Shliterbahn is a good place to hang out with the kids but the water is so hot it's like a hot tub! Otherwise it's great all around lines aren't to long and has great food

Been to several water parks. This one does not have the high thrill rides that some parks have but the scenery & stay-cool factor are tops. You spend most of your day wet since you float to almost every ride. Best lazy river of any water park I've seen. It has a section with really fun rapids. Great food too.

We loved this park! Everyone was nice. Tubes are comfortable. No standing in lines. Rides were fun. There is nothing bad to say about this park. I have read that it's small but it looked like they were expanding it. All rides were functional on the day of our visit. I just wished we knew the beach was at the end of the walk way :-(
The resort seemed like it was going to be way too expensive when it opens!!

The staff were really nice and the lines were short. I love the fact that you can take your cooler in and leave the items unatteneded and everthing is still there when you get back.

While I MUCH prefer Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, this is a great place to spend a few hours. Even though it was on the weekend, it wasn't too crowded until later in the day. I love that you can sit in your tube while waiting in line for activities. I didn't spend any time in the 'kiddie area', but the castle looked like fun. I didn't think any of the rides were very fast or scary, so they should appeal to most anyone. Lots of places to sit in the shade, and a great shopping area with a nice clearance section on tshirts. The beach is down a walkway, not more than a 5 min stroll. Free parking, free tubes, bring your own food, you just can't beat a place like this!
