  • Had an awesome time! It was so nice to “Feel Normal” again for a change. I felt that Adventureland (AL) did a sufficient job of being “COVID-19” responsible without making it feel smothering. I...  more »
  • We were here on August 7th as to no one was wearing mask but the workers. Here comes August 12, my fiancé said his throat started to itch. The next day, the 13th, I woke up with the worst cough. I am....  more »
  • This park is really great! It's a great way to beat the heat after starting the day at the amusement park. And it shuts down before the amusement park giving time for a few rides on the way out :) As a water park, it really does have everything. Lazy river, poolside bar. Slides with and without inner tubes. Crazy drop slides. Toilet bowl slides. Water fall slides. Oh and the wave pool is great and the obstacle course and kiddie pirate play area. A super great time for family fun. If you do rent tubes for the lazy river and wave pool, know that they are not allowed in all pools (The bar). Also keep an eye on your tube if you want your deposit back. It seems kids and some adults are not aware there is a rental fee and will take them if they think you're not using yours.
  • We decided to go on a Tuesday, which ended up being a good idea. Only waited in one line the whole day. I think 3 of the rides were closed due to maintenance. This could be a good thing or bad depending on how you look at it. Yes, maintenance was being done. Hopefully ensuring a safe ride for years to come. On one hand there isn't a lot of rides, so it is disappointing that three were closed at the same time. It is good to see that the park is adding new rides from the last time I was there. Price seems a little high for what you get especially since you also have to pay to park. I think I speak for a lot of people when I saw beware of the wooden coasters. They are a pretty ruff ride. I think I had whip lass for a week after.
