First (outdoor) waterpark of 2012! This is my new favorite waterpark. Third time we've been, and even on a super-sunny weekend there was never a line more than 5 minutes long.
They don't have extreme attractions here like 10-story straight-drop slides--it's pretty much wave pool, lazy river, and standard slides, but that makes it a little more family friendly and a bit less rowdy teenage testosterone. 13-year-old girls seemed to rule the roost here. Well, and overweight, sunburned dads with toddlers.
What is it with all the tattoos these days, anyway? Holy cripes. That entire cultural phenomenon passed me by, I guess.
We started with the family raft slide, followed by a tube slide, followed by the wave pool. We took a break for lunch, then did the tube slide again, and the lazy river. Jennifer and Samuel were starting to fade, so Ethan and I went by ourselves on another raft slide. By that point Jennifer and Samuel had already changed into their street clothes, so Ethan changed while I took one more quick dip in the wave pool, then we headed home.
The weather was sunny and mid-80s, everything was clean, everyone was polite, and I don't want to praise it too much--really, you'd be much better off going to Splish Splash or Hurricane Harbor. Also, I'm not going to mention that the parking was free.
