Kids can enjoy the Soak Station, the children’s water playground with 68 features, including water jets, slides, bubbler jets and a six-foot tipping bucket.
The little ones will love the Spray & Play, a water play area for toddlers, with 15 water jets and bubblers at zero depth.
Bring food for a lunch because the water park also has a picnic area, complete with tables and grills.
Regular rates are: $16 for those over 43″ tall, $9 seniors and those under 43″ tall, or $12 for residents over 43″ tall. But remember, those rates are cut in half for the holiday weekend. Parking is free.
