  • Super cute place for little kids. They have about 10 or so dry rides including a ferris wheel and carousel and a cool little train that goes around the whole park. They also have couple of live animals in a little barn that the kids can touch. The water park includes a kiddie pool that was a little past my ankles with a pirate ship in the middle. Kids really seem to enjoy that. Behind that was a lazy river which was my favorite and another water fun-filled pirate ship. They do have 2 large slides for bigger kids. Not a huge park, not that much walking. No adult size pools. Overall my 3 year old had a blast! Spent about $120 with entrance and food for a family of 3. Definitely would recommend!!!
  • Very nice place. I was employed there for two summers in the water park and the staff and co-workers were very friendly and supportive. As a costumer was an even better experience, food is great and rides are better. I recommend this as a summer job for teenagers and a day trip for people coming and going.
