This place was really fun! Our kids enjoyed it. We stayed here for three days. The first day was awesome and we had a blast at the slides. The second and third days started to feel monotonous and I was ready to go. They have a pretty good candy shop and variety of restaurants and gift shop. The reviews about...

Key Lime Cove was a great experience. My kiddos (ages 2 and 6) both had tons of activities to keep them busy. The rooms were very clean and the lifeguards were extremely attentive. We ate at the diner, and the food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Fun for all!

We had 3 couples and an adult daughter and two minor children, 11 and 1. This park was appropriate for our family for a one-night getaway. I liked the lazy river. However, my husband at 6'5" did not float on top of the tube but instead was on his knees propelling us along and wound up with scrapes so it...

We went here to get away for a little 'staycation' type deal, we just had to get out of the house with the kids (we have four, ages 6,4, and two 2 year olds.) When we arrived it was very exciting, new and clean. I couldn't wait to get into the water park with the kids. When we got to...

From check-in to check-out, this was the most carefree experience I have ever had at a hotel. The staff greet you before you even enter the property, offering to help with any luggage.

As far as water park facilities go, Key Lime Cove is very nice. Are there nicer rooms at other water parks? Sure, but they are much farther away from Chicago. What sets Key Lime Cove apart is the number of entertainment and dining options. I have been to a lot (I mean A LOT) of water parks in the Midwest,...
