Where are we going today?

Normally we love cooling off in summer with a quick swim, but here it doesn't matter - it's indoors!

This pretty cool water park has super fun activities that makes it more than just a swimming pool.  While it features an 8 lane 25 yard competition pool, it also has a leisure pool that is a zero depth entry pool with three 20-yard lap lanes.  For those who don't particularly want to take swimming too seriously and just have a splash and a play, just as well they also have a 124 foot water slide (yes you heard right!), a fun splash down area, tipping water buckets to keep you soaked, a vortex area - and for those younger kids a preschool water slide, and for those kids at heart an adult poolside spa.

They even have a waterfall!

Children do have to be over 3 years of age and toilet trained for this waterpark, but they also need to be able to have fun!

If you want a swimmingly fun party then you can rent a party room at the venue. You get your birthday celebrations as well as swim time.

    Ignore the bad reviews the staff does a GREAT JOB considering in the summer, pool only holds so many kids and they try to accommodate and rotate as many as possible.Overall place is VERY CLEAN I've watched them constantly taking pool samples make sure of the chlorine levels. Always have been polite to me. ALWAYS 2 Life guards watching ALL pools.1 on each side. They may have lap pool going, aerobics and Kidde pool at same time, GIVE THEM A BREAK.

    The facility itself isn't bad at all. What I did not like is the website advertises the hours that they are open. I went there with my family expecting to go in right away. When we got there, we were told that we would have to wait until the next "session" which was more than an hour wait. When you pay for entrance, you are paying for a 2 hour period as opposed to enjoying the facility until you want to leave. They do not explain this on the website, and it is a little misleading. Other than that, we had a decent time.

    Nice Place. It helps to understand a few things, though

    1) Admission covers a 2-hour session. This is spelled out on the website and in the publications, but people still whine about it. You pay for 2 hours, leave the pool at the end of the session, and pay for another session if you want to stay longer.

    If it's too crowded, they won''t let you in until the next session. That seems reasonable, since it might help prevent a drowning. Still, some people cry about it.

    Great staff. Very polite and good at what they do (especially with having to guard a water park). The facility itself is awesome. You can have a great time at this pool!

    Horrible Place. I don't even know where to begin. The life guards and overall staff are very rude. If you ask them a question they throw you this look of "why are you bothering me?". The facility is okay but far from amazing. The life guards are very selective when enforcing the rules making the overall experience very unenjoyable. After our first day swimming my kids didn't want to ever go back. That should say enough right there.

I had no trouble getting the staff to explain the details of the admission and pass system to me, No one was rude to me.

2) Admission is $4 for kids, $6 for adults, $4 for seniors if you live in AA County. Add $2 if you are from out of the county. So it's not cheap, but not horribly expensive either.

3) Discount books bring the prices down, especially for Adult + Children combos. Your ticket gets punched once for each adult, once for each kid. I can't see why anyone would expect anything else.

4) The lap pool is for swimmers. You don't need to be a racer, but it's not set up for lounging around in the shallow end, either. A lot of seniors use it for workouts, as do many young adults.

The kiddie pool is for kids. What else? It's nice, with water depths from 1 half foot to 4.5 feet. It has a pair of slides and some fountains, but if you want Six Flags you'll be disappointed.

All in all, I liked it.
