"If you have little ones with lots of energy to burn, this is THE place to be! My grandkids are both 8 and 6 (and the newborn). They love this place! There's so much for the kids to do. You got the trampoline park, indoor go karts, Ninja Warrior obstacle course, arcade and video games, food, and ice cream! Enough to keep the kids busy for hours of fun! The place is always very clean. The staff do an outstanding job keeping rowdy kids in check to ensure everyone has a safe and fun experience. I highly recommend Action City for all young and old kids!"

Great for kids! This water park is a popular spot for birthdays and family days for good reason. Lots of activity is packed into the space. If you find a well-placed deck chair, you can see almost the entire pool area from your seat and still keep an eye on your more independent swimmers. Life guards are everywhere and are attentive.
