The park is clean and the rides are in good shape. Buying your tickets online is much cheaper than buying them at the gate, and the all inclusive package is more than worth the $150 you pay for it. If you don't get the all...More

Went with the family for two days to experience the rollercoasters and water park. The longest line we waited in was only for 40 minutes but every line after that was less than 15 minutes. Recommend going during the week for smaller crowds

Park has a lot of potential to be a great destination but the lack of pleasant employees as well as letting you in early if you stay in the campground but half the park is closed. Not sufficient employees in water park to regulate out...More

Free parking is a biggie . It outlines them on the website in a chart . Go to the bottom and you'll see what gold gets that silver doesn't . Without researching - I believe it's free parking .

There are 3 sizes. We paid $27 and that's just ridiculous. However, once you get over the price, the convenience is worth every penny. Also, for food, they sell a "family bucket" special: a bucket of chicken fingers, a... More

Yes you can, and there are lockers throughout the park that you HAVE to rent when you ride some of the rides. Fury 325 is one of those rides.
