Yes, I know that's normal these days, just seemed to be an exceptionally large amount of unhappy employees. Avoid the food if at all possible,... More

A waterpark with all the amenities. Be as active or as laid back as you like. So many different activities that no one in the family will be bored.

This is normally a great water park and still is but the main lazy river was closed in need of repair and the walk thru cave was down witch was disappointing hopefully the repairs will be finished by 2017 but even still we had a good time if repairs were complete I'd give it a five

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.
