It has some nice attractions but definitely not worth any long lines. I do like their mini donuts. Like I always say, families go in with smiles and leave exhausted and grumpy. Trust me. Four hours is about enough at that place. Overpriced.

Well worth the visits. My family of 3 has season passes. You will need some cash for tube rentals, if you’re visiting the water park otherwise Cards are accepted most everywhere else.

When the employees arrive they welcome you with smiles and kindness. It has fun for all ages and the place is beautiful. Travel from Puerto Rico to visit Iowa, the city is beautiful.
