I personally haven't been in awhile, but my husband and kids wouldn't consider it a trip to the beach in the summer without a stop at The Big Kahuna!!

Our son loves this place.... Great water park for our needs and you can't beat deals on a season pass... Lockers available for rent to stow your goods, food available to fill the void. We always have a good time.

This park is one of the original water parks, and added miniature golf, go carts, and other carnival rides over the years. Our family has enjoyed going here for almost 40 years. But many of the attractions are suffering from wear over the years and need to be refreshed.

This place is great for families. They have something for all ages. I would definitely recommend. It costs $5 to park. Also be sure to find a $4.00 off coupon in the life's a beach publication.

I went to Big Kahuna years ago and as i cannot comment on what it is like right now, i can comment that it was a great waterpark, so fun and such great memories created. The family loved it and would recommend to young people and families. The chilli fries were absolutely delicious. Loved it.
