"Worth the money"
August 2019
Tripster saved me $80 for tickets. With 40 water slides $35 for a 6 and 7 year old was awesome. The grandchildren loved the wave pool. I made them wear life vests. We all had a great time.

Great for the whole family! Fun way to keep cool in the summer. Fun rides, decent food. This Place was very busy hough during the time of the year that we went. We would def go back if in the area. Again fun for all ages from little toddlers to adults. Great way to enjoy the summer. Bring water shoes though some of the slides are far apart depending on what slides you want to go on.
