Gold pass only day for the waterpark but there were a TON of cars for the waterpark only. The other lot was filled like crazy too. The lines in the regular park weren't too bad but white water canyon was filled all the way.
As for the water park, took the train like normal, entrance still the same basically, some new signs in the park and painted buildings. The new 4 person racing slides were fun but not much better than the old white slides. Actually I might perfer the 4 white slides. The new Kids Zone looks good where it is and looks like the park has more but its not much different. The Funnel slide was fun, decent wait but very fun. They put red and blue tarps at the top of the slides which dont look good with the color of some of the slides.
Overall it was a big disappointment... The Funnel was a good addition and the new kid zone is nice but the theming just isnt there like i was hoping. It reminds me too much of the old park and they didnt add enough... Don't go expecting a lot of new stuff and for it to be a lot better. Just my opinion
Tasmanian Typhoon was the best ride without a question. Overall, the park was quite enjoyable.
Overall, the water park is a big improvement over WaterWorks. I'm glad to see some new signage, new colors, and new names. The extra landscaping also added to the experience: the place last year was a sea of open space and concrete more than a water park. I'm hoping they can keep this makeover up so it doesn't end up looking like Water Works from the past few years.
I thought it was disappointing with some of the existing attractions: They didn't do much to the lazy river, and some of the older slides I thought needed replacement. And yes, they should really get rid of the black floor stuff for the slide lines - I know there's better, foot-friendly surfaces out there.
I can't wait til next weekend to try out the new stuff - especially Coolangatta and Typhoon.
