Amazing funny

This was a easter present to our grandson. He absolutely loved it! Ww enjoyed that the set up was parent- family friendly. The kids could actually be kids. The deeper water was the lazy river and it was monitored, as well as kids were measured to assure life vests were issued to those under a certain heighth ,helping with prevention of drowning. Of course parents who pays attention could figure out if their child needs a vest, but this took the guessing or investigating out of it , making a comfortable environment for all. Also we loved that they actually considered comfort for the kids and had the awesome life vests that kids did not mind running around in. Thank you Kool Zoo and tripShock!!
