Went here on Sunday with my husband and stepson and it was great. We got there early as we are pass holders and immediately got a locker then found some lounge chairs in the shade by Tidal Wave Bay (wave pool). We decided to rent some inner tubes for the day and that is located conveniently by the wave pool... More

Fun water park at a reasonable price. Not many rides for children under 48 inches though. The wave pool was very popular. Food prices were alittle steep. Overall a very nice park.

What could be more fun on a warm summer day than a waterpark ? This one has an area for everyone. There is an area for the little ones as well as rides for the Big ones.be careful the ground can get a little hot on the feet.

I am not a big fan of waterparks but we had an excellent time at this one. We went on a somewhat cool and overcast day so it was not too crowded. We splurged on a cabana rental and the adults were able to relax, receive excellent service for all food and beverages and people watch while the kids visited... More

There was a lot of fun slides for the older kids, and husbands :) as well as a very neat area for the little ones. My son had a ball there. I was very impressed with how many life guards there were, and they were constantly walking around. I felt my kids were very safe. The restrooms were very clean!... More

This is a fun place for the whole family. The best deal is if you have this park included on your knotts berry farm annual pass. We have two 4 year olds and the little kid zone was perfect for them. Lifeguards were very attentive and the park was clean. Definitely going back.

Great value if added to an annual pass. Food lines are long and expensive. Not enough food choices. Kids love to go there. The Lazy River Is The best. Take your own chair and umbrella because there is never enough seating. I love the wave pool. Great area for small kids.

While not as fun and exciting as Raging Waters, the experience here was great nonetheless. The kids enjoyed all the different slides from the fast and exhilarating ones. To the slow pace of the lazy river.

This was a blast for my family, the kids went from water ride to water ride. They had such a great time. We really enjoyed the fact we could rent a gazebo to relax and enjoy our food and drink at lunch time. This was one of the best places we went to on this vacation. I highly recommend this... More
