Cascade Falls reviews
The Cascades Falls (or just "Falls") is the perfect place for a family-friendly evening. The lights are set to music, and you can dance, stroll, sit and watch, walk to the top, or even roll down the..... more »
Gorgous old fountain that lights up. Sometime they play old 40's music while it's lit, other nights they have a blow up screen and a movie going. Good times. more »
You have your choice of walking around the falls (be prepared to get a little wet). And listening to the music and watching the colors of the falls change. It is Beautiful. People drive from all over the U.S. to see the falls. Kids water park to come Summer of 2017. Wednesday night entertainment draws crowds that appreciate local musicians. Affordable for family with kids of all ages. Cascades is always doing something to keep the family entertained. We went on princess night and the girls loved it. The Falls are fun for all ages, and the stairs are great for some exercise. Do be prepared to get a bit damp, especially if there is a breeze.
Great to revisit the falls, the facility looked good and i like to see it once again without the prison wall. Crowd was small but it was Sunday night, light show and music were okay, but walking around during the show was not great. Overall we had fun but would like to be able to hear the music while walking around, and the lights should be on for a longer period of time so walkers can see something more the flases of light.
