This was a welcome reprieve after spending several days on the beach in the hot sun. Kids have been here several times and always want to go at least once per summer. The only drawback is it can be expensive for a larger family.

Lots of fun for the kids and adults have a good time as well. The staff is friendly, and it is a good value. Being a water park, it's best in hot weather.
