“Fun Day in the Sun Waterworld!!!!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Bought the season pass at the end of last year which took us over the the whole season this year. For the price of 2 trips we bought season passes, What a great deal!! We could go as many times as we wanted. Just pay for parking about 10 bucks a day and lazy river here we come! First we did all the scarry rides and yes my 8 yr old grand daughter did get a little teary eyed on the big water side that went inside the tube. I was not thrilled about going on it, but she wanted to. So we did and it was a little much for her. Then she wanted to go on the the huge U shaped big drop thing. We saw kids carrying their tubes back down the stairs as they changed their mind once they got to the top. I made her go first as there was no way I was going to go first if she chickened out. Dog gone it. She did not chicken out so grandma had to go. I guess if I didn't have a heart attack doing that I have a good heart. She liked it and I only did it cause I wanted her to be proud of me. But I didn't like it. I like lazy river and the wave pool. I could stay there FOREVER!!!! The park is kept clean and safe and we observed staff putting a real looking baby doll into the lazy river to test the employees awareness. I was impressed with the responses I saw. Seems really well run and they have plenty of bathrooms and shower areas for showering off after being in the treated water all day. We went many times over the summer and loved it. Will probably always be a season pass holder even though I live with a swimming pool. Still like lazy river and people watching. LOVE IT!!!!

Watched the park security yell at a family today. Not sure what was happening but you should NEVER represent yourself that way when you work for a company. The security guards name is Jake and his behavior was appalling!

“Fun but crowded”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We got there just a little after it opened and already all the chairs were taken. We didn't actually go on alny waterslides but enjoyed the wave pool and the lazy river. We felt it was alittle expensive for what it was.
