My family and I visited this park and fell in love! I think it's one of the best in PA. It is worth it to get a pass for both the amusement park and water park! My teen and toddler had a blast! It's is affordable and great family fun! The only hang up is that they do not accept cash. You have to get a Wally card and it is used as payment. You can buy one all over the park and put as much money as you want on it to purchase food or other items. Other than that, it's in awesome and we will definitely be going back!!!

The park is alot of fun and lots of things for kids to do! Great for families! However, the rides can add up if you just pay per ride. And if you get the unlimited pass it is kind of pricey unless you ride a lot of the rides twice or more. Also, they service was pretty good, but the safety aspect of the rides was a little relaxed...not that anything bad happened, but it just seemed pretty relaxed with the safety aspect of the rides.

Web page says open today. Just traveled over 100 miles one way to find out the park is closed today. Thanks Waldameer. If you going to say "open today" you should be open. Not a very professional or reliable web page.
