“Fun and great place!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Expect to pay for parking and entrance fee of $$. You can bring in your own food and they have lockers so you don't have to drag stuff all over all day. The lines to the slides can get a bit long on hot days. They do have a season pass for $80 which pays for itself in two trips. Usual burgers hot dogs fare if you want to buy it.

“Hot days draw crazy sized crowds”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Besides crazy sized crowds, overpriced food and the 'not a real beach' beach thing is doable, mmm, once!

“My grandchildren love it”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Great for my grandchildren enjoy going there, just wish Western Washington had better weather, myself it was okay but did like seeing children having fun in this bleak part of the state.

“Fun local amusement and water park”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

You should know what your getting into at a water park in a busy urban area. It's definately super crowded on a warm summer weekend, and still pretty busy on a warm mid-week day, but hey everyone has the same idea as you in going so how can you blame 'em. We bought seasons passes, and they turned out to be a fantastic value for a summer full of great family fun. Rides are fun and a great getaway if the slides are too nutty.

“eh”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Not exactly a big theme park but it's an outdoor water park in the pacific northwest, its fun but only for about 2 weeks in the middle of summer.
