We loved this park! Rides were spot on. Something for everyone. The theming of each area was amazing. We used our fast passes and got on nearly everything. Velocicoaster and Hagrids were by far the best rides. And Popeyes rapids, get ready to get soaking!!

Trusted Customer reviewed 15 Aug,2022

We had mixed feelings from the families on this. Some found it too busy. But we had an amazing day. You get to tap in on the rides and come back. We loved the rapid river. We went round this a million times!! The rest of the water rides were amazing and didn’t compare to typhoon lagoon, where they were alittle less thrilling!
