Showed up 1st thing in the morning (and they should open earlier by the way) and the lines were already terrible!!! Mostly because half the slides were closed. When a couple pays $70 for entry PLUS $10 for parking PLUS $10 for a locker... YOU EXPECT THEM TO AT LEAST HAVE THE RIDES OPEN! They also have a ride with... More

Overall this waterpark is lacking in many aspects comparing to other water parks I have been to. First of all there are no changing rooms so you have to use the restrooms to change which is new to us. Secondly, the staff, mostly students at their summer jobs, is quite distant and keep the lines unnecessary long. Then there were... More

Park can't operate at full capacity. Ran out of lockers. 40 minute wait for lunch. Not enough floats for the slides. Filthy water in the lazy river (band aids). Filthy bathrooms. So much alcohol being sold that it took 20 minutes to purchase a simple diet Pepsi. Park is a disaster waiting to happen. The mix of heat, crowds, poor... More

This review applies only to mid-week visits, especially later in the day!!! (I would never go on a weekend, and avoid Monday's and Fridays because of long lines) We live nearby, so it's great for my 10 year old. Season pass is reasonable so we can go anytime, sometimes for a full day and sometimes for a couple of hours.... More

This is a great water park with a wide selection of slides, including good areas for young children, as well as a wave pool and a lazy river. The food concessions we used were good quality. We spent a fun day and the time just flew past. Well worth a visit.

We had 2 adults and 4 kids and rented a cabana during the midweek for $125, For whatever reason, one of the kids didn't get a wristband so the 6 staff members standing at the podium decided to call in a manager who stormed over to us and demanded the kid without the wristband to leave the area. I told... More

We have taken our family to this park in the past, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. This was not the case on Sunday July 19, 2015. To begin with, two different slides were temporarily shut down for maintenance work and the average wait time was around 40-50 minutes per ride. Food and alcoholic beverage lines and prices were absolutely ridiculous. We... More

We went for a special Girl Scout event! The girls had a great time. Lots of lifeguards. Girls are 9 and 10 years old and they ran all over the place together. We felt safe in letting them do that. Park is not super huge so that's good. Food was provided by the event. It was good. Get there when... More

We were just in Colorado and wanted to take our 5 & 7 year olds to water world but it was closed due to poor weather. We were excited to learn there was one in California. Wow were we ever disappointed. It's nothing like the one in Colorado. Our 5 year old couldn't go on any of the slides except... More

Here's how the day went: 10:15: Line of cars all the way down Waterworld parkway and out to Willow Pass, get to the parking lot and it's $10 to park (regardless of what pass you have) 10:45: The line at the registers is out to the parking lot and not moving. I have a season pass, so I wait in... More
