We drop the teenagers off frequently and have for years. Family get together's are great to have her, and tons of fun and reasonably priced.

A little crowded on a hot day but the lazy river keeps everyone moving nicely. Kids like the wave for boogie boards. Not a lot of shade if they are busy. Take a hat and two towels per person--one to sit on.

We got coupons so for the amount we spent it was ok value. Not a lot of slides and fairly full with kid camps which made for some unruly behaviour. We spent 2 hours there and kids got bored quickly. The food venue on site...More

Dollar for dollar it's a good deal if you get a groupon. $20 isn't bad if you have small kids. In fact it's a GREAT watermark for Younger kids because it's easy to keep an I on them! The lazy river gets pretty crowded and...More

The park is pretty crowded and it's hard for the adults to find a seat (and the kids an inner tube). Until August 11th the park is open weekdays and that's the best time to go. After the 11th it goes to weekends (most local...More

Yea admission is a low price, but that's because it's a lame place. So tiny. Too crowded. Kinda ghetto. Just skip it. The only reason why I didn't give it a "1 star" is because we were only there for 10 mins & wanted to...More

It's a fun place for the kids. There is a fun little splash pad and climbing area for the younger kids which is nice since not all kids like to go on water slides. The pool area is nice too! I wish the shallow area...More

Great place to take the grandkids and friends for a fun day in the sun. Lots of places to sit and relax while the kids run amuck. Groupon usually has value savings during the summer.

It is small compared to Raging Waters type parks, in the middle of town, but the kids absolutely had a ball. It is clean, and well staffed with life guards, plenty of parking.

I took my grandsons here for the day last summer. It's a popular spot and there were a lot of kids and parents. It was pretty fun and I even tried the wave thing. I think I lasted about 2 seconds!

Says you can't bring food in or coolers but there were people there with their own food and coolers. We brought in water. If you can avoid the food I would suggest you do. It was pretty awful.
