Thanks for the memories. Used to come here everyday as a kid/teenager. Sorry to see you go. Always had so much fun here. Loved the tube river slide. Could spend hours here.

Just driving by, you can tell this is no major waterpark with the latest and greatest rides. It is good for an afternoon of sliding, especially if you have kids. The park is dated, but still very functional. $15 for an adult pass is pretty...More
