“NICE WATER PARK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

This water park is very quiet and small, it's very relaxing for younger kids who like to play under the bucket, walk or swim in the lazy river and play in the wave pool. There are other slides for older children and adults but the lines for those were extremely long. Parking is very difficult when the park is full as it was when I visited. Overall I would say that it's a very nice water park and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something small and quiet to pass the day.

“Go for half price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

If you wait until after 3pm on weekdays and 4pm on weekends you pay half price for admission. This still leaves you with three to four hours in the waterpark which is plenty of time. Because most people leave between 3 and 4 the lines become minimal and it is easy to ride everything multiple times. And you avoid the heat of the midday!

“Relaxing place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

If you are used to Aquatica or Disney water parks like we are, this might be a disappointment. We visited last week on our stay at a Jekyll. It's very small, a wave pool, lazy river and two water slides that you will spend a very long time (30-40 minutes) waiting in line to go on a quick 20 second slide down. Not worth it at all. The wave pool allows floats which was kind of dangerous because it gets very packed with people and it's hard to keep track of your little ones. The waves are very strong at the entry of the pool, so we saw (and it happened to our daughter as well) kids on their floats getting knocked over hard onto the concrete floor of the pool and getting hurt. The lazy river is just that, lazy and relaxing.

It's not a bad water park, it is something different to do on the island, just don't expect a lot. The park is kept very clean. There is a Larry's sub on the premises to eat which was nice since no food, snacks or drinks other than water are allowed in the park. Plenty of places to get ice cream and snacks. All reasonably priced too!

Oh, by the way the showers are ICE COLD! So if you are planning to wash all the chlorine off, I would suggest going back to your hotel.

Overall, it's at most a half a day break from sightseeing. The admission should be $10 a person for what you get!

“Fun day at the park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We had a very fun day at the water park. My 5- year old son and 18-year old daughter could do their own thing and both were entertained. The wave pool was fun and my son loved the kid play area.
