My daughter loves this place! She loves that she can go on her own on the tube and float down the canyon... Wish it was a little bigger so the adults can go too! This is an awesome place to spend with family and friends!...More

Discovery Canyon was not what I expected... (i thought it was river float that took a few hours)... its one lazy river that takes about 2-5 minutes to go down, and you do it over and over. My 9 year old loved it, and I...More

This is for kids to tube in. Unless you are 100lbs, don't bother - you WILL get grounded! My son (now 8) had a great time, both on the "river" as well as playing in the sandy "shore". The water is diverted from the river,...More

Let me start off by saying we had gone to this place about 3 years ago and it wasn't as busy so that might have been why we had more fun then. The renovations seem to have made it less fun and way slower. There...More

We had lots of fun at the beginning. But then it got really busy and kids were just stopped on the lazy river and sitting there. No staff around to tell them to get off, which was disappointing. The water is untreated, so kinda gross...More

This is a place to have fun for all ages, you can bring your own float tubes or rent very cheap at $5 per tube. There is a consession or bring your own.
