There's even a kiddie pool with water dropping features and a children's playground. Your admission includes floats. However, the supply of floats is limited. Extensive fast-food concessions available as well! You may also bring your own food and drink in a cooler. We do not allow glass containers or alcohol. Your bags and coolers are checked upon entry.
