We went to this water park on NYE, so I figured it would either be packed or pretty quiet - we lucked out and it was pretty quiet! Very short lines for the slides and no trouble finding a table for home base. As others have mentioned, if your suit has rivots on the back (front and side don't matter... More

Had the family all together for a reunion in Oregon. This was a great way to keep both kids & adults entertained & enjoying each other's company for hours. It's a bit expensive, but if you travelled all over Oregon going to less expensive places that held half the entertainment value, you'd spend much more money to fill your time.... More

While the kids had a great time flying down the slides, it is not for smaller children except the wading pool area. The water was warm and the whole area very humid. Running and screaming children were everywhere so if you are not into this, don't go. The real downside is the price - it is $40+ dollars per person!

I was impressed with a number of things at this waterpark. The staff appeared well trained & tested regularly with a "fake" drowning. They rotate the staff regularly to keep them from "getting stale". The place was spotless & clearly well run. As far as the fun factor goes, the 4 slides that originate up in the 747 mounted on...

One of a kind, a real 747 on top of the bldg that you can slide out of! A little spendy but worth it

This was our third time here. My son brought his friend and they both enjoyed while I sat this one out. The weather had been hot here the previous week but the day we visited it was a lot cooler but still the place was packed. This was the busiest I had seen it and because there was so many... More

Yup, there's a 747 on top of a building. How awesome is that?! Yet the place is so much more. Inside, you will find a wave pool (which is pretty tame as far as wave pools go...can't really bodysurf, but it is pleasant), a vortex pool that sucks you around in a whirlpool, a regular pool, and an excellent water-playground....

Kids had fun here, but expensive at $32 a person and over $50 with the museum. I did find passes at Costco for both for $39. The water park itself was very similar to Great Wold Lodge, only space theme. The slides out of the Boeing 747 were a lot of un and long. But the wait to go down... More

We did this place after spending a couple of hours at the aviation museum with my boys (age 8 and 5). They LOVED it!! It's quite a site to take in when you first enter - especially when you realize the plane on top of the building is actually the top of the slides! After a bit of exploring the... More

First of all, the place has a 747 on it's roof. That's incredibly cool. But after that it's a bit disappointing for the price. For the family of five, we paid $160 to get in including the $5 locker fee. After we got in, we discovered that those little metal rivets on the back pocket of our swimwear will prevent... More
