“Well run and lots of fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We have taken two young children for three years now and always have a great time. There is lots to do and safety is a big concern with a break every hour to clear the pool and help the kids wind down and snack.

“Babies poop in pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Nice park but 3 times they closed for an hour to clean up mess. I try not to go back. They need to disallow babies in diapers.

“Fun, but crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The Water mine is clean and a nice neighborhood water park, especially for very young children. However, it is very crowded on weekends and Holidays. There is a long wait outside of the facility because it fills to capacity, which is difficult for the young children who enjoy it the most.
We also experienced the shut downs mentioned by other users. That tries your patience after waiting for a long time to get in. The Water mine is used by summer camps for excursions and that seems to work better since they go during the week.
