  • Came here for opening water park weekend. We arrived when the park opened. It was really easy to find parking as the lot was mostly empty. Getting through the season ticket line was a little slow but we managed. They opened more lines as soon as we were called up to the window. Security was a breeze and we were off to the rides. We rode Northern Lights twice before they decided to shut it down for some reason. Steel venom also kept having issues as well. Hopefully they can iron out the kinks because it won't be a very good experience when the park is full during the summer. A number of my favorite places to eat were also closed. I would assume due to the early part of the season? Everything is really expensive. It's nice that the place is cashless but plan ahead. We did the season water bottle pass. It pays for itself very quickly on hot days. Though soak city was just opening nearly all the water slides were closed... disappointing. The kids really enjoyed the splash pad and wave pool though. Mad mouse or whatever it is called could use some major efficiency upgrades. Lots of waiting around on that one. The wave, carousel, antique cars, wild thing, eagle flying ride, and a few others all went off without a hitch. We'll be back. Hopefully they can iron out the problems for next time.
  • The crew was very friendly and courtesy. Made great memories and the highlight of the summer. The park was very clean and the lines short. Great way to spend on a day off. Definitely be back next summer if not before. Buy tickets on line to avoid delay when you arrive. They do not take cash so card only. Have fun!
