We stopped here for a day with 2 kids (11 and 13). We got inexpensive tickets through Groupon. The vouchers worked easily. We rented the least expensive cabana, which I highly recommend. If gives you a place to leave your stuff and you don't have to worry about finding chairs. The cabanas come with a locker and a cooler of ice with 4 waters. We also packed our lunch in a small cooler. Be warned! They are very serious regarding the cooler size restriction (no more than 14" on the longest dimension). We got there right when the park opened. There was a short line that went quickly. I highly recommend getting there early, as the place filled up by noon. Even at its peak, our longest wait for a ride was 15 minutes. Many of the rides are somewhat tame. There were at least two that satisfied our more thrill-seeking child. Plan for no more than 4 hours to do all the rides, eat lunch and ride your favorites one or two more times. The restrooms were surprisingly clean. In contrast to many of the prior reviews, we found the staff, while young, to be very pleasant and helpful.

I've been going to Zoom Flume for more years than I can remember, and I've always enjoyed it. They've recently added new attractions (zip lines, a big new slide, etc.) and done some really nice upgrades (lots of spiffy new railings, etc.), and safety improvements (scales on the big slides to ensure guests are of the appropriate weight). The part is nestled in the woods with spectacular views of several of the Catskill high peaks. We usually pack our lunches, but for our visit yesterday I bought a Groupon which included lunch, so we had the chicken strips, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was better than most restaurants; certainly WAY better than you might expect from an amusement park.

Took my four granddaughters for the day. We had a blast! Rented a cabana that was on the wave pool. Very comfortable and affordable. The food was above average and very good. The staff throughout was young and very well-versed in all aspects of the park. Everyone who worked there was very helpful and loved their job. I would highly recommend this for any sized family. Affordable and fun, fun, fun!

A fun way to spend a summer afternoon - water slides with and without tubes. Be prepared to wait in line for the most popular ones, though. Some of the ride attendants are great, and some are clearly bored out of their minds.

It is a rather small water park but surpassed our expectations! Rent a cabana! Even though it states you can't bring food in, we saw several families with bags of food!
