Owner description: Classic amusement park combined with a water park and Boogie Beach wave pool.
Reviewed 6 September 2017

Our plan was to do both the water park and rides in one day, and this park is small enough to do most of it. The kids we brought (ages 7 & 11) wanted to spend most time at the water park, so we went there first. It's a 15-20 min hike from the gate, and by the time you change into swim suits, that'll take at least 30-40 min. I saved $3 by buying tickets online, and bought 3 All Day Dining (ADD) passes online at $29 each which include "an entree and a side every 90 min" figuring we 4 could share food, but then found out only 1 food stand in the water park accepts the ADD pass. Also, ADD pass does not include drinks or treats like ice cream. The chicken tenders basket includes 4 pieces of meat on top of a MOUND of fries or rings that we could not finish. (There is 1 salad you can order, but the plan was to share food.) When clouds moved in about 3pm, we switched over to the rides. I let the other adult and 2 kids eat at 5:30, and then I planned to get bratwurst at 7pm. When I asked at 7pm where to buy bratwurst, the park employee told me those restaurants had already closed, well before park closing time! So much for "All Day" dining. So I had a cardboard-like slice of pizza and a bread stick. The souvenir bottle of free refills is probably worth the $11 price if you bring it back to the park for a 2nd visit. Smart families were eating an early 11am lunch in the parking lot and carrying in water bottles. The park employees are mostly young and not excited about working there, but a very kind manager at Coasters restaurant let us in as she was locking the door at closing so we could order 1 more food basket, but I still lost money on the ADD plan. The grandkids had fun, so that's the important thing.

Awesome as always. Hadn't been here in 20 years. Yearly family trip at different places all over the country, this had been planned for a year. We had a minor issue with one of the tickets not scanning but that was corrected. Staff was very helpful. Lots of fun by everyone!

Call ahead for late summer trips to make sure ALL the water rides are working. Little disappointing that two of the larger water rides were shut down. Other than that great trip, clean park, lots of variety to choose from.

Maybe we would have like this place more if we had come on a warmer day, since the ticket includes rides and waterpark. For just the amusement park the $30+ ticket, plus the $13 parking didn't seem worth it. The park wasn't very crowded, but because most of the roller coasters only had one coaster going at a time the wait seemed a bit long for such short rides.
Most of the roller coasters are smaller, which is great for kids or adults that don't like the bigger rides. There are also one or two big one, for the more adventure seekers. So it was a nice mix for our family. So in conclusion, it's not a bad park, just average.

We took our pre-teen grandsons and they had a blast especially at the water park. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is clean. Food and drink are pricey though and youre not allowed to bring your own
