I attended this park with my husband and two children, ages four and one. It was a very nice water park. They had life vests available for the children, which I thought was necessary in the main part of the pool because it's about 2 to 3 feet deep. The baby pool was only one foot deep and had a...

This is a nice waterpark, fun for all ages, but it could be better. For example, there is no shade, anywhere, over the pool. No trees around the pool. There are sun shades (large umbrellas) for people sitting around the pool, but if you're in the water you're directly in the sun. The waterslides are fun, but aren't very high.... More

Our children (age 9 and 12) adored this place. It has two small waterslides and a large pool area with a water playground in the middle. There is also a baby pool spot and outdoor café. The place was crowded and gave me a bit of stress trying to watch my two with all of the other kids in the... More

We arrived just after opening at 11am on a very hot Sunday! We didn't have to queue for long but were surprised that we had to pay a $7 entrance fee to the park as well as the $8 plus fee per adult for the waterpark itself. Not sure if the entrance to the park would've been waived had we... More

This is a great park for kids. They have areas for toddlers (kiddie pool and sand play area), elementary age (fountains and slides in the 3.5' pool area and big slides for those over 42"), and teenagers (the big slides and deeper pool area). They only sell overpriced carnival food aside from a grilled chicken salad. If you want to... More

I guess for kids, this place is great. For the adults attempting to find seating in the shade, or anywhere for that matter, it's a pain. Seems like it is always packed. Area for eating is very small. The lines for the slide are long, long, long. Little kids cut in line all of the time...what are you gonna do?... More

Fun and affordable, which is hard to come by in this area! My son and nephews didn't want to leave! They even had the baby/toddler pools heated for my baby niece & nephew... it was an eventful day for our family....

The fees are a bit high! But our grand kids love it. The park look clean , nice place for hot summer day but we could not eat in the eating area because the place swam with flies and bees.

Haven't been in a few years but loved it when we took the kids. Good price and lots of fun. Take bug repellent if not in the water though.

Went after 4 pm on what when all admitted are $5! Less than 30 people in the whole place. Nice beach area for kids to dig in, find buried treasure. Trade in coins at service desk for prize. We looked but were unable to find any this day. Water was on cool side but clean despite the fact a busload... More
