They offer Military discount, 15.00 dollar wrist band. The big drink with .99 cent rfills was a good deal. the roller coaster was cool. the big wooden one that is. Foods a little pricey.

“Not Great”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

It's more of a fair. There is only one coaster and check the height requirements for the rides before buying tickets as my 49'' son was not allowed to ride the coaster. Few rides were closed and the attendant told me they did not come in since it was slow??? My kids are 6/9 so they did have a good time but this was really an over rated attraction.

“Good time.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

There are two different sections here- a water park and an amusement park (which some may consider a carnival). You can get a cheap all-day band to both for like $36 (use a coupon from those coupon books at hotels or at the mall and save more), or separate bands. The water park is open in the morning until like 5pm and then it closes, allowing the amusement park to open. The water park is extremely small, mostly a couple of speed slides and some tube rides. They do have a really nice kiddie section. You also have some select areas to lounge around. You are allowed to leave the water park and grab food, but once you leave the parking lot you have to pay to get back in. There is no food at the water park, but there is at the amusement park. The amusement park however is really big and nice. This is where you should spend your money at. There is food, rides and definitely lots of things to keep you busy.

“ride the wooden coaster!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We went to check out the new roller coaster put in this year.There were just the two of us and had a good time. I'm a fan of wooden coasters so I really enjoy the " Swamp Fox " every time I ride it...just sit near the front as the back of the train is rough!!!

“its pretty much a fair on the beach..”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

we had a great time people watching..and riding rides..its definitely geared for the little kids but is nice at night with the lights and sounds..little tip get there around six so you can ride most of the rides before the crowds come in..we got the armbands for 25 bucks for unlimited rides..except the go-karts and zipline..but was still worth the money..
