A respite from the heat. There is a small kids pool off to the side. The snack bar has a good selection. However the wave pool is too small and very over crowded.

For the past 5 years we have bought season passes to WW. My 7 year old loves it and we do too. There is a large wave pool, 3 slides, The Great White ride, and of course the kiddie area. They allow coolers and offer grills in the shaded picnic area. The grounds are landscaped beautifully!

I recently just visited Water World for the first time. I was a little disappointed because when I got there I heard the life guard say they were turning the waves back on in the wave pool and it was only 4pm? The slides were fun, and its cheap and a nice place to enjoy the sun!

If you like extremely crowded areas, looooong lines for sub par water rides, overpriced everything and a bunch or disrespectful and unmannerly kids, then by all means go tho water world. Put your money toward gas and drive to the beach!

Pretty good. Everything is pretty clean and just as I remember it back in 1987. They had only 6 mats for water slide . Middle of summer and 6 mats. Makes no sense .

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.
