One of top 10 water parks in North America\" according to Water Park Resorts Today, Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park Resort includes child-friendly attractions, a lazy river, tubes, body slides, thrill water rides, an arcade, Lazer Tag, dining options, and more.
Waterpark was fun when we first got there until Sat. afternoon then it got overcrowded, had to wait in line to get in a kids whirlpool with our daughter(6 yrs old) lines for tubes was long too. Went back to Comfort Inn,where we were staying,pool and that was way too cold.Other then those things it was fun.We would come back next year at a different time not during spring break too crowded!
We got there on Thurs, March 27th and it was not very crowded later in the evening so my kids got to go on a lot of the rides. Since they are young, they went on the slides over and over. They also enjoyed the kiddie pool.
Friday was not bad either, but we left early on Saturday because there were too many people and the kids were bored by this time.
A few things that were disappointing:
1. The line for food was long and it took 20-25 minutes to get served.
2. The staff is inconsistent in that one lifeguard would clearly be enforcing the rules, and when they switched the next lifeguard would let the kids break the rules.
3. The 'lazy river' had a lot of teens who were fooling around in the pool and running into people. Also, my son and I got stuck under the waterfall and he couldn't breath because of the water coming down on him. Thankfully, another patron pushed us out, but I did notice that there were two 'lifeguards' who saw the whole thing and thought it was funny.
4. My biggest problem was the squirt guns. While the park boast of being 84 degrees all year round, there were a lot of kids with squirt guns (that are purchased upstairs) that are filled with ICE COLD water. On Saturday, when it was busy, it seemed like everyone had them and they like to squirt this ice cold water in people's faces. When my 3-year-old daughter were in the hot tub, a few younger children got into a 'squirt gun' fight and were squirting everyone in the hot tub. When I asked the employee (who barely acknowledged my presence) if he could ask them to get out of this little hot tub, he told me that the use of these squirt guns is not restricted. Incidentally, several parents left the hot tub after hearing his answer.
We took our 4 kids and a friend (total of 7 of us ages 10-18) to Splash and stayed one night at the Holiday Inn during Spring Break 2008. The waterpark was so unbelievably overcrowded. The kids waited 20 minutes for a tube for one of the slides and another 30 minutes to get on the ride. The service at the food court was terrible. When our food came out, people were grabbing and putting their hands all over it. We expressed our desire to leave with the management at the Holiday Inn. She said that Splash allows buses-full of people in in addition to the hotel guests. We were able to get our money back for the tickets for the second day at the waterpark. If you are looking for a NICE indoor waterpark experience, try Great Wolfe Lodge. We went to the one in Williamsburg, VA last year and they do not open to outside guests. Even though they were "booked" when we went, they was never a point that we felt uncomfortable (it's just a little pricey).
Booked this get away a month ahead. It was well thought out and everyone was excited. Overall alot of FUN. A couple drawback to beware of!!!!! Comfort is attached BUT if you have kids (especially a stroller) there are alot of steps (up and down) and no elevator! If you buy an add on package BEWARE! Our restaurant voucher was to be good at Boston Pizza for delivery up til 10pm. We called at 8:30 and they wouldn't take our order for delivery or pick up! Lazer tag was also included. However we went at 11am when they opened in morning and even though they advertise walk in's welcome we couldn't get a spot til 6:30 that night. We were scheduled to leave Erie at 5pm that day. Buyer Beware.
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Erie's the best! Waldimere Park in the summer and now Spash Lagoon will be our new mini-vacation spot for wintertime blues. The prices on their packages change all the time. So keep checking. We paid more for the same package that we booked a month in advance than another family who booked one day ahead. Go figure. But, seeing how it was our first time..it was worth every penny. The lifeguards were so nice and made it fun to be there. IMPORTANT NOTE TO ADULTS OVER 30: Take an Aleve each morning before you go to Splash Lagoon. Trust me! It's easy to get caught up in all the fun with a need for speed, booking up all those steps like a kid again and having the time of your life. You will not realize it, but it will catch up to you that night and into the next morning and the days to follow. Aaaahhhh...I can't move my arms....my legs, my back....ouch..my knees are locked up. Help me I can't get up. You will feel like you've been hit by a truck and drug down an old country road. The pain will eventually go away, but the fun and memories will last forever. Will definately be back! Thanks again for a rip roaring time! John and Bobbie Hughes, John Jr. 10 and Daniel 8.
PS. Highly recommend for kids with Autism and Sensory Integration, who can wait 5-10 minutes in line. Most rides had little to no waiting time. The bigger rides like the Cyclone were roughly 10 minutes waiting in line.
Arrived Friday evening and stayed at the Holiday Inn, which was great. Room was large and clean. We went to Splash Lagoon that evening had a great time. Saturday morning after checking out of hotel we went to the park. A long day but the kids enjoyed themselves. After a few hours quite boring but again the kids enjoyed it. However, when it was time to go, in the changing room, with only 4 people there, my purse was stolen, and pretty sure who took it. Went to get a manager who couldn't be bothered to hear my problem, cleaning lady WHO was in the changing area was no help (hum) front desk person no help either. All we got from these people was an attitude. Fortunately purse was found stuffed in the toilet with only one thing missing. After calling the establishment for 3 weeks and writing 2 letters I still have not had any satisfaction from them. (We are pretty sure who took the purse and should be reimbursed for what was taken out of it). It was a good time but never would I go back. The customer service needs a lot of work, perhaps extensive customer service training.
