This will be a very normal inside waterpark. They provide towels. Since the waterpark is fairly small you really only need about 5 hours of it. My 11 & 12 year old was done with it after about 5-7 hours total over the course of the week.

I liked the way this water park was set up. Hardly anyone else was there, and we had the whole place to ourselves. Temps outside were mid-thirties, so the indoor/outdoor hot tub was especially relaxing. Towels are on-site and this park has am indoor lazy river, a couple of water rube slides, and a central pool area with basketball hoop.
