If it wasn't for the ridiculously long lines, this place would get 5. Otherwise, it's lots of fun for both kids and adults alike. :)

Get here early, as the seats get taken up and then it is not much fun, or reserve a cabana. There can be long lines for the rides/slides on the weekend and on hot days.

Took the grand sons ages 7, 5, and 3 to this water park earlier this summer. They had a blast! Spent a lot of time just splashing around and exploring. Took the oldest over to a couple of the more tame slides and he loved them as well. Stuff to do for all ages in a well controlled environment (... More

First time visiting. Really enjoyed that they had thrill rides for the adults. Was a little disappointed with the availability for things for 8-10 ranger kids. The kid area they did have for them was difficult for a parent to keep an eye on them. The food prices are also extreme in my opinion. The gate says no food but... More

We had a wonderful day at this park. We combined the tickets for here and Knott's Berry Farm, so it worked out good value for money. Our five year old daughter absolutely loved this place and she even got on to some of the bigger slides, which she was thrilled about. We also hired a cabana, which was a welcome... More

It was a local water park by my hotel so we brought tickets at my hotel (knotts berry farm) and they were cheaper than online. The water park was a good day out but as its quite small and limited we only stayed for half a day. The food was quite expensive but the park was a good way to... More

We were astonished at the extortionate costs to hire lockers. This then meant that there were hundreds of sunbeds where everyone kept their stuff and were not available for anyone to actually use-ridiculous!

I went with my 2 1/2 year old and she had a great time. I would recommend them putting bathrooms a little closer for parents and children to the water play for toddlers. More shade would be nice too over grass area.
