The Knight family has put it all together for us. Their water park is filled with offerings for all ages, the mini golf course is very cool, the go-cart track is always a favorite, golfers can enjoy a driving range, and there's a game room to hang out in when you tire of the outdoors. Food is exactly what you'd... More

There are many things to do at Knight's Action Park. And plenty of things for every member of the family and every age group. Paddle boats, bumper boats, a wave pool, and a variety of water slides make up some of the activities at the park. They do have season passes, and you should be able to find coupons -... More

This is great fun for our kids but we spent a small fortune just to spend a few hours before the kids completely melted down. The slides, pools and activities are fun and there is a variety for every age group. The down side is that there are shaded areas but once they are taken, you may have no option... More

Knight's Action Park is a Springfield perennial favorite. A must go-to attraction at least once a summer for locals or for tourists seeking a water park experience. Although Springfield is a state Capitol, where isn't a whole lot to do here. So Knight's is a bright spot in a bleak attraction landscape. Lots to do there - water slides, awesome... More

We went on a day that they were having a couple of companies that were having outings there. It really didn't seem overly crowded. My niece fell and scaped her elbow and knee and the staff was so nice and made her feel very comfortable. Warning : if you are like me and do not like the water slides do... More

This park is always too crowded and too expensive. Not worth the money. The food is also entirely too much money.

We went on a Wednesday and was able to use their County Market receipt deal - buy 1 Splash Pass and get 1 free! It saved us a lot, plus we got to do the other attractions for practically nothing! Wave pool is awesome! Food is pretty expensive. The soda is NOT good! It takes like cleaners!! We loved the... More

We only went to eh "Action Park". This park is definitely in need of an update. Mini Golf was bad, with most of the courses looking well worn. Areas where water should be were either drained, or filled with brown water. At one point there where teens playing on the course (wearing staff shirts) and could be heard cursing while... More

I live in Springfield and take my son here a couple times a summer, mainly only on Mondays when moms are free. The price is astronomical- I think it's right around $30/person over a certain age/height. I wouldn't mind paying it if the place were worth it, but frankly, it just isn't. It's just run down. The bathrooms smell so... More

...Manipulated. We could not find accurate prices on the website...primarily pertaining to military discounts as we were told they offered one. I made a phone call and was told on Thursday's military paid the children's admission price. It happened to be Thursday.
