Great summer fun and if you get tired of being in the water you can take a break and see the animals at the zoo great water slides and a floating pool. There are certain days that you can float on the tube and watch a movie

My girlfriend and I go here as much as we can. We love it. And it's a great time. Only compliant is that the water burns your eyes like crazy. And unfortunately if you have children they are probably gonna hear the f bomb flying. People just aren't very considerate for little ears.

Our family loves this water park! They have attractions for all ages! We also love the small rides outside at Jungle Jacks Landing and petting the sting ray at Stingray Bay!

Try a dive in movie night. It's a day and night full of fun. The variety of rides is good. Zoo membership will save on parking and getting in. Pack a cooler of food and park it while having fun and then go eat! It'll save you lots of cash.

It did not seem as if there were enough slides and other things to do to warrant the $34 price tag plus $10 parking. The lines were long and slow even though the park was no where near filled to capacity. Disappointing.

This park offers zoom passed where you get to skip the line. This made the lines really long for people that didn't purchase the zoom passes. For the water slides the workers did every other line and that takes a long time to go through. We waited in line for an hour and a half for one ride. Every time... More
