We had fun, but had to cut it short because my sons were shivering. Either the air or water temperature needed to be warmer. I was disappointed to pay $45+ to only be there about an hour.

It's cold outside, but not at the Splash Park! I must say that this is one of the best places to relax and watch the kids have fun in central MN! Great management with friendly life guards and helpful staff. Very satisfied!
