We had a BLAST at Water World in Dothan! The only thing I missed was having more shade. There was also a large group of children brought by busses the day we went (a couple hundred extra kids) which made the wave pool a bit crowded, but it was still a fun day.

This has to be one of the safest water parks around. The guards are always on post and won't hesitate to dive in when someone stays under too long. The wave pool is one of the more popular areas, though many brave the cyclone too.

Water World hits the spot for families with smaller children and for out-of-towners, but for locals and teens the draw is limited. What Water World offers is maintained, accessible, and really what you would expect from a small water park (wave pool, a couple swimming areas, a few slides, and food and merchandise vendors). A plus is that it is... More

I have been to this water park many times over the years with my daughters....I just wanted to mention the rude employees on this visit from the girl that took our money to the cluesless girls in the gift shop on that tues afternoon. Seems like such a nice place would expect better from their help. Makes a difference when... More

If you are over 60, you get in the park for free. You still have to pay for the grandkids, but it is still a good deal. There is plenty of shaded areas if you don't want too much sun.

Too many people for such a small water park. we could not enjoy oursleves because of the crowd. For the money we paid we should've been comfortable. The kids had fun so the trip wasn't a bust

What more can I say? Wave pool, kiddie pool, slide. Great place to take the kids on a hot summer day.

VERY large pool with wave machine that turns on with a warning. The pool has a slope that is very walkable with plenty of shallow space to just sit and play with the youngsters while the bigger kids play. There are also water slides and a great separate "kiddie pool" that keeps bigger kids from ruining the fun for the... More

Great spot to beat summer heat. Slides for all ages, in addition to wave pool. Lockers and food are offered. We especially enjoy half price on select evenings.

Not family friendly!!! Don't go!!! The teenager, Savannah, attending the Tadpole Hole was repeatably rude to my 3 year old child and discouraged her from coming down the tiny toddler slide. In contrast, she was very friendly to some other children that seemed hesitant to come down the slide. It seemed as if she simply didn't like my little girl.... More
