  • Water park is fantastic, brought my 8 year old daughter and her 3 friends they had a blast. They loved the typhoon. Then went on the blizzards 4 times.

  • Was great for my 3&4 year old and my husband ! Loved that there was a water park to cool down in ! The rides are kinda old but they are classics ! The tickets are reasonable ! Buy 2 tickets get 1 free. We purchased 4 and got 2 free. Loved the lifeguards in the kiddie pool they were very on top of their game and observant. Price of a refillable cup was $22 the same as a ticket tho was kinda crazy. Workers were all very nice.
  • Took my Autistic daughter her on a whim and it was an amazing day! the staff were all super friendly, and accommodating to her mobility issues, Kind of a small park, but it has a lot to offer. rides for every age and interest. The 4:00 PM dance Party was super fun and the had my daughter out there dancing in the crowd. Well worth the admission and the drive.
