Consumer Complaints and Reviews

Satisfaction Rating

Excellent. Very reasonable. Got tickets at Giant Foods. Excellent service and very clean and the water park was fantastic. The new chocolate world ride was almost the same. The new cows really did not enhance it.

Satisfaction Rating

Way too expensive. I think you'll get more with less. We went to the park and left. We enjoyed the visit and haven't been back since. Would I suggest going there again? I don't think so. Parks like Hershey is too expensive especially if you have more than one child.

Satisfaction Rating

My family had a great time. Plenty to do. Wonderful. My family and I loved everything about this park. The rides were great for all ages, and we had a large span of ages from 5 to 70. There was something to do for everyone. I also love the shops. I'm always happy shopping. I just wish it was closer to upstate NY so we could go more often.
