The floors in the room felt damp. The shower was weird, there was only half a shower glass wall, the back end was all open, so water got all over the floor. Water park was nice. R kids enjoyed the large slide.

We booked a room for 5 and got a room for 4. Asked for a cot or some extra blankets to make a bed and was told they didn't have any. So my kids took turns sleeping on the floor. Won't stay there again.

Perfect. I'm like a two year old when it comes to "the water" so I can speak "from experience". Enjoy! I've been there 4 or 5 overnights with my grandchildren. I live in Massachusetts, they in Iowa/Illinois.
