This is a must for anyone with small children. This is a great alternative to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. It's very contained, so you can keep a tight eye on your little ones while they play. It is a lot smaller than the water parks, but it doesn't matter to the kids. In fact I like it much better since I have an 18 month old.
Also you can't beat the price: $3 for 2-17 years old & $4 for 17 and up.
There is a little water structure with slide, water cannons, spraying water & tunnel in the middle of a very shallow pool. There is an area where buckets fill with water and dump on your head. There is a big winding slide for the bigger kids, not sure of the height restriction, but there is one. There are other pools with high dives and swimming lanes.
If you get hungry there is pizza , nachos etc. available for purchase. Not sure if the food is any good, we ate before we came
All in all for price and what they offer you can't beat this water playground. Very recommended. One thing to know, there is a wait sometimes because there is a max amount of people allowed, so you might have to wait until people leave to be allowed in. The longest I had to wait is 20 minutes. Open 12noon til 6pm everyday of summer!
he aquatic center has three main polls, the best of which is the family pool which is like a mini water park with a big water slide for those that are over 48 inches and then a mini playground for the little kids. The zero entry at the family pool is great for toddlers, my kids never needed life jackets but they are available if needed (floaties are not allowed). The dive pool requires anyone under 12 to take a swim test but its not hard. Arrive early because there can be lines at opening.
First time going there was a line to get in and I had to wait about 1/2 before getting in. It was right after nap time, around 2 ish. once inside it was packed not surprising since I had to wait to get in. Without warning they kicked everyone out of all the water and do a check which is interesting, I guess if you were injured in the last three minutes it would have saved you but they don't do it that often I was there for 2 1/2 hours and they did it once. Someone said you could get a free life vest but I didn't know how or where to get one, so if you could they could be alittle more helpful about that. I know they had a swim test to go in the deep in but since I had a two year old I didn't check that section out.
The Aquatic Center is fun for any age. My daughter is a pretty good swimmer, but still loves to play in the "playland". They have a walk in wading area that is great the little ones and a huge slide for the bigger ones. It is also very safe, and they take breaks every so often to make sure the pool is clear and clean. There can be a pretty long wait sometimes. And it is best to come a little after opening so you aren't stuck in the huge line.
I have only been here a few times but each time I take my kids I love it even more. Then Palce is clean. The snack bar they have available is reasonably priced and good. I like the fact that they dont let it get too crowded. They keep the capacity at a low max. If you dont get there right when they open you may have to wait in line for quiet soem time before you get in. But I have learned if you time it right you wont have a long wait. For those not able to go when they open I suggest you go about 2.5 to 3 hours after they open to try to get in. That way the first shift of families have pretty much had their fill and are starting to go home. I find the last 2 hours are a good time to go because the peak heat is dying down and 2 hours of splashing about is jut enough to get my kiddos good and tired. The price to get in is really cheap too!
