Leisure Pool -  This intriguing 6,500 SF area begins with a zero depth entrance where you can walk through or around a water playground with sprays and geysers.  Stroll to the lazy river where you can enjoy a leisurely ride on an inner tube, enjoy a relaxing moment in the spa or swim in the four lane, 25-yard warm-up pool.  For the kid in all of us, walk up the winding steps to our 25' high platform, where the excitement awaits your journey on an inner tube, curving around and down the 250' water slide splashing into the plunge pool.
