Water park for all

Definitely a great place to take kids all seasons. Be prepared for overcrowding and people without manners ( not the staff). Good for kids of all ages

First let me start by saying that as far as parking goes this place gets a 10. But then I'm from New York City so that's saying a lot. When you first go in if you don't have to wait almost an hour to get in the place. You will see the arcade which it looked pretty co but we... More

We went for presidents day ( that Monday )... Thank god we got a cabanna because the place was sooooo crowded but I expected that. If you must go on one of these popular weekends/weekdays a cabanna is a must. There is not enough seating for the hundreds of bodies at this location. I have been to camel back and... More

Thank you for visiting and for sharing your feedback. We definitely experienced larger-than-usual crowds this President's Day weekend and do apologize if that affected your experience. We hope you come back this summer to enjoy our 2-acre Beach Club or visit us again early on a non-holiday weekend or weekday so you can have a more intimate experience. We appreciate... More

Before I start I need to qualify this entire review as follows: WE VISITED THE PARK ON PRESIDENT'S DAY SUNDAY (2/20/17), THE DAY WITH RECORD-SHATTERINGLY WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE 70'S SO THE PLACE WAS PACKED BEYOND BELIEF (TRULY WE COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE AND THAT THE MANAGEMENT ALLOWED THEM TO BE THERE.

This place is extremely small. We were on line for almost an hour just to get in. I don't understand the logic in purchasing your tickets online and still having to go on the purchasing line at the facility. The food court was also small, not enough tables and chairs, everyone is racing for a table. Not a good experience... More

Thank you for visiting us and for sharing your feedback. We do apologize for the long wait times - online tickets do guarantee admission and are also $5 less than walk-up tickets (as an added benefit). We do hope you visit us again soon (we have an Outdoor Beach Club that is open in the summer) and have a better... More

I have visited this place a few time since it opened. At first I thought the place was new and just experiencing growing pains. The answer to this thought is clearly " not". Before I go any further let me start off by saying this place is a cash cow!! The business model must work... However, it's not my model..... More

We went to Sahara Sam with our kids ages12 and 8. We were unsure what to expect but the kids had a blast. Small in comparison to places like Great Wolf Lodge but a great time. Kids loved the surfing and family slides. It was very clean and staff was really wonderful. Also had good family deals for food at... More

Spent President's Day at Sahara Sam's and was less than impressed. I was expecting it to be crowded and it was but it seemed like the place wasn't prepared. Just getting in took 45 minutes. Once you're in good luck trying to find a chair to put your towel, While the lines for the actual attractions weren't that long the... More

Enjoyed some family fun with my kids aged 10, 8, and 4. Bought annual passes for $50/person. I think it will be worth it since we will come back to try the outdoor waterpark as well as Diggerland. We came on Presidents' Day in the afternoon and it was quite crowded. We stayed for about 2 hours just to scout... More
