    That gave me a chuckle - over 60 in for free! I would love to see the grannies and grandpas invade one day and take the place over!!

    Also love their flag by the circle saying "death zone" - don't know
    if they are kidding or telling the truth

    Still to much for me...kids way out of line also. Maybe those prices will work, but unfortunately not for us. I wanta be around when all the 60 and over arrive...it could be on America's funny video..Hey, ya only live once, I am sure that crowd will love it...lol....i wish them luck as I would hate to see any new place close, I wish them the best. Now, if they want to give me a free "try-it" I will go...cindyo

    I just looked to compare to our waterpark here at home. 2009 pricing here is $29.99/adults, $17.99/42 and Under and $15.99/Senior Citizens (age 55+). Deduct $2 if you purchase your tickets online. All in all a better deal than Morgans Island.

    I CAN understand though that they are using a LOT of water and water is VERY expensive in Aruba.

    That's one question I always wondered about that place - where are they getting the water and if/how it is recycled - because it would
    cost a fortune just for the water. Also kinda of a "non-green" use as well....

    i saw the filter systems
    it is the same fliters that are used for swimming pools

    the majority of water loss is thru evaporation
    and the same evaporation occurs at all outdoor pools in aruba

    water is always cycled and cycled and cycled over and over and over

    there is no deliberate throw away with aruba swimming pools including the water park

    i wrote to morgans and asked them to comment on their staffing, activities, pricing, pool sanitization and disinfection

    so the cost of operating the pools at morgans is costly indeed but the cost of all of those pools in aruba is costly too.

    a way to figure the amount of gallons a pool holds
    is
    Length X width X Average Depth X 7.5 =

    Thank you Andrea that is great information, and like you said it is expensive to recycle and keep up all of those pools. Remember you all are still on an island, and allot of things on other islands ar ejust as expensive if not more. Personally its too much for me too.
