Love that this theme park is also a water park! You can literally go on a water slide and if you want to dry off you can get in line for a coaster! Definitely recommend bringing lots and lots of sunscreen!

Our family visited and must say we had a blast. There was plenty for the kids to do and kept them going all day. Price was fair considering it covered both places. Would definitely recommend coming to spend a day.

We have gotten season passes for a few summers now. They need better trained staff and lots of updating to their rides and pools. The lifeguards need to monitor their areas more throughly.

Dirty, things didn't work, kid asleep and looked and acted as if it was a bother to be there. Many rides looked as if they had NOT been maintained
