"Great day with the family"

Went with my husband and two sons. Had a blast. Water was a little chilly for my liking but it was fine for my husband and boys. Read that they rented towels, they do not. So bring towels. If traveling via air, go to the local dollar store for some towels so you don’t have to worry if they don’t fit in the suitcases going home. Very clean, rest rooms could use some updating but would definitely go back.

We've been coming to this park for 18 years as a group...even when it was called soak city. We seem to have little hiccups every time we come. This year was the worst. It started when they canceled our original date, well after I had everything organized...permission slips, buses scheduled, work coverage, etc. I scrambled to find another date and when I did, the person that had been helping me via email said we were good to go for that date. So we show up, and they said they had no records of us for that date. Didn't matter how many times I showed the person the email that says that, they pretty much said without a confirmation, you are not getting in. Was I supposed to hang on to 65 middle school kids in the parking lot? They really didn't seen to care. So I made a big stink about it, and maybe after half hour, they got a hold of the person that I had been in contact with. We got our tickets. They obviously don't need our money, so next year, after 18 years, will be traveling somewhere else. Too much trouble.

Place was everything that can be expected from water park. It was just the right size for my 7, 8 and 12 year daughters. We were able to do all of the attraction and and rides in about 5 hours. The only reason I would not give it a 5 would be the food. I made the mistake of buying the over priced meal plan. It is not worth tge orice. Did not read the fine print and found out later that only some selected food are covered and you are given a time frame in which you are allowed get the food. Food was pretty bad, even for amusement park standards. But we still enjoyed our day and plan to return next summer
