It's good

Perfect for hot days. Very sensitive for weather though, so plan accordingly. We have a season pass so it's fun to go often

As a military family we appreciate anything for us to do on post for recreation. It's inexpensive, close, and great for getting the kids out of the house. That being said, it's not family friendly when a bunch of rude civilians are allowed to create chaos and make a mess and NO ONE who works there cares. My five year... More

It's a place to cool off, yet there are too many people/kids at one time. Place needs to be bigger with larger adult area.

Summary first (full narrative below, if you want details). SUMMARY - 1. A prominently posted "NO REFUNDS" sign was displayed, so there was no confusion on that point. 2. We certainly realize that the staff has no control of weather condition OR duration. 3. We fully understand the need for inclement weather procedures and "safety first" considerations. 4. I CERTAINLY... More

The water park is on a military installation so prepare ahead of time if you are not military. In order for a non-military affiliated person to gain access you must visit their website online. They will conduct a background check that could take up to two weeks. If you have military friends then you can just get them to sponsor... More

This water park seems to be the best in Columbia. It has a lazy river (3 1/2 ft), a splash pad and shallow pool area for toddlers and then the larger pool that goes from a few inches to 4' at the highest. They have 3 larger water slides off to the side and 2 smaller ones near the larger... More

This is a great place to hang out and enjoy the fun and sun. It's on Ft. Jackson so you have to be able to access Ft. Jackson to get to the water park. Memberships are the best way to go if you live local and think it is something you would do. There is a baby pool and splash... More

I'm not sure what the other poster's consider good value for your money. I think this place is over priced, I can get 3 pizzas at little ceasers for less than what they charge here and it taste better too. I recommend bringing food in a cooler, keep it in your car though because they do not allow outside food... More
