We take our Taekwondo summer campers here every year. The Great Waves staff are professional, courteous, and good with children. They have a first aid station that helps with cuts and bumps and there are enough small sized life vests to go around. Kids seem to love eating lunch there; the food is actually not bad they even sell a salad and veggie burger for meatless options. Overall we give Great Waves the highest rating and will be coming back summer after summer!

The water was pretty dirty... Maybe too many people and all the sunscreen? I had goggles on in the wave pool and the water was really cloudy. Also, super packed, no room to move around. Finally, the lifeguards want smaller kids to stay behind a certain line, which kinda takes the fun out of it. The bigger slides looked fun, but my 6 year old wasn't tall enough so we stuck to the kiddie slides which weren't too exciting.

The water park is a lot of fun if you get there first thing in the morning. The parking lot fills up very fast and then you have to take your chances parking illegally nearby. Before the big crowds arrive, the slides are fun and the wave pool is entertaining. Avoid the Grill for food - the employees are totally incompetent and you'll end up waiting literally an hour. Go for pizza instead. By mid afternoon it gets really, really crowded.

Over all everything was great. The pools and slides were great. I wouldn't recommend buying food there. The employees are extremely immature and don't know how to act. Very rude and took them more than 40 minutes for my order. They had given my order to someone else. I'd recommend buying food somewhere else. They need better lifeguards to pay more attention. I feel like most employees are childish high school kids who can't act like a decent person and should be replaced with more mature people. Wouldn't recommend the food areas.

It was a really nice park. The kids had so much fun but there was lightening (in the area) so they kicked everyone out of the park. It's a great effort but somewhat annoying since it was a beautiful day.
