This attraction is closed waiting on a buyer. Very sad indeed has left a scar on the landscape at Hillaries . You still have the beach, b b q's, safe swimming in ocean, shops, eateries. Still a great place to visit.

This whole section of Hillaries needs an upgrade. The mini golf is terrible 1980s style. The waterslides are ok but haven't been upgraded for about 20 years. It's a real band aided area that could be so much more. Sadly dissapointed.

The kids (ages 5-8) loved it but rather pricey. We paid $95 for the 3 kids although they do not charge for adult guardians not using the facility. In the blast of a 40degree weather, they ought to have more shaded areas. Even if you...More

Not worth the money and not much to do.Not enough staff to cover the rides and other attractions. Very disappointed.

This was disappointing overall, there are not very many rides/activities and some have age and/or height/weight restrictions, so in all there were only three activities which our 6 and 8 year olds could go on together. Would suggest it is not necessary to purchase tickets...More
