Had a blast with two kids ages 3 and 6. Fun slides and play structure for kids. Two person tube slide is also a lot of fun.

The water park itself was pretty fun and the staff at the desk were a joy to talk to and work with. It seemed odd that there was an age limit set on the hot tub area but for the most part they had water...More

We had fun, but had to cut it short because my sons were shivering. Either the air or water temperature needed to be warmer. I was disappointed to pay $45+ to only be there about an hour.

It's cold outside, but not at the Splash Park! I must say that this is one of the best places to relax and watch the kids have fun in central MN! Great management with friendly life guards and helpful staff. Very satisfied!
