Took a day trip from Long Island with my 2 year old and 7 year old twins- everyone had a blast! There was a lot of people there but nothing felt crowded and the kids didn’t have to wait more than a few minutes for a chance on the slides. Staff was friendly and helpful when I couldn’t find one of my sons and again when my toddler lost his beloved stuffed animal. We will be back!
We enjoyed this park as part of our mini vacation. It's a small water park, but our little one loved it. The indoor water is SUPER warm. But there was a ton of chlorine in the water. The outside water is freezing, but the tide pool was fun. When I was first reading reviews before our trip, I was concerned because there's a lot of complaints about staff and guests. Well, we didn't experience that at all. Everyone was super cool. Lifeguards were a bit heavy on the whistle, but that's pretty much lifeguards everywhere. It's their job to keep people safe in water, so yes, they're going to be a bit rule-obsessed.
This was our third visit there. We were very disappointed that they told us we were not to bring a birthday cake all though we have rented a cabana unless we would to rent the party room which of course was taken. All though we have rented the cabana ahead when we got there we had to wait for an hour for someone to take us to the cabana. I think at some point they forgot about us. The place seems to be going down hill as well every time a bigger and bigger crowed, water is dirty trash just laying around. The people are rude constantly cutting lines bumping into you without even saying excuse me. The life guards constantly on every once case away from walls, ropes, no play fight, no splashing, at some point my 5 year old son wrapped his arms around my shoulders and I was just pulling him around, that was a no no as well. I don't think we will be coming back here again.
It's a rather nice place which has both an indoor and outdoor part. For a good portion of the year the outdoor portion is closed by the indoor part contains the majority of the slides/activities. Inside there are a total of 5 different slides not including the playground Esq area. It also has a lazy river, a pool and a surf simulation. The outdoor has a pool, a wave pool and a kids park. All in all its a nice place but be careful about the time you go or you may spend a good bit of time in line. The annual pass is very affordable not costing much more than a one day pass.
My family and I had a wonderful time for my nephews 9th birthday. They also give military discount for parties of 3 which was greatly appreciated. If you have their membership card you get 10%off your meal purchase
