Re: [Unity_Games] Water park
- My wife and I traded off time with our 7- and 9-year old daughters at the water park, today. I thought the park was a lot of fun. It seemed pretty clean, as such thing go. If you have a problem with public pools, well, that's basically what it is, but I didn't see anything that I would consider gross, other than food on the ground near the grill.
Our girls had a good time, staying at the park from 10am (opening) until probably 4:30 or so. It has a little kids section, and medium kids section, and a big kids section (i.e., the big water slides), plus a 4' deep pool, a river (i.e., a loop with an artificial current, where you can float along on tubes when you need a break from the water slides), and a 15-and-up hot soaking pool. I went down the big slides a few times, myself, and enjoyed it (though I'm not much of an adrenaline junky, so a few times were enough). By mid-to-late afternoon the lines were a little long, but manageable. (By that time, my kids were mostly doing more relaxing activities.)
I'm kind of a cheapskate, so $40 seems a little steep, but $30 with the Unity discount (or $25 if you get the family pass for 4) isn't bad. The food was a little pricey, but no where near as expensive as I feared (and it was fairly good for what it was).
I hope that answered your questions. Feel free to ping me (on or off list, as appropriate) if you have more questions.
