  • Fun, love and rides, it's all about these things in this place. Spent a wonderful time here. The rides were just fabulous, especially the 3D ones. Best place for a kid's fun. Take a day's pass or go for annual one, you won't regret it. They have both, the theme and the water parks.
  • Really enjoyed the park. Food was good, lots of selections and we used the meal plan which we were happy with. Very clean, staff kept up well. Lots of characters to get photos with. Ride lines for us were tolerable, for early March. I think we we're getting the start of Spring Break masses. Best advice is to get on the Hulk coast first! Saw a couple of shows too. Harry Potter was good, I expected a little better. The Raptor Encounter was really fun! There's a line, but worth it. Poseidon was good, getting a little dated though. Other rides were fun and overall we had a good time!
