They have 2 huge waterslides, a lazy river, a toddler center, and a splash tree house thing for all the kids to play on in the center. It also has a deep water pool that has a rock wall in it to climb. Overall, its a pretty cool place and ESPECIALLY for the price its worth it. Although much more so, for residents because we get a discount. The downside is, that they are overly strict. You MUST have actual swim suits, as in, not even light weight material shorts are allowed for boys, shirts (which i like to wear because sunscreen burns my skin) arent allowed, not even water sock/shoes are allowed, which, i like to wear because the concrete in the pool makes my feet get raw and blistered after a few hours of chasing the kids around. Also they wont let anyone under 47 inches slide on the big slides even though they are entirely enclosed and the child has passed their swim test. My son got tired during his swim test (you have to swim in place a solid 30 seconds then swim the entire length of the pool, and he asked if he could swim on his back to take a break while he finished the test and they told him "no, because if he was tired on the swim test what was he going to do if he was just playing in the pool?"....THEY TEACH TODDLERS TO FLOAT ON THEIR BACKS IF THEY FALL IN A POOL AS A LIFE SAVING TECHNIQUE but my son couldnt do the backstroke to finish their stupid test?! SMDH Based on the review on here from 2 years ago though, i can understand why they are so strict now, it just kind of sucks.

Just a moment...
