“Liked it A Lot - Nice Getaway”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

HWent here with family and friends. It's in a cut spot so it's away from the major city. About two hours away from where we were staying but a nice drive.

You pay for your admission as soon as you get there and then get on a truck that takes you to the grounds. It's a nice scenic route.

Once you get there you get there you can either swim in the pool, in the river water, visit the waterfall, or shop for souvenirs. I personally didn't go up to the waterfall but I swam in the river water. It's COLD! Also a bit murky, it was hard to see clearly through it. The rocks at the bottom I could do without.

The river water is good for the kids, not that deep, I think a little over 4ft at the most. There were a lot of people and be sure to be careful on the big kids playing around your little ones.

If you want a seat, get there early. Whole families take over the seating around the water.

It's a nice place to swim and cool off and a break from the city. Would recommend it.

“Zip lining and Falls”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The zip lining and falls were awesome! A lot less crowded than Dunn's river falls. We had Mario, Dillon and Dane(maybe Zane, not 100%). They were fun, funny, energetic and made sure we were safe. We also got an impromptu tour through the falls by a local who took a ton pictures of us with our camera and help us navigate through the falls. That included jumping off the rocks and rope swing. Be prepared, the water is freezing! Although, he never peddled for a tip, we gave him a generous one for his assistance!

They have lockers to store your things (1$).

“What a blast”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The day trip to YS was a refreshing change to cooler water. A bit daunting at first but the guides were very helpful and I quickly felt at ease having my small 10 year old in the water on the swing.
