We have bought season passes the past three year. Cheaper than going to the beach. They have a lot of water activities to explore.

We were there just Monday which was the last day they will be open this year. What a great place! The kids loved the giant slide and the wave pool. Everyone was nice and helpful

Nice size park with friendly staff. Kids a a blast but going on a sunny, hot Saturday there was nowhere to really get comfortable. Wave pool area was large,clean and fun but every lounge chair was taken not by people, but stuff hanging off of them while they went swimming. What I would recommend is bringing your own chairs, umbrella... More

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 .
