This is a decent local park. It's crowded on the weekends, as you would expect. During the week it is very manageable. I do appreciate that the rides are operational vs. some other parks where half of them are down for maintenance. Food is OK....More

Since we stayed close by Elitch Gardens Theme Park we decided to see what the park was like. It had lots of water rides. The park was small and family oriented. We had a very enjoyable time.

Lots of fun at this classic, located next to the Pepsi Center. I would like to see the water park get more rides from other manufacturers but hey, its fun!

You cannot take your drawstring backpack on the rides. You can pay for day use lockers though.
