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 .

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!

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.
