It's cold outside, but not at the Splash Park! I must say that this is one of the best places to relax and watch the kids have fun in central MN! Great management with friendly life guards and helpful staff. Very satisfied!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, unfortunately we had a part in the hot tub that was out at the time, it has since been repaired. Our rule for the 12 and under is two fold, one, hot tubs are not always safe for younger children and with the amount of people that go through the park we... More

Our family met at this hotel/waterpark because it was centrally located between North Branch and Fargo. What a great water park for adults and kids. Rooms are a little outdated, but overall nice

This water park was very dirty. There was mildew on the bottom of the pool. Several of the water features were not in working order.

I would like to apologize that you felt the waterpark was not clean, unfortunately we have trouble with hard water at the park which will do some discoloration to the pools. The pools are cleaned daily and we are constantly working on trying to find a solution to the hard water issue. I have checked the play features and they... More

My kids had so much fun at the water park! There is no swimming pool and not much for teens and adults but I'd say just about anyone 12 and under couldn't help but have fun here! There is a little arcade situated by the food court. The food is good enough and cocktails are served in the park.

This is a waterpark inside a resort in Alexandria,MN. It is clean, well monitored and exciting for younger kids. It does have one large slide, which is still OK for younger kids. Seems more appropriate for kids 12 and younger. There is also an arcade that you can earn tickets to select prizes. Moderately to high priced if you are... More

Biggest water park in the area. Accommodates most all ages. Lots of lifeguards on duty. Down side is adults have to pay even if they are just there to watch the kids and don't actually swim so it can be an expensive trip if you are just taging along to visit

Experienced the water park while on a corporate getaway and had fun even as a group of adults. There were mostly children in the area, but it is a large space and we were still able to have fun! Highly recommend, especially for families.
