“false advertising?”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Was told that day pass offer advertised on website hasn't been available since December and "usually is not available anyway". Also informed that there was no availability for the date I wanted though I had not yet even specified the date I wanted. Hmmm....after discussing issue with a "manager", the best answer was, "oops, sorry". Not going to be going here anytime soon.

“Small but ok”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Small water park for kids under 10. We are spoiled by the Dells though! Our kids ages 8 and 10 had fun. 2 large slides only. I can't imagine being there if its crowded! We rented a room for the water park passes for 2 days over a weekend. (day passes not available on weekends) We actually went home at night as it was only 45 minutes. We did horseback riding at the local resort dan patch stables, which was great! Gentle horses for the kids and adults! Pretty scenery. And had dinner in Lake Geneva which was nice. Popeyes is always good. (Smokeys smokehouse in Timber ridge resort is absolutely terrible. Do not order the ribs which is what they claim are famous. Tough and undercooked.) We will go back when we have snow. Tubing, skiing, sleigh rides, and small water park all at the resort will be nice. Rent a room and get 2 days of passes on the weekend and still be able to go home was great! Nice people all around.

“Great place for fun close to home!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We went here for 2 nights 10-13- 10-15. We had 2 kids ages 15 years old and 6 mos and had so much fun! I think this is definitely geared towards the up to 12 age group but the 15 year old had fun playing with his little brother and the bigger slides were fun too. There is a place that serves hotdogs, pizza and chicken fingers that was nice to have while you were in the pool. The water was a little cold while we were there but tolerable. There was a lot to do for the little ones and a lazy river for the adults. I loved the fact that this is only open to those staying there and gave us a lot to do on a rainy weekend. We will be back!

“Great family resort!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

rooms are a little pricy, but worth the money! very large room! even the one bedroom! full kitchen, great for families on vacation! walmart is across 12, can easily get supplies for meals. the indoor pool passes are included in the price.

the pool area is very pricy for food and drinks.

pool was very nice and well kept for being a "childrens" area. the guards made me feel at easy and were on top of their jobs.

great place for familys, will go back when we have the chance.

“Fun but pricey”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

love that they offer a day package which includes a room for the day, and the room is a suite with a kitchen which is awesome. The package is great for families. and the kids love to swim all day. The package is a bit pricey but a great day experience
