It was a nice facility. It was fairly clean. Could have used a little more updating. But there are lots of good venue spaces and outside and indoor activities. For sure some of the staff might improve a little bit

No wonder why this place has almost gone out of business several times .... The service is awful, especially for the fitness center, not only is the part-time staff incompetent so is the director!

Clean park, large paring lot, easy to get to, much variety and not real expensive. You can pay for each attraction separate. Large arcade. Go carts and bumper boats etc. NO DISLIKES !
