This was a fun place for the family to spend the day. We had free admission from staying at the Cascades, and easily found supplied beach chairs to hang out in for the afternoon. The water was very cold so we didn't stay in long (this coming from Canadians!), but I could see how nice it would have been in... More

A good water park, however there isn't a massive selection of slides, however the slides that they do have are pretty good! There is also a very big wave pool and a lazy river, and reasonably priced shops and food outlets on site.

Great fun, particularly the enormous wave machine which was awesome. Definitely a must if you're visiting Sun City, plenty of food options and a casino for the evening! :)

This is a fantastic place to spend your day. The food court is good and well designed for service, prices not too bad. A few shops for caps and sunblock and other forgotten items. Great for photography. Don't take food and drink in its not allowed. The top pool is my favourite and cocktails are served at the poolside.

This is fun for the Kids and actually the whole family but please note only in Summer. Also make sure you are there early in the morning and If you have a room at the Hotel they will give you towels for the day so you do not have to take your own.

I had so much fun in one day that I had to tell everyone about this. Everything you need was there. You didn't have to worry about getting board, or sit and watch the water or just swim the whole day. It was like taking a bottle from a baby by the time we had to leave. We are planning... More

There are some really fun waterslides, lazy river and wave pool. There is plenty of space for you to spread out on the sand beach with beach chairs for you to use and tables with umbrellas. My whole family had an incredible time. THere is food to order and ice cream. Plenty of bathroom facilities. It's not like a waterpark... More

Loved everything about valley of the waves It caters for everyone from young children to adults We used the pool at the top near the amphitheatre and there was loads of monkeys running around so beware don't leave any food in your bags or they will take everything
