Overall, it was great stay. The only disappointment was that check-in was so crowded that there was a long line and we had to wait near the front desk for more than 30 minutes.

I like everything, the problem was with all the underlying charges. The arcade games were outrageously expensive. The food and drinks were expensive. You didn't even get a free refill on drinks when that is one of the least expensive costs to a business. When I arrived it was an extra $150 for hotel taxes. These did not show up on my invoice when I booked the room. Luckily I had the money to cover these extra expenses, but how do the young people who are on limited funds pay for these unexpected charges.

It was a fantastic experience and the staff were super friendly and helpful even though they were extremely stressed and understaffed for Labor Day weekend. That's definitely something management needs to look into for the future because their people deserve better. While the place is pricey it was worth the experience and my 8yo loved it. The waterpark is the obvious draw but there are other things to do as well. However, parts of the waterpark were closed, again, because of understaffing and a few mechanical problems. But there are enough attractions to keep even the most serious waterbug busy.
