It opened in the summer of 2005, and is Illinois' first indoor waterpark.[] The three-story resort has hotel-style rooms, log cabins and villas, an indoor waterpark, a fitness center, and 2 conference rooms.[1]


The waterpark is 24,000-square-foot (2,200 m2) in size and includes a wavepool, a kiddie pool, two water slides, a lazy river, a hot tub, and an interactive water play area. Both slides empty into the Lazy River which is a fast-paced indoor river.[2]

Adjacent to the water park is an arcade with a wide variety of activities including racing, shooting, sword-fighting, ticket-redemption games, capsule machines, and sport-related machines.
