It was a rainy day, so we brought the grandkids (ages 1-5) here. It was a good choice for kids that age, with a variety of water slides and other activities. There were plenty of guards who were very attentive and who gently enforced the very reasonable rules. All the staff members were pleasant and the snack bar was reasonably priced. It's a little hard to find the entrance---it is in the first drive behind the hotel entryway. Discounts are available for nearby residents and for admission after 3:00 p.m.

We took our grandchildren (and son) here for an overnight. It's attached to the Holiday Inn, so you just walk over to the water park from your room. Although this particular indoor water park is a bit smaller than some of the others, we were impressed by the number of life guards on duty. It's pretty obvious they are concerned about the safety of their guests. Our 13 and 10 year old had a lot of fun on the water slides and other "stuff". There is a hot tub cave for the adults...no one under 18 allowed in there. When I commented to the manager that the temperature was way too high in my opinion (we have had a hot tub ourselves) they looked into it right away and adjusted it for us. It wasn't at all crowded and that was nice. No lines to wait in for the slides like a few others we have taken them to. I found it to be very clean and everyone we encountered was pleasant and friendly.

small waterpark good for kids. not so much for adults coz there were only 2 big slide. our stay was okay but next time we will not do overnight but rather just day pass. the price is not worth it for the purpose of using the waterpark

We decided to take our kids (11, 9, 7 & 4) for a day trip from Cleveland to the Splash Universe in Dundee, Michigan. We were able to get a $13.99 day pass rate via the water parks Facebook page. The front desk was nice enough to let us walk through and decide if it would be for us Lazy river, two bug slides and the staple for all water parks, the gigantic barrel of water and tree house. My wife and I noticed the lack of upkeep immediately in the bathroom/changing room (all one, not separate rooms). Rusted out shower heads and floors that didn't look they had been tended to in days. Now mind you we entered at 10am and park had maybe 8 people in it. We personally witnessed 3 children injured due to loose grates as well as delinquent parents drinking beer at 10:15 in the morning. I don't even think that is legal?!? Our kids enjoyed themselves and we decided to enjoy lunch at the snack bar. Reasonably priced at $12.50 for a whole pie, but the product fell way short of spectacular. Cheese hadn't even melted and dough was gummy. I will commend the amazing workers (young man, brown buzz cut, glasses and a young lady with brown hair) were extremely apologetic and remade pie and tossed in fresh baked cookies as a recovery piece. Greatly appreciated and the one true positive we will take away from this establishment. The last straw for us was when ny daughter came to us and said someone pooped in the lazy river!!!
Upon confirmation, we packed up and left. While returning the key for the locker, I half jokingly mentioned that "yea, doodie in the pool cut our day short". No apology, no nothing..
A small scoff by the counterperson & $5 deposit return and we were out of there.

Good location right off the highway. Cabelas across the street. As a family we had fun doing both:) Room was clean. Waterpark was too. Price was reasonable.
