From company outings to birthday celebrations, Sandcastle creates occasions everyone will remember with private VIP cabanas to tents for larger gatherings and plentiful food options with our professional service staff. With attractions like Thunder Run, Lazy River, and Wet Willie's Water Works for children, Sandcastle has something for everyone!

While the size of the park and the variety of water slides and activities is impressive, we were more than unimpressed with the lack of cleanliness in the water on the slides and specifically in the lazy river. We have not returned since...
