Not sanitary, but local fun, I guess.

Nice to have a water park in town but cost is higher than value and of questionable cleanliness. Potential unrealized.

New ownership is cleaning Tulsa's only waterpark up and making it fun again! It's well on it's way back to a clean, fun, family friendly place that you will want to come to. The foods are good and decently priced, they allow you to bring in ice chests, but for a fee. It's now called safari joe's, instead of big... More

The best place to be is at the bottom of the super slide when there are lots of bikinis. Awesome lazy river too. The wave pool is great fun also. I've enjoyed attending here for years.

So excited to see a big difference just 1 week after announcement of a new owner. I'm excited about the future of Big splash. We stopped going years ago but we may start getting season tickets once again. I would recommend a landscaping makeover as well as the rides. Flowers and plants to follow a theme. All good water parks... More

I am 19, therefore I don't really enjoy going to these parks anymore, and it is far too expensive for me to go just for fun. It will be a good time if you have small children who can swim, or any children under the age of 13, but above that your kids may not have as good of a... More

I took my 8 year old boy and we had a blast!! It was absolutely worth the $10 (per person with coupon) admission. Perfect for his age, we spent hours on the slides, in the wave pool, and jumping off the high dive. He enjoyed the water climbing wall as well. It has a 100 pound weight limit. If you... More

I have to say that i am nver going back. Its just that it is run down. They need to take some time and do a complete remodel, or shut it down and tear it down. Such a disappointment.

The rides need to be updated and stripped and re-painted. Lots of possibly places to injure your feet. Need more places to cool off your feet while walking from place to place as the ground gets very very hot. I was a member for 8 years and the past 2 years have not even bothered. We visited once last year... More

We've been members here for 11 years and my kids and I look forward to it every year. I don't go on weekends because it's so crowded but we love every pool and activity. Foods a little over priced but ok if you're trapped there for the whole day. Be sure to catch a discount ticket. Full price is ridiculous.
