My family of 5 visited on a hot July day. We really enjoyed the park. There aren't a lot of roller coasters, but the six they have are all great. Many of the other rides are fun as well. The themed stores and restaurants are a lot of fun and have a lot of interesting things to buy and eat. Be sure to find the store that is specific to each country and visit it. We didn't see any of the shows, but heard they were great. The best place to eat seemed to the BBQ restaurant in New France. Overall, it was a great day and I would definitely go again if I was in the area.
My family loves theme parks. This was our first visit and we were all impressed. The park is well themed and extremely clean. Customer service and ride operators did an incredible job. They were friendly and courteous. The coasters were great! All steel coasters and very smooth rides. They have a variety of shows that are entertaining for all ages. There were 3 water rides. We got wet on 2 (Pompeii & Rapids). There is a Sesame Street area for younger children. There are flat rides as well. Most of which were spinning rides.
Was really fun. We rode coasters. They were different from other coasters. One recommendation I would make is to build an actual building at the train stop in Italy since there is no shade at that station.
We were visiting from CA and found this to be a great, safe place to celebrate July 4th. Without having the inside scoop for local fireworks we spent a fun day enjoying the park and watching a great fireworks display! The park has something for everyone...easy rides, crazy rides and some really cool shopping districts.
