  • Those tiny donuts are what dreams are made of. I would almost say it’s worth the visit just for that! :p

  • The Shark Reef was so amazing! It helped me and my boyfriend conquer fear of swimming in “natural” water. Thanks for sparking that memory!

  • Oh, but how I miss the shark reef!

  • For thrills, the surf pool is right up there with Crush ‘n’ Gusher in my book. The assembled crowd lets out a little scream/gasp almost every time it disgorges a big wave.

    Miss Adventure Falls merits a shoutout too; it falls between these categories as just a great group raft slide, mild enough for kids but thrilling enough to be fun for adults without kids.
