  • Three stars for this water park. Mostly clean environment, family friendly food options. A big plus; they give Military discounts. The reason for three stars are: 1: There are almost no lifeguards on duty. The ones that are, look like they absolutely hate their job. This is definitely no Great Wolf Lodge. 2: There are several slides that are out of order, or in need of major maintenance. 3: Extremely pricey for an a water park of this size, and with non functional rides.
  • Great place for family fun and relaxing. A bit 💲 but if you go for the whole day or almost the whole day totally worth it. One thing I wish they would have is the height requirements at the bottom of the stairs so kids can measure up before climbing all the way up with the possibility of having to turn around and come down because they are to small to go alone.
