This was my first trip to a water park and took my 7 year old. We weren't able to arrive until around 11:00 which was not the best time. By the time we arrived, literally all amenities were sold out - reserved chairs, "quick queue" passes etc. If you just want to stash your stuff in a locker you don't need the chair but then get chilly when wet (towel rental a steep $5 with nowhere to keep it) and you have to run back to reapply sunscreen.
Lines for rides were long but tolerable, we made it to 4 of the big slides and keep in mind everything is less than a minute to get down! This is where I think quick queue might be worth it because you could do them multiple times. You are permitted to bring snack food and thank goodness. The lines for lunch (even at 2:00) were huge, so we ate what we had brought. If you plan to dine, you can hook your card up to a wristband so you don't have to drag it around.
If you can purchase a waterproof pouch for phone in advance do it - that would have been very nice to have but they charge a premium for it onsite.
All in all a pretty fun place, liked the "beach" and wave pool, and the fast lazy river (not easy to exit and kids will need help).
