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

We were looking for something simple and inexpensive to do with our 9 year old grandaughter on a Sunday afternoon. Water World was suggested and it was perfect. The wave pool had various levels of challenge. It was very low in the beginning so good for toddlers and got deeper the further in you went. They had the waves on... More

Laid back atmosphere, lots of locals, kids get dropped off regularly here. Lifeguards are really on their toes and are definitely keeping this park top notch. The dressing rooms and showers need upgrading, so def wear your flip flops. The grill should be called "the Fryer" because those are your only choices. Great iced tea, and a good selection of...
