  • On any given weekend during prime season the cabanas are EMPTY due to being extremely over priced. Season pass holders don't get the discount on the expensive food and drinks. Have watched for 2...  more »

  • Overall the park is a great attraction for the outer banks area. There’s more than enough parking even on busy days. Staff is friendly if you have any questions. There’s seating everywhere look around the park with lots of umbrellas in place and you can’t forget the cabana services that comes with one free round of snacks for the group. You have a couple different food / snack options that are priced as you would assume ( couple dollars more per meal than an actual food establishment). All the pools are kept up with and clean every time we visit ( multiple times a week ) and there’s plenty of tubes for everyone to get in line for the big selection of thrill rides, which makes up almost all the rides available at the time. A decently sized family / kid zone off to the side of the park away from the other bigger attractions so you can enjoy the smaller wave pool and slides with your little ones. There’s a lot to see and do at the park, don’t just drive by, you’ve gotta take a look for yourself. Only down fall would have to be the type of rides available at the time. They all are mostly single or double tube rides. No body rides like most park have that are a little more creative and exciting than just going straight down over and over again like half the rides now. Rumors are that there is other phases in plan to expand the park. Hopefully we can get that in the future and add more entertaining rides that offers more options.
  • Horrible experience with customer service today. Tried to go to the park yesterday and were only there for a short time before a quick storm rolled through. They announced over the speaker system that the rides would be temporarily closed for inclement weather. This was just before 3pm. Looking at the radar it seemed like the storm would quickly roll through but as there is no real shelter at the park besides the bathrooms we decided to go back to my mother-in-law's house which is only 5 minutes away. We were each given a hand stamp and my children looked forward to coming back once the storm passed. At 4 the storm was clearing so we all loaded up to go back. At 415 we arrived to the park completely empty. Apparently they had decided to close the whole park down, not even a soul at the ticket booth. Unusual as the park was not supposed to close until 7. This has been a very disappointing experience because they are supposed to give you a rain check if they shut the park down for the day. If there was a chance they were going to shut the park down why were they giving out hand stamps to come back? I have yet to be able to talk to a manager even though we have been calling all morning.
