This is the perfect place to spend a hot summer day, especially With kids, water slides and a wave pool. It's not a big waterpark but it's convenient and a good place to get your feet wet for the day without having to drive to the beach.

This is not a water park on par with something like Big Kahuna in Florida or Whitewater in Atlanta, but it is a fun place to take kids and teenagers on a hot, summer day. The size is manageable so, with older kids, you can kind of make a home base and have them come check in with you on... More

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

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
