I read a several reviews of water country that were not good and having visited yesterday I see that they are true. The biggest problem Water Country has is the staff. Simply put-they don't care and they don't want to help you in any way ie if you need to ask a simple question. The attitude is clearly don't bother me, I don't want to talk to you and I don't care about you. It's sad to see this attitude in a place that has so many children. I was sorely disappointed and would not go back. Maybe it is the way management treats it's staff - I don't know-but it's give us your money and then go fly a kite.
