Average overpriced amusement Park

My son is 14 and he felt like most of the rides were for younger kids, so we exited the park after a waste of money!

The water park was fun but everything was overpriced. The food was terrible and ridiculously expensive. The rides were awesome. We made a day out of it and had fun but didn't go the next year because the price went up again.. (2015) Our party consisted of 2 adults and an 8 year old.

I was not pleased with the prices to ride. My son was too short to ride a few of the rides so I had to buy a ride card for myself as well so he could ride 3 rides with an adult. Definitely was not worth the price.

We visited Speed World on their last day of the season last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and pretty much had the place to ourselves. For about $48 for the 2 of us, we experienced the Grand Prix, LeMans and the Cyclone tracks. We were able to squeeze a couple of extra laps due to the lack of paying customers.... More

Two hours of go carts during dinner time was fantastic. No crowds and we got to race lots of times. Best deal was buying the pass through the Hilton front desk.
