“Great fun but watch the kids”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Lazy river, waterfalls, slides, pizza - what's not to like on a hot summer day. It can get packed so go on a weekday if possible - but on weekends watch the kids because it gets a bit frenetic.

“Great family spot!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

This is a nice waterpark to take your family. It is always clean and the lifeguards are attentive. Tip: Get there early to get a good spot, or go later in the day. There can lots of day campers there and it can get crowded very quickly! There is a good snack shop with several different food options.

“Well run and lots of fun.”
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”
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.
