My family and I have been visiting Big Kahunas for years and it's always a good time. There are rides for all ages. The only complaint would be the lack of healthy food options.

The water park was pretty good. Not all that clean. Was a fun day out. Would recommend getting a reserved table as you get someone to bring you food and drinks and comes with a locker.

Big Kahunas from the outside looks like the best park ever. To children, it is a great time and a fun place to be. Once you are there and start to look around, its not the most well maintained place. I would suggest going from...More
