Excellent small manageable park for preschool/elementary crowd (up to 3-10 y.o.) It has both water park and "dry" rides, as well as a small petting zoo and other activities. Not too crowded, even on July 4th weekend. Word of warning: cash or Discover ONLY

I think a 7 - 13 year old would love the water part of the park - all the slides would be fun/accessible. As for the dry/mechanical rides, the 13 year old may be too big to ride quite a few. There would still be a... More
