This is one of the best water parks I have been to in awhile. The slides are awesome. The wait in the lines were not that bad. The concession food was good. Parking was a bit crowded but very organized. I would definitely recommend this...More

The lazy (a.k.a. sunset) river is for all ages, particularly kids. If you bought a go-card, you can visit Knott's Berry Farm and the soak city on the same day.

This place is fun but quite honestly, it is a bit run down. The stairs going up to the slides are all rusted out and made me nervous to be on them. They were literally falling apart in some places. Just didnt seem very safe.

Admission price is great. The rides have long lines in middle of summer (as is expected), but love that you can get in lazy river and cool off anytime. The large raft on water slide was my favorite- almost didn’t stand in hour long line...More
