  • Wonderful place to visit and stay. Location is the best. Great warm pool, food was excellent. Service was great in all ways. I definitely would go back. I could get wet in the park, go back to my room get changed and continue enjoying the park in a matter of minutes.
  • Fun. Packed.. but fun. Definitely pricey, but a once in a blue moon treat, is good. Plenty of attractions to keep everyone in the family busy. Great for kids & adults. Sometimes the park is packed & the attraction rides are ridiculous, so when you decide to visit the park, is very important. You can always purchase an Express Pass & skip the lines or pick the Single Riders line. You may not be able to ride with your friends/family, but you'll definitely beat the lines. Overall, the experience is great & a lot of fun & I recommend a visit.
