Seemed very similar to Aquatica in Orlando and Wild Adventure in Georgia. The huge bucket in the children's area was not working but the kids had lots of fun anyway.

This is a great family place and wonderful place to spend a hot summer day. Love that there is even places for young kids. They have lockers, rental huts, cabanas, and plenty of places to enjoy a relaxing fun day. Food is okay!
