Plenty of place do many of the things this place does better but now where we have ever been had a mermaid show. I did not think the mermaid show was that great but I am a middle aged guy, our little girls almost spontaniously combusted with joy when the show started and were transfixed the whole time and we went back for a second show and they loved every second of it. Our little boy enjoyed too, not quite as much. After the show they have one of the mermaids propped in chair and the kids could get pictures and talk to the mermaids. Our kids loved that and the mermaids were very nice and paitient with all the children. Our 3, 4 and 5 year old girls and 6 year old son got the most out of it. Our two year old enjoyed it but was done with it pretty quick as most two year olds are.

The park was not the cleanest and most prestine. They had a lot of bird and animal waste on the walkways but on the oter hand the kids liked the birds, peacocks walking arournd. The kids got to pet a aligator and other animals. The entrance is lined with topless statues of mermaids so our kids of course noticed and asked about that.
Our girls were mesmerized by the mermaids and that is why this place gets a high rating from us. We went in the winter and the park was not crowded at all and you could sit pretty much anywhere you wanted for the mermaid show and spread out to accomadate the kids. The water park was not
open during the winter so we cant comment on that.
