We went 3 days and the kids didn't get bored, ages 14 and 10. We got the unlimited rides for them, which can be used for 48 hours from the time you buy it. Definitely worth the money. There is shopping, rides, and restaurants.

The grandkids loved this place. Spent two afternoons enjoying the newly added rides as well as sitting and watching the water show.

This place was the best bang for the buck! My 7 year old grandson had an absolute blast! He love everything he did and he did everything! Clockwork was his absolute favorite. He must have ridden it 15 times!
