Zoom Flume is certainly one of the best water parks I've been to. There is a very good diversity in the slides, with each one having something different to offer. My group's personal favorite was the Wild River, a multi-person raft slide, which we rode twice. We also had an awesome time racing each other on Grand Prix Splashway, braving the Mighty Anaconda, and going head first on the Zoom Flume's namesake mat slide. If you're looking for relaxation, there's a lazy river, a pool with various water features, and an abundance of sun decks. My group did nearly every attraction in the park in five hours, lunch included.
Where Zoom Flume really stands out is it's wave pool, the best one I have ever been in. The waves are huge and very powerful. I was easily picked up off my feet every time. It also goes deeper than wave pools usually do. My friends and I spent more time here than anywhere else. Just be prepared for the possibility of accidentally bumping into people.
If you're looking for options for very young children, there is a children's pool with a pelican waterslide near the lazy river, a wild-west themed area, and rainbow-themed pool off of the wave pool, and a small tube slide especially for children. Since my group consisted entirely of young adults. I can't give any more personal testimony other than that I saw these.
The food here is actually reasonably priced. There is a main food court near the Mighty Anaconda that has your typical burgers, chicken fingers, and hot dogs. There are also grilled chicken wraps for the more health-conscious. In addition, there is a pizza place near the wave pool. You can bring in a small lunch-sized cooler provided it does not exceed a certain size. Lockers are reasonably priced as well: my group of four were able to fit all of our things into one jumbo locker. The restrooms are as clean as they possibly can be in a water park.
There were only two real caveats we had. One is that the park's layout is rather confusing. The entrances to slides are not always apparent and most of the time the entrance will be nowhere near the exit. We had to do a lot of asking for directions. The other is that this park is certainly made for smaller (IE: lighter) people. My group couldn't do Typhoon Twister because, although we met the weight requirement for single tubes, no single rides were being allowed and we exceeded the weight requirement for double rides. We did get more used to the layout as the day went on.
I overall heartily recommend Zoom Flume for both groups of adults and families with children. Here are my tips:
- Females: Wear a one piece swimsuit! I was the only one in my group who did and my friends all almost lost their bottoms at various points throughout the day
- Come as close to opening as you can before it gets crowded
- Buy your ticket online to avoid waiting in the ticket line
- There is either a show or a celebrity meet-and-greet most weekends: it is good to check the website about these to see what will be going on while you're there.
A great time awaits you.
