Thought I would hate it, ended up loving it!

It was my first time there (I'm a mom, late 40's). To be honest, i was kind of dreading it. But I ended up having a BLAST! Went with my husband and 2 kids 17 & 11. They also... read more

This place was awesome and perfect for family of various ages. Lets see I traveled with a 7.5 year old, 13 year old, 16 year sold, and 21 year old. two adults and a 74 year old. Diverse, right. I found the water and place clean, the food in there was not complete junk food, and the price was not... More

I just came back from Water world in Concord. I read all the reviews before I visited. I have to agree with most of them. Without an explanation the water temperature in all the pools vary. The wave pool is much warmer than all the others. The Lazy River feels like the arctic run off. Very cold. Now granted with... More

Good place to take a break and hang out in the water... Areas designed for smaller children are great for older toddlers to grade school. The slides are pretty fun. Last time we were there, one of the better slides was shut down... Looked like it was for maintenance work, possibly. Food is overpriced and just ok. Typical amusement park... More

I do not like this place. It is run down and dirty. The employees are mean and not helpful at all. The water is always freezing. The only food available is disgusting deep fried junk. I tried to bring in a bag of grapes for my son to have something healthy and the confiscated it at the front gate. The... More

Disappointed that during this closed event, the children's area of the water park was not open due to lack of personnel to supervise. There was a very large group of kids who missed out on the fun.

They have done a very good job of making the place fun for both young children, older children, and grandparents. The lines take a little long, but that is to be expected on hot days. Get there early to stake out a place to keep all your towels and other things; you will want shade if you can get it.... More

I hold out for a great offer on their season pass deals. I have a little 2 year old, and kids less than 3 years old, are free... so it is a great option to visit midweek, and when we have an extra hour or so, to introduce the little one to some of the younger-themed attractions. Chicken tenders are... More

We went on a Wednesday to avoid long waits. It didn't seem to matter. Wait times varied from 10 mins to almost a half hour per ride. Also, you aren't allowed to swim in the deep end of the wave pool, which seems odd. If you have really little guys, you may want to think twice. Even the wave pool... More

If you are expecting a heated pool, do not go here. We drove up to the parking lot ($10) and inquired about the temperature. But decided not to try it out.
