We stay there every year and love it. The food is great and the rooms are clean quiet. I have never had a complaint.
The park is pretty nice for a place like Des Moines, but the hotel is awful. The rooms are grimy and have paper-thin walls, the chlorine smell in the pool nearly kills you, and there is so much debris (including broken glass!!!) around the pool and in the hallways I cringed when I saw kids running around barefoot. Too bad there isn't a better place to take kids for an indoor pool party in the winter.
Ride the coasters!
When it's hot as heck go to the fabulous Kokomo cove!!! The slides are fantastic!! So is the lazy river!
If you are fat, sit in front on the log ride, you will get wet!
Perry Ellis loved to have fun the American way! Put on your favorite Perry Ellis graphic t-shirt and shorts and hit the coasters for a summer of fun and style!
Kinda quiet around here in late November...
Sit in the back of the log ride and you will not get wet.
Bring dry clothes if gonna ride raging river :-) :-)
