First off the traffic getting in was horrible thanks to one lane turning in from each direction! Real genius that thought that out! Second you have to pay $15 dollars to park, plus admission, & another $11 for a locker! Can't share a locker either...More

My guess is you and your family could visit on a weekday, the lines would be shorter? We enjoyed the idea that we had a nice big thunderstorm on Saturday so my guess is 1/2 the folks left which made the lines somewhat shorter for...More

I expected more from this park for the price. It was a very long hot wait just to get in. Once inside there are ridiculous lines for every ride. All but 1 roller coaster were closed. Food & drink are outrageous. Save your money and...More

15 bucks for parking. $55 per person to enter. Rent a locker and/or a tube. All in all more than I bargained for, but worth the expense. Kids had a blast in the water park. Check Groupon before you go and check on line...heard it...More

Yes, they do allow you to ride bare footed. You'll be able to leave them in cubbies for each ride and get them back at the end.
