I used to buy season passes every year until 2011. Then I can back to visit for the summer. We got the passes again. We have been 4 times so far. It has been great for my 2 year old. The park is mainly designed for toddlers. They have 7 slides for bigger kids. Wave pool and lazy river. They have 5 dinning areas. They also have a bar with video gaming. They have golfing and batting area as well. Food and drinks are expensive but good. Bathrooms in the water park are gross!!! Slush mud water all the time. The front lobby bathrooms ear arcade are nice and clean. The kids have fun everytime we go!! Season passes are worth every penny.

Very expensive but kids love it. Needs maintenance badly. Took boy to batting cages and the slow pitch was pitching so high even standing as far back as possible. I couldn't hit and I stand 6'1". My poor boy although excited just to try it for first time got a half dozen good pitches from the $10 in tokens. Majority of the time it wouldn't even pitch at all. Instead of adding new attractions. Focus should be moved toward maintaining what you have first.

The mini golf course was what we went to enjoy. The course was fun, though there were a large number of places on the course where the artificial green was torn and worn. Water features were not working, no water, looked like they had been defunct for a few seasons. Overall, though, we really enjoyed ourselves and had a great game. We only played one of the two complete 18 hole courses.

Absolutely wonderful place. There is so much to do for every age. The staff was nice and friendly. The only thing that I didn't like was the bathrooms were not very clean and they did not smell good at all. Other than that, great place to take your family.

Kids enjoyed it. This place is getting dated and the maintenance or lack there of is slacking to say the least. Lifeguards they have did a great job!!! But look around if you go there we’re empty lifeguard seats and there were slides that had no life guards and I’m talking slides for the kids to get on. Parents were running the slide and making kids wait their turn. Only one lifeguard at the top of the hill? Not safe!!!! Limited floats as there shared between the wave pool and the lazy river which could use some serious maintenance. Over this place needs a lot of maintenance! So much potential!!!!
