Get the locker/towel combo when you get there. You get a locker for the day and a towel with the map of the park on it to keep!

A week day pass is worth it. Borrow your friends season pass for free parking. Bring your own food. Just got to think smart. It saves you big time.

Loved the lazy river. My two year old son loved it too. When I took him the second time around it was so relaxing he knock out for his nap.
