I was surprised to find out you had to rent the tubes to go in the lazy river. After paying the hefty parking and admission, the tube rental price seemed absurd. The teenagers had a good time, although two of my nieces had their flip...More

We brought one of those children's pop up tent and they allow those. I'm not sure what you mean by tent, if you mean like a camping tent, I suggest you call them. I'm not sure about the lawn chairs either, but we get there... More
