Thrill-seekers can indulge in the three classic wooden roller coasters, a signature attraction. Don't miss the site's water park, which offers water slides, wave pools, and what's claimed to be the world's longest water coaster rides.

  • Great looking park! The landscaping is outstanding! Overall a wonderful experience for my family My only complaint.......there was a lack of efficiency on the ride. I know they have to check for safety and ensure everything is in order. However I am basing this on many other parks I have been to. Seems that the staff at other locations tend to get the rides moving quicker.
  • A beautiful park. I really enjoyed it. The roller coasters are really thrilling. The park is great for wooden coaster fans especially, although their newest is a steel coaster and a fun ride, even though its a bit of a trek back in the park. I do love the free soda and sunscreen...both helpful on the very warm summer day. Their resources for people with disabilities are helpful too. There are some family restroom options and a helpful page on their website about sensory friendly spaces.
