“Beautiful and lots of fun”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Very beautifully landscaped rides were fun they had umbrellas so you don't cook waiting. Food was not bad for a tourist attraction. Lockers & meals aren't cheap just be prepared. Great time had by all.

“Fun in the sun”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Enjoyed a great time here. New slide this summer. Hubba bubba highway is my personal favorite. Leisurely rides as well as thrill rides. Clean bathroom and shower facilities.

“Great Family Time!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Went to the park on Friday, 6/13, and arrived around 11. Parking is $15, but we were able to park close to the park entrance. Upon entering we rented a small locker for $13, whole day rental. If you bring in a bag to put in the locker, make sure it will fold up. The larger lockers are $18. Next time we go we will get a locker further in the park and not at the entrance. The park is large with a lot of walking so be prepared. There are places to put your shoes at each ride entrance. The park was very well maintained and clean. All of the employees we came across were nice and pleasant. There are plenty of food options in the park as well as stores that sell souvenirs, water shoes, sunscreen, etc. We had lunch in the park and it was decent. This is an amusement park though so things are not cheap. There is a large variety of water rides and plenty for everyone including babies and toddlers. If you have the souvenir drink cup from Busch Gardens or any of the other parks owned by them, you can use it at this park as well.

“Depends on your preferences”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I'm a pass member but I don't like the long lines for the rides. On a hot day, the last thing I want to do is spend an hour in line for a 30 second ride. I spent the day floating on the lazy river or hubba hubba highway. My children, 9 & 16, would rather swim at the hotel pool than go to the park so we've never gone back. It really just depends on your preferences.

“Good for the kids”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My family and I have been here twice. The park has lots of options for children with several shallow pools and small slides for 5 and under.
