While I will probably opt to stay at a cheaper hotel while in the area, I'm sure many families will love this place. I was thinking the same thing as whoever gave the review when he talked about the accoustics, but I thought it might have just been poor quality due to the video camera. Maybe it will sound better when it isn't so empty. Those basketball goals in the water also look like a lot of fun.

That review failed to answer the most important question: Do they have DDR in the arcade? :)

Um, is it just me or does that place look EMPTY? If you watch the videos there's no one there. I guess they'll make up for it in the summer, but honesty, who travels to Sandusky, Ohio in December?

It was early in the morning when he shot that stuff.

We just back from Castaway Bay and it sucked. The waterpark is ok but it does not feel like a resort at all. The hotel itself is generic. There are kids walking around with big red welts all over them from the waterslides. So I wouldn't go on them. There aren't any tv channels for the kids to watch at night when you want them to settle down at night. They have nickelodeon on at the pool but not in the rooms? Stupid. The lifeguards are not friendly at all. I heard them complaining about working conditions (staying at posts for too long). They don't have a lazy river ride like Great Wolf Lodge. That basically means you are going to get water kicked in your face regardless of what pool you go in. The lobby was freezing and not impressive at all. We had the starfish room with out a single starfish. They should go and check out Great Wolf Lodge. Maybe they can get some pointers on what a indoor waterpark RESORT is supposed to be like.
