Reservations Now Open for Summer 2022!

COVID-19 Statement

Opening: May 12, 2022

We had an incredible summer of ministry in 2021 as thousands of families came through our doors to be refreshed, have fun, and connect together as a family.

Our staff were honored each day to serve our guests and to be a part of family memories being made.

After a long summer of ministry, we are working hard to plan, prepare, replace, and make new experiences for families next summer.

Your continued support, feedback, and trust is what keeps us going and we can't wait for all that next year holds.

Reservations for Summer 2022 open at midnight on November 1st.
