest hit. My husband really enjoyed the bigger water slides. We did have one issue with room service - we had asked that our beds be made up (sheets aren't fitted and just barely fit the bed, so when you wake up, the bottom sheet is around your waist and your feet are on the mattress itself). One bed was made up, the second bed, when we pulled down the blankets, the bottom sheet was still in the middle of the bed leaving the bottom half of the mattress still exposed. That was disappointing.
As far as the food, we had the breakfast buffet at the Loose Moose Cottage. It was OK. The best food on the buffet was the fried apples and the french toast stix. Everything else was lacking in flavor. Out of the 5 of us, only 1 was impressed with the buffet. We had our other 2 meals at the Camp Critter Grill which was very good. We all agreed that it was the best meal we had during our 3 days in Mason. We did get some of the fudge from the Bear Claw cafe to take home - I HIGHLY recommend it. The fudge is VERY good.
The kids really enjoyed tie-dying their own shirts at the Cub Club. They also really enjoyed story time at the clock tower. I recommend getting there very early as we were seated in the back and it was difficult to hear. We also purchased the MagiQuest game. The girls were really too young to understand the game, but had fun just seeing what everything said. Their enjoyment made it worth the $25 and now we have a wand for whenever we return.
Our favorite feature though was the balcony! We had a great view of the King's Island fireworks each night. It was nice to be able to enjoy those without having to leave the room. The biggest disappointment though...it's advertised that there's a walking path between the lodge and King's Island -- what they don't share with you is that this path is at least 1 mile long. It's a long trek back after an exhausting day at King's Island.
