The water park was pretty good. Not all that clean. Was a fun day out. Would recommend getting a reserved table as you get someone to bring you food and drinks and comes with a locker.

Big Kahunas from the outside looks like the best park ever. To children, it is a great time and a fun place to be. Once you are there and start to look around, its not the most well maintained place. I would suggest going from...More

Always nice to have something for entertainment besides swimming. Putt putt golf is fun for all ages. No wait when we arrived and pricing was in point. I would recommend bug spray though.
