Amazing because the water is heated, great place for family fun for the little ones. It's indoor so no one gets sun burnt. Also they have margaritas and beers on the 2nd floor that overlooks the park!

Hot and muggy. Not for older children. If you want to waste your time and money this is the perfect place to go. After going you will need to stop at the liquor store across the entrance to drink that bad experience away.
