First off, go during off season and middle of the week - you'll have plenty of room in the pools. 2 to 3 hours should get your fill. Stuff the little kids to any age. Find the islands and beach out for the day. Awesome time for some water fun.

Everything was fun. I am not a sun & sand person but my kids and hubby are. They had a blast - had to literally drag them out of the water for some food! Friendly staff. The place needs more umbrellas for the peak season though - I had to accost fellow visitors returning their umbrellas and accompany them to... More

It was a brilliant idea to design the valley of waves to experience the thrill of waves in a large pool. Great place to relax or sunbathe or ride the waves. You can enjoy good music and drinks and refreshments. it is a must visit.

This experience is very good where you could swim and feel as if you are in an ocean.The ambiance created is out of world. The area around is very relaxing and one can enjoy whole day just being there

Excellent resort and fun for whole family. We fortunately missed peak period and wait times were short. Only issue is having to pay high prices forcwater and the like when you are not allowed to carry anything in.

I have been to VOW a 3-4 times and last visited recently it in Dec 2014 at its peak over New Years. It is probably about the best water park in SA due to the wave pool. However I do feel it does need some improvement with the upgrades in slides or options. There is the lazy river, 2 tube... More

Yes, this is a number one family attraction. The wave pool is fantastic. The kids and adults had a ball. Expect quite a walk up to the rides and quite a wait. Try all of the rides. They must supply more tubes for the rides. Waiting for tubes for 20 minutes is unacceptable. I would not recommend sitting on the... More

This was our 4th visit in the past 12 years. My children ( now 16 & 14) still had a full day of fun and frolics, but as the bill payer, I noticed areas for improvement. The entry system, rental kiosk system & availability and the on site fast food ordering system, all need a rethink. The queues are long... More
