Stayed here several times over the years. Recent multi- million dollar renovation to the Lodge, built in 1936 as America's first destination ski resort. World class skiing, indoor and outdoor year 'round ice skating, and too many activities to mention.

It is a small water park, clean, safe and interesting. Only 2 attractions and a nice wave pool. The water is cold and some kids might not enjoy. We stayed there 3 hours and the price is quite fair.
